Gradon, who appeared on the 2016 version of Love Island, tragically passed away on June 20, a couple of weeks after, the body of her boyfriend Aaron was discovered. A spokesperson for Northumbria Police confirmed: “At around 12.20pm today [10 July] police received a report from the ambulance service that a 25-year-old man had been found deceased at a property on Furnace Road in Bebside, Blyth”. It was not a murder, the police explained. A day before, Armstrong had posted an emotional message for Gradon on Instagram. Writing, that he was craving to hug her and could not stop thinking about her for a minute. Gradon had previously spoken out about her battles with anxiety and depression. The causes of both deaths have not been officially confirmed, but police suggest that in both cases it apparently was a suicide. The model was open about her bisexuality during her time on Love Island, which has faced criticism for its lack of LGBT representation previously. She was also the first person to form a same-sex couple with fellow islander Katie Salmon. Salmon paid tribute to the late star after Gradon’s shock death at age 32, saying that the world had “failed” her.
