According to the Daily Mail Online, tributes began pouring in for the ITV star after he was reportedly found dead in a forest near his Essex home.

Terrible news coming through that reality star Mike Thalassitis has been found dead.

He had enjoyed a successful sporting career before appearing on the reality show in 2017 and also had spells at Ebbsfleet and Welling.

Mike quickly garnered the nickname "Muggy Mike" following an altercation with Chris Hughes over Olivia. Please stop brandishing that. My heart and soul and love goes out to his friends & family. "A good guy, taken far, far to soon".

Mike Thalassitis first rose to fame on Love Island 2017. "My thoughts go out to all of Mikes friends and family".

Before his appearance on the ITV2 reality TV show, Mike was a League Two footballer. You'll be missed so much.

He was later dumped from the island with co-star Tyla Carr, and has since been in the public eye due to his on-off relationship with The Only Way is Essex star Megan McKenna.
