The boyfriend of Love Island UK star Sophie Gradon has reportedly been found dead just weeks after she died.

Aaron Armstrong's body is said to have been discovered in his home in Blyth, Northumberland, on Tuesday (local time).

The day before, he posted a heart-wrenching tribute to Sophie on his Instagram account.

"[I] just wish I could cuddle you all day," Armstrong captioned a photo of the couple together.

"[I] miss you so much man Sophie. Not a minute goes by without your gorgeous smile being a picture in my mind. Every day we spent together was so amazing - I need them days back.

"I love you princess."

Local police have confirmed to media that a 25-year-old man had been found deceased at a property on Furnace Road in Bebside, Blyth.

"There is not believed to be any third party involvement and a report will now be prepared for the coroner," a police spokesperson said.

Sophie was aged 32 when she died on June 20. Her body was reportedly discovered by Aaron at her parents' house in Ponteland, Northumberland.

The former Miss Great Britain had been battling depression and anxiety. An inquest into her death was opened and adjourned, with police not seeking anyone in connection to it.
