Fans were unsure if the Islanders had been told about Sophie’s death, and making matters worse – it was revealed that Ellie Brown was friend’s with the former contestant.
However, it appears the Islanders were told about her tragic passing off camera.
Aaron, 25, was found dead at his home on Monday, just hours before revealing that he tried to take his own life four years ago.
Responding to a troll on Instagram who accused him on attention-seeking, Aaron said, “I found her. [Sophie] I took my own life 4 years ago and got took down by my brother. You know nothing you stupid f***ing ****.”
“I make my choice like she did. I’ve been fighting this for 10 years. Go f*** yourself. This post I’m talking to her, not any of you. Scum bag people like you drive people to suicide. Hope u happy,” he added.
Sophie starred on Love Island back in 2016.
