Love Island viewers have grown concerned for Ellie Brown, after fans realised that she was friends with former contestant Sophie Gradon – who was found dead yesterday at the age of 32.
The former Miss Great Britain, who starred on the popular ITV2 reality show back in 2016, was found dead at her home in Medburn, near Newcastle, yesterday.
