On Thursday, June 21, the awful news was confirmed that British reality TV star and former beauty pageant winner Sophie Gradon has passed away. She was only 32-years-old at the time of her death.
Police confirmed that Sophie had passed away at the extremely young age but said that they do not have reason to believe at this point that it was under suspicious circumstances. They will be conducting a coroner’s report which should reveal more information. Sadly, many people are under the impression that Gradon took her own life, though nothing has been confirmed.
A police spokesperson from Northumbria said, “At about 8:27 pm yesterday (June 20) police attended a property in Medburn, Ponteland, where sadly a 32-year-old woman was found deceased.”
They continued, “There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding her death. A report will now be prepared for the coroner.”
Gradon was a reality TV star on the show “Love Island.” After the news of her death emerged, a representative for the show made an official comment.
They said, “The whole ITV2 and Love Island team are profoundly saddened to hear the news about Sophie, and our deepest sympathies and thoughts go to her family and friends.”
Gradon was once crowned as Miss Great Britain and before that was Miss Newcastle, where she comes from. People often talked about her as being beautiful on the outside and on the inside.
Sophie’s boyfriend, Aaron, also confirmed her death via his personal Facebook account. The couple, who had recently taken an exotic trip for his birthday, had just confirmed their relationship in recent months.
Aaron said, “I will never forget that smile I love you so so much baby your my world forever ever and always.”
Several cast members from her old reality TV show spoke out as well. They all shared their deepest condolences and spoke highly of her personality. Fans around the world have spoken out as well:
