Love Island statement following the death of Mike Thalassitis

Today the programme has responded to criticisms the show has faced about the level of aftercare offered.

The statement comes after former Love Island contestant Mike Thalassitis tragically took his own life and was found dead on Saturday at the age of 26.

Since Mike's passing many former contestants have hit out at the show about the level of aftercare provided, with many revealing how producers have been frantically calling them this week to check that they're OK.
