Famous reality show star, 32, found dead at home
Sophie Gradon, a reality television personality, rose to fame in 2016 as one half of Love Island's first same-sex couple. She partnered with Kate Salmon.
As reported by Daily Star, the former beauty pageant's body was found by Northumbria Police at her home in Ponteland on Wednesday. She was 32 years old.
Earlier today, her boyfriend, Aaron Armstrong, shared a photo on Facebook and expressed his grief about losing the love of his life
'I will never forget that smile I love you so so much baby your my world forever ever and always.'

Her followers were devasted and took to Twitter to mourn her death. Eleanor Rose Murphy refused to believe that [Gradon] passed away, saying she was young and still had 'too much going for her.'
Catherine Allen said social media is deceiving because even 'when it looks like you have everything, you can feel like you have nothing.'
According to Daily Mail, Gradon was crowned as a former Miss Newcastle ten years ago. In 2010, she was also crowned as Miss Great Brittain.

During her time on Love Island, she first started a relationship with fellow contestant Tom Powell, and later began dating Katie Salmon, a model.
Earlier this month, she traveled with Armstrong to Antibes in southeastern France. Gradon described the trip as 'having a magical time.'
It was her first visit to Antibes and she told her Facebook followers that she was 'blown away by the beauty of the place.'
Her death is being investigated and authorities are awaiting the coroner's report as the cause of her death is still unknown.
However, a police spokesperson confirmed that there are no "suspicious circumstances surrounding her death." To stay updated as the story unfolds, follow us on Twitter, at AmoMama USA.
