His last posts on social media had also spoken about Gradon. In an Instagram post on Monday, Armstrong posted another picture of them both and confessed that he wished he could cuddle her all day.
He added that he missed her and not a minute went by without him picturing her gorgeous smile. On Friday, Gradon was laid to rest.
After her service, Armstrong tributed her by sharing a photo of the order of service. It featured a black and white picture of the reality star on the cover.
He revealed that he loved her with all his heart and couldn’t stop crying. The former Miss Great Britain died suddenly after battling anxiety and depression.
It is thought that she was discovered at her parents' home in Northumberland in an upstairs room by her boyfriend. Gradon had moved in temporarily to house sit for her parents while they enjoyed some time away.
A friend said she had given no sign of feeling depressed or down when she arrived.
