    Sophie Gradon had previously tweeted about loss of meaning in life, expressing an incredible fear of solitude and detailing her multiple phobias.

    Love Island 2016 star Sophie Gradon, who claimed to have "sold her soul to reality TV" was found dead at her parents' home near Newcastle last night, The Daily Mail wrote.

    The 32 year-old rose to fame after she won the beauty pageant "Miss Britain" back in 2009. Separately, she attracted loads of attention due to her unselfconscious way of expressing her views and acting in front of the camera. The press service for the television channel ITV, which broadcasts the wildly popular show Love Island, in which the woman starred in 2016, expressed their condolences to her family and friends.

    Gradon is believed to have suffered from long-lasting depression lately, which she told her subscribers about on her Twitter account.

    "Hi guys, no not dead just battling a little bit of depression. I'll come back I promise x." she notably tweeted in September. Last year's pessimism, however, gave way to much more inspiring posts this April and May.

    "Thinking back to when I became a total recluse, afraid to go out anywhere bc of crippling anxiety & how different my life is now!!!" Sophie noted in one of her posts two months ago.
