It has been three weeks now since the death of Love Island star, Mike Thalassitis.

Mike, who appeared on Love Island 2017, was reportedly found near his home in Essex after taking his own life.

The star who was laid to rest on Friday saw co-stars, friends and fans flock to a service in Southgate, North London to say their final goodbyes.

Love Island star, Montana Rose Brown gave the eulogy at the mass noting that she’s never felt so empty and heartbroken that she couldn’t help him.

But as Montana shares her emotions online, Mike’s ex, Megan McKenna opted to mourn in private. Removing herself from social media for three weeks as she came to terms with Mike’s passing and focused on work.

Megan posted a short message following Mike’s death to say that her thoughts and prayers were with Mike’s family and that she was too shocked to write anything.
