The cause of death is not known. In a statement issued to the Mirror, a Northumbria Police spokesperson said: “At about 8.27pm yesterday (June 20) police attended a property in Medburn, Ponteland, where sadly a 32-year-old woman was found deceased.

“There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding her death. A report will now be prepared for the coroner.”

HuffPost UK has contacted Sophie’s manager for comment. 

Sophie appeared on series two of ‘Love Island’ and made history by becoming one half of the first and only same-sex couple to ever appear on the show.

Her time on the programme came to an end when she chose to leave just two days after coupling up with co-star Katie Salmon, who eventually ended the show in fourth place, alongside partner Adam Maxted.
