Thalassitis split from The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna late past year. I'm in shock. Mike you are going to be sorely sorely missed.

Fenton tweeted: "I'm lost for words. My thoughts go out to all of Mikes friends and family". Mike, you were love by all the Love island family.

He said: "I genuinely can't believe what I'm seeing here".
