A host of Love Island and TOWIE stars join Mike Thalassitis's grieving family

Reality TV stars have come together to say their final goodbyes to Love Island star Mike Thalassitis. 

The former footballer and reality TV star was found hanged in a park near his home in Edmonton, north London on March 15 at the age of just 26. 

Mike was said to be suffering from depression and financial troubles, and struggling to come to terms with the loss of his grandmother, who had passed away days earlier. 

Dozens of mourners have gathered outside Christ Church in Southgate, north London, where the star is being laid to rest.  

Others at the poignant service included Amber Davies, Montana Brown, Jonny Mitchell, Jamie Jewitt and Camilla Thurlow, who appeared on the 2017 series of Love Island with Mike, alongside the host of the ITV2 show, Caroline Flack. 

Mourners stopped to pay their respects to Mike's older brother Nick, who often shared pictures of their close-knit family on social media.   

Mike's friend and fellow Love Island star Montana Brown, who was visibly distraught as she made her way into the church, posted an emotional tribute on Instagram this morning reading: 'Wished today would never come'.  

The order of service featured touching words, 'Do not stand at my grave and weep,' from the 1932 poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye, alongside photos of Mike as a baby and pictures taken during his football career.
