She tweeted: "You were such an intricate, creative, intelligent soul".

While Olivia Buckland shared a series of tweets expressing her grief at the loss of her co-star.

"You helped us through so much". Your smile was one in a million.

'A young woman who hasn't harmed anyone but a woman who has faced a torrent of judgmental and close minded opinions since leaving Love Island. "All my love and thoughts with your nearest & dearest". I can not work out what to say.
