Love Island star, Mike Thalassitis, 26, left suicide notes to his family then hanged himself in a park after an alcohol and cocaine binge, an inquest heard today. His body was found hanging by a woman jogging near his home in Edmonton, north London, on March 16.

In a book next to Mike's body were harrowing notes to his family. In the book, he "clearly set out his intention that his life should come to an end."

Following his death, Mike's mother Shirley, father Andy, brother Nick and fellow Love Island 2017 star Montana Brown all attended the inquest at north London Coroner's Court this morning.

A coroner ruled a verdict of suicide after toxicology results showed there was cocaine, ethanol and paracetamol in his system when he died.

After the hearing, Montana, who broke down after Mike's death when she realised she had not replied to his final text message, hugged his mother outside the court.

Speaking after today's hearing Montana said: "I don't really have too much to say, but what I will say is I think when someone dies in this way you don't give up on the memory and I think that a lot of people are scared to talk about it.

"But I think it's important to let his memory live on and remember the importance of why this happened, and to change your own life on what terrible, terrible thing has happened to Mike.

"I think everyone should be nicer, a little bit kinder - it's such an awful world we live in, it's just nice to be nice."

She added: "I've definitely changed the way I live my life - and I urge others to do the same."

Reading a statement on behalf of Mike's family, his manager Dave Read said: "We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kind messages and support during this very difficult time.

"Today's inquest concluded the sad news at the loss of our beautiful son and brother. 

"We would respectfully request privacy at this time and digest what has happened to our family.

"Mike was a wonderful son and brother and will be dearly missed."
