Love Island producers have announced they will offer future contestants pre-show training and therapy following two suicides.

Love Island bosses will now offer therapy to all contestants following the deaths of two former stars, ITV have said.

Love Island this week suffered backlash from the public following the death of former contestant, Mike Thalassitis.

Mike, 26, was found hanged on Saturday – It comes almost a year Sophie Gradon was found dead.

The show’s executives carried out a review six months ago into the aftercase of contestants, in a recent statement they said: “This review has led us to extend our support processes to offer therapy to all Islanders and not only those that reach out to us.

“And we will be delivering bespoke training to all future Islanders to include social media and financial management.”

They continued: “The key focus will be for us to no longer be reliant on the islanders asking us for support but for us to proactively check in with them on a regular basis.”
