Just weeks after announcing her death, Gradon's boyfriend Aaron Armstrong has now also been found dead.

The body of Aaron Armstrong, 25, is said to have been discovered at a house in Blyth, Northumberland, on Tuesday.

A family friend told the Sun they were "absolutely gutted" about Aaron's death, so soon after Sophie's.

Confirming Mr Armstrong's death, Northumbria Police said: "There is not believed to be any third party involvement and a report will now be prepared for the coroner".

"She had suffered from depression and anxiety and there was talk of financial issues which obviously adds to the worry she was enduring".

Friends and family gathered to pay their respects at Sophie's funeral at St George's Church in Jesmond, Newcastle on Thursday 5 July.

On Monday, he had posted an emotional tribute to his girlfriend on Instagram.
