An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of former Love Island contestant Sophie Gradon who died last week.
The 32-year-old was found dead at her parents’ address in Ponteland, Northumberland, reportedly by her boyfriend.
Northumbria Police said there were not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.
Gradon, who was named Miss Great Britain in 2009 and had been crowned Miss Newcastle the previous year, died on June 20.
Her parents, Colin and Deborah Gradon, said in a statement to the Press Association on Wednesday: “It has been one week since we lost our precious daughter and we as a family are still coming to terms with our sudden loss. Our hearts are broken.
“We wish to say our goodbyes to Sophie in private so we ask that you
respect our family’s privacy during this arduous time.”
