Jack Fowler calls for more support in wake of Mike Thalassitis death

Share article:

Jack Fowler feels "angry" over Mike Thalassitis" death and has called for stronger support for reality TV stars.

The former "Love Island" star is "heavy hearted" and "confused" about the tragic passing of the 26-year-old reality TV hunk - who was found dead in woodland near his home in Essex on Friday (15.03.19) - and has demanded there be more psychiatric support for people suffering from depression and mental health.

In a post on his Twitter page on Monday (18.03.19), Jack wrote: "Heavy hearted angry & confused. Things need to change. I learnt about Pythagoras therums in school. But I was never taught once about different organizations or support networks when it came to depression or mental health or more importantly, signs to look out for in myself or in someone else.

"Prevention is better than the cure. From young we should be taught that talking about how we feels is apart of growing up. (sic)"

While the TV hunk - who, like Mike, was a contestant on the hit ITV2 dating show - admits he had psychiatry tests "before and immediately after" "Love Island", he says more should be done about showing people how to cope with the "negative effects" of being "nationally known".

He wrote: "Personal experience .. yeah I had psychiatry tests before and immediately after love island. But I feel like once your off the TV screen then the support network isn't what it should be. You became nationally known and that's amazing to a certain degree, but what you don't see is the after shock of it all & how to cope with the negative effects. (sic)"

Growing concerns have been raised for the well-being of the show's contestants as last year Love Island 2016's Sophie Gradon passed away aged 32.

Jack warned wannabe "Love Island" stars that appearing in reality TV is not as glamorous and exciting as it may seem.

He added: "If your getting yourself involved in this industry then you NEED to realise that it's not what it looks like. "Ive now lost two people to the same circumstances, both off the same show. And now I can't help but think who's next (sic)"
