Megan McKenna has pulled out of appearing on "Loose Women" following Mike Thalassitis" death.

The 26-year-old singer had been due to join the panel on the daytime talk show on Tuesday (19.03.19) to talk about her stint on "Celebs Go Dating" but "couldn't face" the idea of having to speak out because she's so distraught after her ex-boyfriend - who she dated on and off for seven months until last August - took his own life on Friday (15.03.19).

A source told The Sun Online: "Megan just couldn't face appearing on live TV today.

"Everyone has been really understanding and are giving her time to grieve."

Megan's decision came less than a day after she broke her social media silence for the first time since Mike's passing, admitting she is still "trying to come to terms" with his death.

She wrote: "I can't believe the call I've just had. Mike, you were loved by all of the Love island family. You'll be missed so much. All my love goes out to your friends and family. Shocked. (sic)"

"Love Island" presenter Caroline Flack also took to Instagram to describe the late star as a "total gentleman".

She wrote: "Mike... you were a total gentleman... I won't forget that ... it's so so sad ...you will be missed. RIP (sic)"

Police have confirmed that Mike's death is "not being treated as suspicious".
