She wrote: "Sorry I haven't been on social media but I'm in complete shock and trying to come to terms with this.

"I can't believe I'm even writing this post.

"My thoughts and prayers are with Mike's family. Rest in peace Mike. X (sic)"

Mike's body was found in woodland near his Essex home in March, and just weeks later his manager Dave Read claimed the star's break up with Megan had "hit him really hard".

He said: "I don't want to pretend I know all of Mike's medical history because I don't.

"But I will say that he was very down after he split from Megan McKenna.

"He openly admitted that he had really fallen for her. She was his first proper girlfriend and, although he'd dated other people in the past, it was the first time he'd fallen in love.

"The break-up hit him really hard and he was down for a few months."
