Malin Andersson doesn't think "Love Island" should air this summer after Mike Thalassitis" suicide.

The 26-year-old beauty, who appeared in the 2016 series of the ITV2 reality dating show, used Twitter to ask her followers whether or not it should take a break, following the tragic death of Mike - who passed away last month, aged 26 - and admitted she feels "the bad outweighs the good" in regards to wether the popular programme should return to screens so soon.

She asked her 435.8k followers: "Do you think Love Island should air this summer? (sic)"

She then wrote: "I reckon the bad outweighs the good (sic)"

Some of Malin's fans felt it would be unnecessary to place the programme on hold, whilst others expressed that the show should be taken off air completely.

Mike was not the first "Love Island" contestant to take their own life.

Sophie Gradon - who starred on the show the same year as Malin - was found dead in her flat last June.

Malin previously deemed the show's aftercare "not enough" after Sophie's death.

She said: "I don't blame the show itself, because we asked to go on it, but I think the care received wasn't enough.

"If someone is crying for help, like Sophie kind of did, and asked for help after it, with a psychiatrist or whatever. I think that they should have noted that and realised.

"We have psych tests before the show, to see if we're fit to be in the villa. But afterwards, we need more support coming out."

The brunette beauty thinks reality TV is a "weird industry" and can understand why people who are thrown into the limelight like that develop depression when it's over.

She explained: "It's like you're constantly reaching for some kind of high and when work dies down and things go quiet you're constantly trying to chase it - and that's where depression can kick in. A lot of fellow friends that have been on shows have said the same, and it's something that's not looked into as much. It's really serious. I've been there myself and it's horrible."
