Share article:

A "Love Island" hopeful has claimed Mike Thalassitis" ghost told her to apply for the show.

Sorcha Farnan, 18, has insisted the late reality star - who sadly took his own life in March aged 26 - appeared in her dream and "spoke about his death" while encouraging her to go into the villa this summer.

Adding that Mike's ghost told her she was destined to be the next big thing during their spooky meeting, she told the Daily Star newspaper: "A few nights after Mike's death he came to me."

Sorcha - who has more than 5,000 followers on Instagram - also claims Mike later sent her another ghostly message through a medium, and admitted the experience has left her baffled.

She said: "I've never been so flabbergasted. I felt an energy take over me. I got flustered and went a bit red."
