► Love Island contestants Megan Barton-Hanson and Kendall Rae Knight, who starred in the 2018 edition, have defended the producers of the show following the death of two former participants.

Sophie Gradon (2016 show) was found dead last year and Mike Thalassitis (2018 show) died on Friday.

Following their deaths, health secretary Matt Hancock said TV reality shows have a duty of care for contestants after they become famous.

The show has said it will offer “bespoke training” to all future contestants.
