Sophie was one half of Love Island’s first same-sex couple. Before Sophie’s death, the couple had just returned from a holiday in Antibes, Cannes, and Nice, France after celebrating Armstrong’s 25th birthday. Also, she was known to be secretly battling depression and anxiety for the last couple of years.

“She was house-sitting for her family who had gone away on holiday. She had seemed in good spirits and had offered to come over to Medburn to stay in the house while they were away. They had seen no cause for concern.”
