A Met Police spokesperson said in a statement they had been called to a park near Latymer Way about 9.30am yesterday to “reports of a man found hanged”.

The 26-year-old was found in woodland near his Essex home yesterday.

Last night, The Sun revealed Mike was left grief-stricken in recent days over the death of his beloved grandmother.

Dan Wooton said: “He was grieving the loss of his nan.”

“She was 94 and he had moved in to live with her because she needed a full-time carer. He assured me he was fine and was excited about the launch of his shop.

“There was so much in store for his future that this is truly senseless.

“Mike wasn’t the lad you saw on Love Island. He was tender and sensitive and vulnerable and desperate for true love. Rest in peace, mate. I will miss you.”

Mike was also reported to be shell-shocked by the death of a close friend on Christmas Eve.
