Tom Powell: ‘Love Island stars’ suicides not linked to show’

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Love Island’s Tom Powell says the suicides of Caroline Flack, Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon are not linked to the show.
Tom appeared on the programme in 2016 alongside Sophie and he believes the tragic deaths of Sophie, Mike and presenter Caroline, who took their own lives in 2018, 2019 and 2020 respectively, have nothing to do with ‘Love Island’.
Chatting to Simon Gross on ‘Get Gossy With Grossy’, Tom said: “I don’t think Sophie’s death or Mike or Caroline’s were due to the show. Sophie had her own problems she would get down, very down.
“We spoke to each other every week without fail and she would FaceTime me. She was the kindest soul I have ever met!”
‘Love Island’ returned to screens this summer for the first time since February 2020, after the summer 2020 and winter 2021 editions were axed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
And, last month, ‘Love Island’ bosses announced a range of measures to help contestants, including social media training, “comprehensive psychological support” and the offer of a minimum of eight therapy sessions afterwards.
Dr. Paul Litchfield – who ITV appointed in 2018 to review the show’s participant welfare processes – commented: “Society’s appreciation of the importance of mental health and wellbeing has grown enormously in recent years and the pandemic has brought that into even sharper focus.
“Reducing the risk of harm, where possible, is an imperative but promoting good mental health is also necessary.
“ITV’s evolving commitment to these issues, backed up by tangible action, is an example to others in the industry and beyond.”
Dr. Matthew Gould – who works as a consultant chartered clinical psychologist – added: “Duty of care is not a static goal.
“It evolves with public expectation, legislation, and with the commercial development of the programme format in order to maintain creativity.
“Effective delivery of care is an exercise in collaboration especially between health professionals, programme participants and producers.”
