Mike was a former League Two footballer who found fame on the ITV2 dating show in 2017.
He also appeared on the fourth series of Celebs Go Dating last year.
He joined fellow celebrities such as Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson and TOWIE’s Gemma Collins on the show.
Shocked fans took to social media to pay tribute to the reality TV star as the news emerged.
Last year the reality TV star split from girlfriend Megan McKenna after a seven month relationship.
The news of his death comes just two months after his best friend Danny Cutts passed away on Christmas Eve.
Former Love Island star Tyla Carr, who was coupled up with Mike on the show, lead the heartbreaking tributes on social media.
She said: “I can’t believe the call I’ve just had. Mike, you were love by all the Love island family. You’ll be missed so much. All my love goes out to your friends and family. Shocked.”
