A Love Island hopeful has claimed that Mike Thalassitis ' ghost appeared to her to tell her she needs to go on the show.
Sorcha Farnan says the late reality star, who tragically took his own life in March, appeared to her in a dream and "spoke about his death".
The 18-year-old claims Mike, who appeared on the ITV2 dating show in 2017, told her she should go into the villa this summer and that she's destined to be reality TV's next big thing.
"A few nights after Mike's death he came to me," she told the Daily Star .
Sorcha claims Mike spoke to her about his death in the dream and then later sent her a message through a medium.
She said: "I've never been so flabbergasted. I felt an energy take over me.
"I got flustered and went a bit red."
Sorcha already has a social media following of more than 5,000 people and regularly posts sexy bikini-clad snaps on Instagram .
Mike was tragically found dead in March at the age of 26.
He is believed to have taken his own life following a battle with mental health problems, and the inquest into his death has been scheduled for this month.
It's been reported that bosses won't pay an on-air tribute to him when the show returns for a fifth series next month.
It's said bosses will instead pay tribute to him on their on-demand service instead.
A source told The Sun that they felt it was "more appropriate" to do it there.
Since the loss of Mike, and the tragic death of 2016 contestant Sophie Gradon last year, ITV bosses have announced a major shake-up for the 2019 series.
Producers detailed plans to introduce new safeguards to look after contestants, including bringing in therapy for all of the Islanders, even if they don't ask for help.
As well as offering therapy, contestants will now be given social media training and financial management advice.
