But Mike, who took his own life in March aged 26, left just a few thousand pounds to his dad Andreas, 62.

His estate was worth more than £24,700, official documents show. Yet, after debts and taxes were paid, it was cut to less than half that sum.

He was popular with fans, boasting 650,000 Instagram followers.

Details of Mike’s will emerged just 24 hours after his restaurant, The Skillet, shut down four months after its launch.

It was opened shortly after Mike’s death by his friend and business partner Scott Neilson in Loughton, Essex.

The reality star’s body was found by a jogger in a North London park in March.

He was believed to have struggled with debts after Love Island.

Mike was also grieving for his 94-year-old gran and had recently split from Towie star Megan McKenna, 26.

An inquest heard, he hanged himself after drinking and taking cocaine. A post mortem also found traces of anti-depressants.

His suicide was the second among former Love Island contestants in less than a year. Sophie Gradon, 32, also hanged herself in June 2018.

The deaths prompted an inquiry by a Commons committee into the care offered to reality TV participants.
