The model appeared alongside him on the ITV show in 2017, and admitted she has been left feeling ‘angry’ at the former footballer, 26, after he was found hanged in in a park in Edmonton, North London on Saturday, and ‘heartbroken’ that she was unable to help him.

Alongside recent photographs of the pair enjoying a night out together in London, she wrote: ‘I’ve thought long and hard about what I want to say, I’ve woken up and unfortunately this wasn’t just a nightmare so this is to you Mr Thala. 

‘Firstly, I’m so angry at you for doing this because you are so loved by so many people and I just wish you picked up the phone so we could’ve sorted this out.

‘This didn’t need to happen. Secondly, it annoys me that you were so misunderstood. ‘Muggy Mike’ was your stage name and let’s face it, the ladies did fall at your feet BUT everyone had this impression of you and you were literally the opposite you were one of a kind.

‘Mike, you were so thoughtful, caring and loyal to me and all your friends, you know some of my darkest secrets and I know yours.

‘I could always rely on you to tell me when I’m being a nut job to Elliott and tell me to get off his case and I always told you to stop partying too much and getting too p*ssed.

‘I just wish people had a tiny glimpse of what the real you was like,’ wrote Montana, before giving her followers an insight into his kind and caring character, and revealing that recently he had been in a ‘dark place’.

She penned: ‘You sent me a Christmas card in the post this year, you checked up on me everyday at the beginning of this year when I was struggling myself, you really were the kindest, sweetest person and I am so devastated and crushed that I’ll never get to see you again.

‘Now I know you were in a dark place a few months back and I thought you were past it and that you were on the up.

‘I got you to buy The Magic, you wrote down your gratitudes, you had the pictures of your family in your car to remind you to be grateful for them.

‘I just don’t know how I didn’t notice… I am absolutely heart broken that I couldn’t help you.

‘Your phone call a few days ago to tell me that I’m smashing the swimwear, you’re proud of me and that you’re grateful for my friendship is the only thing that’s keeping me going right now. At least you knew how much you meant to me.’

She wrote: ‘I will help open your cafe with Scott because you worked so hard on it so don’t you worry!

‘I can’t imagine how much pain you must have been in to do this, and the fact that you went through this on your own breaks my heart. 

‘I’m so so sorry I couldn’t do more to help you. I have so much love for you Mike and I will never forget you. Sleep tight darling and I miss you so much already.’ 

In an Instagram story, she captioned a photograph of him: ‘So heartbroken. This should’ve never happened to you. What a waste, I feel so helpless, I’d do anything to have you back.’

In addition to her long written tribute to her late friend, Montana also spoke to BBC, admitting she is still in ‘shock’ following the news of Mike’ death. 

She confessed: ‘I am absolutely in shock of the news. In fact I don’t even quite believe it yet as I spoke to him [on Friday].’

Montana also insisted that the public’s perception of Mike didn’t chime with the real-life reality, describing her former Love Island co-star as ‘thoughtful, caring, and … fiercely loyal’.

Speaking to the BBC, Montana explained: ‘Mike was so misunderstood – on television he was known as playing the ladies and everyone had this perception that he was this classic lad that didn’t have feelings.

‘I can honestly say, Mike was thoughtful, caring, and so fiercely loyal to his friends and family and really would do anything for them.’
