Sam Thompson has taken to his social networking accounts to share a lovely tribute to his Celebs Go Dating co-star Mike Thalassitis who was found dead over the weekend.
The pair who meet while filming Celebs Go Dating in 2018 struck up a lovely friendship and where inseparable on screen and in their personal life’s.
‘A person just died. A friend just died. Someone that i know in my heart of hearts i could have done more for.
‘I met Mike on celebs go dating. I was told he was joining the show with me and my heart sank. I had heard all of the things said about this so called lothario. This cock sure arrogant guy, who was fresh out of love island and ready to steam roll this dating show that i was so terrified to join.
He then continued to say:
‘He came over to me, handed me a drink, apologised for not saying hello earlier, told me he was terrified and said he couldn’t wait to hang out more’ Sam recalled.
‘I stood there rather ashamed at how badly i had just judged a book by its cover. Over the next few months, the shame only grew. This guy was one of the most polite gentlemen i had ever met. [sic]’
They really did have a great friendship it just so heartbreaking.
