Megan and Mike dated for a period in 2018, before announcing they had split amicably. Megan also dated Pete Wicks, but the couple broke up in 2017.
Despite their tumultuous relationship - which was highly-publicised at the time - Pete and Megan appear to have put aside their differences, as Wicks lends his support to Megan.
Speaking to The Mirror, Pete said: "It's a really tragic thing and I feel for Mike's family and friends. It's been a big shock to everyone but especially Megan, given their history.
"Everyone always saw me and Megan as being a nightmare and toxic, which in a relationship we were. But she's a lovely person. I might not be the best boyfriend but I'm a good friend. Whatever she needs, I'm there."
In response to Mike's death, ITV released a statement declaring their commitment to supporting Love Island contestants after the villa.
Sophie Gradon, another former Love Island cast member, also died of suspected suicide in June 2018. Her partner at the time, Aaron Armstrong, was then found dead at his house in July the same year.
