Megan McKenna has reportedly pulled out of an appearance on Loose Women following the tragic death of her ex-boyfriend Mike Thalassitis.
The TOWIE star, 26, was apparently booked on the lunchtime chat show on Tuesday to discuss her stint on Celebs Go Dating.
However, it’s been said Megan has pulled out as she’s too devastated to work after Mike took his own life.
A source told The Sun: “Megan just couldn’t face appearing on live TV today.
“Everyone has been really understanding and are giving her time to grieve.”
Ent Daily has contacted reps for Megan and Loose Women for comment.
On Monday, Megan broke her silence on Mike’s death and admitted she’s in “complete shock”.
Posting a statement to Instagram, Megan paid tribute to Mike.
She wrote: “Sorry I haven’t been on social media but I’m in complete shock and trying to come to terms with this.
“I can’t believe I’m even writing this post. My thoughts and prayers are with Mike’s family. Rest in peace Mike x.”
Megan and Mike dated for seven months before splitting in July of last year.
Speaking to OK! Magazine at the time of their split, Megan said: “I can’t even say why we split. I just feel like we’re both at different point in our lives.
“We both respect each other and we didn’t want it to get nasty or messy. There is only so much you can do in a relationship and when it’s not working you’ve got to take separate routes.
“But I wish him all the luck in the world.”
On Sunday, police confirmed Mike died of suicide by hanging.
“Police were called to a park near Latymer Way, N9 at 09:28hrs on Saturday, 16 March to reports of a man found hanged,” they said.
“Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended and found a man, aged in his 20s, deceased.
“At this early stage, the death is not being treated as suspicious. The man’s next of kin have been informed. A file will be prepared for the coroner.”
