Montana Brown is known for her bubbly personality and quick jokes, but underneath that lies a girl that’s mourning.
The stunning Love Island star tragically lost her best friend four years ago.
She was voted the viewers’ favourite contestant in last night’s episode proving how much she’s had an affect on people, but hasn’t mentioned her friends death.
Her bestie Harry Faulker died suddenly in 2013 after playing a game of squash.
They met through mutual friends during their school days.
Harry’s father Stefan watched his son play a winning shot during a squash game, and then suddenly went ‘grey’, and fell unconscious.
He was later pronounced dead in hospital two hours later.
The 21-year-old Islander has previously paid tribute to her best friend, and wrote “I love you” underneath a black and white photo of him.
A friend of Montana’s told The Sun: “It was a huge shock and loss for Montana – she and Harry were the best of pals, she cried for days after he died.
“But she’s determined not to forget him and he will always have a special place in her heart.
“She often reminisces about the laughs they shared.”
After a dramatic few days upon entering the villa after her love interest Dom Lever dumped her for Jess Shears, the Hertfordshire-born girl has found another man.
The gorgeous Alex Beattie rocked up to the villa with eyes for Montana, and boy, has she been swept off her feet!
They were even voted over 90 per cent compatible by viewers.
After their date, they also spent a night alone in the hideaway together, with Montana telling everybody that she was VERY pleased about the size of his package.
“I woke up this morning next to her and I was just like, ‘I have won’… Me and Mon have progressed to another stage. I would say she is a little rocket.”
Talking before she went into the villa about her relationship history, Montana said she never had much luck.
“Yeah, my first proper boyfriend, we went out for about a year. I never, ever thought he would cheat on me. He was in love with me”, she said.
Adding: “When I found out he’d cheated, I thought, ‘No, he can’t have, he’s in love with me’. I think that’s why I find it hard to trust now. Because even if he’s in love with you, he can still do it, so how do you know if they’re going to do it or not?
“Now, I’m so ready to be with someone and be with them and open up my heart again. I’ve got to give it another go.”
We definitely think she and Alex are perfect for each other!
