Mary and Aaron Simpson were dumped from the island days before the final. The pair made an appearance on Love Island: Aftersun on Sunday.
However, fans of the show have noticed unlike her fellow dumped Islanders, the model from Wakefield has not posted much content on her social pages. Viewers have also noticed Mary's absence.
Mary has revealed her grandmother died during her time in the Love Island villa. After arriving home she attended her funeral and took time away from the public eye to mourn.
In a touching tribute on Instagram, Mary said: "Our angel on earth is now our angel in heaven.
"Coming off the show has been bitter sweet [sic] for me as I flew home to go to the funeral of my beautiful grandma who passed away whilst I was in the villa. I’ve been taking the time since the show to mourn, reflect, and be back with my loved ones before returning to my social media.
I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the support I have received at this difficult time, I truly appreciate everything."
Mary posted a second tribute on her Instagram Stories where she mentioned a dream she had about her grandmother when she was in the villa at the time her she died.
“Looking back at that dream I know she came to me to say her goodbyes as I couldn’t be with her in person,” Mary wrote. “I know now more than ever that she is by our sides forever…”
Mary and Aaron's Love Island journey began when she entered as a Casa Amor bombshell. After exploring her connection with Toby Aromolaran, she was brought back to the main villa. But they weren't meant to be as Toby soon realised he had a stronger connection with his original beau Chloe Burrows and swiftly broke things off with Mary.
Aaron arrived shortly after Dale - who Mary also had an initial connection with - was dumped. After being voted one of the least compatible couples, Mary and Aaron were dumped.
