Wayne Lineker pays tribute to Mike Thalassitis as he gives fans a look at floral tributes inside Love Island star’s new restaurant – The Sun

WAYNE Lineker revealed the floral tributes fans have left in the window of Mike Thalasstitis' new restaurant The Skillet.

The Love Island star was found hanged in a park close to his North London home on March 16 at the age of 26.

Nightclub owner Wayne is working with Mike's business partner and friends to ensure the opening of the late star's new bar/restaurant on Saturday night is one to remember.

Showing off The Skillet before its big launch, Wayne revealed the heartfelt tribute in the window before giving a tour inside the establishment.

Inside are red leather booths and a large bar that stretches almost the width of the venue.

Wayne wrote: "Heartbreaking he won't be here to see his creation #ripmike."

Mike went into business with pal Scott Neilson who will still open the bar in his honour.

Confirming the restaurant would open as planned, a statement on The Skillet's Instagram read: "Just to address all the speculation.

"I would like to make it clear that we will be opening The Skillet when it is ready, it has been a tough week trying to continue to sort things out.

"Can't wait to share it with you all, and I will announce the date of the opening shortly."

Love Island star Mike was discovered hanged in the woods near his North London home amid claims of his battling depression and financial troubles.

His suicide, as well as former Islander Sophie Gradon's suspected suicide last year, has sparked a debate about reality TV show after care.
