Sharing a picture of her cuddled up with him, she wrote: “Granda, you were only 67 and healthy. I am in so much shock. Covid is scary and unexpected. I am so sorry. Love you forever.”
She shared a post from her mum, whose dad he was, and added: “The most hurt for you mum, can’t even imagine losing one of my parents, never mind two and I hate that you’re feeling that right now. Everybody is way too young.”
Ellie has spent Christmas on a skiing holiday in France, where she has been posting pictures for her fans.
She shot to fame starring on Love Island 2019 where she got together with millionaire Charlie Brake.
Their relationship fizzled out not long after they left the villa, and the bitter exes had an explosive reunion on Ex on the Beach.
She was later linked to Michael Griffiths and more recently Jack Grealish. Three Lions ace Jack celebrated scoring his first goal for Manchester City by teaming up with the Love Island beauty for a night out.
Jack, 25, and Ellie, 23, were seen chatting at a party in Manchester and later went clubbing together.
Onlookers said at the time that they “seemed really into each other”, but a source close to Ellie told the Sun: “There is nothing between Ellie and Jack. She merely bumped into him outside the event. They have mutual friends.”
He is now back with his childhood sweetheart Sasha Attwood.
