Curtis Pritchard has announced his and brother AJ's grandmother has sadly died.

The former Love Islander took to his Instagram feed to share the heartbreaking news with his 1.4million followers.

Sharing a snap of himself posing with his late grandma, he explained that his brother AJ, 26, will not find out about his tragic loss until after he's out of Gwrych castle as he competes on I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

Referring to his professional dancer brother in a lengthy statement, he wrote: "It is following our grandad's wishes that myself and AJ are to carry on with the current projects we are committed to.

"Grandad said to myself and AJ that it would break his heart for us to stop what we were doing as Nanna had such pride in our work.

"AJ therefore discussed with the family before entering the castle that if something did happen to Nanna whilst he was away, that he wouldn't want to be told until he left the castle and that in her honour he would complete his commitment to the show, with a view to doing her and the family proud.

"As Grandad and Nanna would have wished for, AJ will stay in the castle and continue making her proud wherever she is watching from."
