‘Very sorry to hear of his passing. Prayers for peace to you and your family during this difficult time,’ another added.
Christopher’s death comes after he posted a photo of his bruised and wounded face following his most recent cosmetic surgery.
In one Instagram image, one eye had a stitched-up cut on the eyelid and just below it, while the other had bloody scars going down the side of his nose and face.
The Celebrity Big Brother star wrote: ‘Think I’ve gone to far! Need a hug xx.’
According to the NHS, body dysmorphia is a mental health problem in which a person spends a lot of time worrying about defects in their appearance that are frequently unnoticed to others.
His post was showered in support, with one person writing: ‘Chris, you really do not need to do this to your beautiful self. Please stop. Sending hugs. Love you lots xx.’
Another said: ‘Chris! Please please stop doing this to yourself. You are thoroughly beautiful inside and out. You really don’t need to do this to yourself x.’
Someone else penned: ‘Mental health is hard and it is easy for others to judge, I hope you’re okay and you get the right support you need.’
