Paramedics tried to revive the 18-year-old using CPR but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

It was reported she had gone out with friends the night before she died.

Rachel Clacher, Josie’s mother, co-founded the telephone answering company Moneypenny, which is said to be worth more than £100m.

Mrs Clacher had been staying at the villa with her daughter when she died.

The entrepreneur was appointed a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List earlier this year for services to business and her charity work.

She established the Moneypenny Foundation – now known as WeMindTheGap – in 2014 to offer holistic paid traineeships to unemployed and disadvantaged young people.
