Big Brother star Nikki Grahame has died aged 38 following a battle with Anorexia.
Nikki Grahame had struggled with anorexia for years and her family recently started a Go Fund Me page to try and get more support for the star.
The devastating news of her passing was announced in a statement that read, “It is with great sadness, we have to let you know that our dear friend Nikki passed away in the early hours of Friday 9th April.
“It breaks our hearts to know that someone who is so precious was taken from us at such a young age. Nikki not only touched the lives of millions of people, but also her friends and family who will miss her immensely.”
Nikki Grahame received the love of the nation when she appeared on Big Brother’s seventh series in 2006.
Thanks to her love affair with fellow star Pete Bennett and her emotional reactions to the events in the Big Brother house, Nikki won the heart of viewers and was quickly brought back in when she was voted out.
Ms Grahame subsequently appeared in further series’ of Big Brother as well as her own show Princess Nikki and later Celebrity Coach Trip, Pointless Celebrities, In Therapy and Big Brother Canada.
Our thoughts are with Nikki Grahame’s friends and family.
