“Remember that fundraising to help her get into an anorexia clinic is in my bio! #savenikkig. “

Pete and Nikki have remained friends throughout the years after enjoying a brief romance following their appearance on Big Brother together in 2006.

Nikki called Pete in his hour of need and he rushed to be by her side.

He told Sky News on camera, “I knew Nikki was sick during the last lockdown, she told me not to tell and she was receiving treatment. But she called me like, ‘Pete, I’m sick, come get me clinic’ and I was busy at the time.

“But then that second lockdown happens and I remember seeing this fundraiser that Carly and Leon had been doing, and I was like ‘my god, she really is a really sick man’, so I was in London. back then and i just got in the cab and went there with my girlfriend who is a mental health nurse, and we just tried to give her so much love and support.

“And because it’s me, and Nikki and I had a great connection, so I thought the love I had could spur her on and get her out of the dark.” This lockdown has been very difficult for people with mental health issues, it really highlighted it. “

Among the tributes, Big Brother star Mikey lamented that Nikki was “treated like a commodity” when he spoke about the late reality TV star.

He told the Daily Record: “Nikki was 28 but behaved like an eight-year-old girl. She wanted to be the center of attention and everyone thought it was hilarious, but ended up crying all night in a fake newspaper room chair.

“I felt so sorry for her. Unfortunately, she was treated like a commodity and paid for it. Nikki wanted the attention and Big Brother gave it to her, but it was brutal.

“It’s really very sad that she left. She definitely made her mark, and there will never be another Nikki Graham again, but I hope people learn from it. “

They may both have found fame on Big Brother on different series, but Mikey and Nikki have crossed paths thanks to their mutual friends.

Generous people all over the UK, including her famous friends, had donated more than £ 65,000 to help fund Nikki’s treatment at a private hospital for anorexia.

His close friends broke the news of his death on his GoFundMe page with a sad note that revealed their hearts were broken by the tragedy.
