Nikki tragically died on Friday after recently being hospitalised to receive special treatment to beat the eating disorder.

Her pal Leon Dee started a GoFundMe after Nikki ‘exhausted every option’ on the NHS – raising over £69,000.

Her mum Sue explained how Nikki was desperate to “get her life back” before she tragically passed.

On This Morning, she said: “I spoke to Nikki this morning and she said, ‘Mum, please stress how overwhelmed I am at people’s kindness towards me. I just don’t get it, but I am so grateful. Also tell everybody that I’m going to try my level best this time to beat this. I want to get my life back’.”

Nikki’s sad death was confirmed online by Leon.

The mourning friend of the TV personality told: “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.

“We would like to request privacy at this difficult time, while Nikki’s friends and family process the sad news.”
