Following the death of Nikki Grahame aged 38, in London, earlier this month an official statement was released by her representative.

“Nikki Grahame passed away in the early hours of Friday 9 April 2021. Please respect the privacy of Nikki’s friends and family at this tragic and difficult time.”

Grahame was a contestant on the seventh series of Big Brother in 2006, in which she finished in fifth place. In 2010, she was a runner-up in Ultimate Big Brother. She released two books based on her experience of having anorexia nervosa – 2009’s Dying to Be Thin and Fragile, released in 2012.

Having spent a number of weeks in Dorset County Hospital prior to her death it is normal procedure to hold an internal investigation in these circumstances.

A spokesperson for Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said:

“Staff at the Trust were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Miss Grahame, and our thoughts are with the family and friends of Miss Grahame at this very difficult time.

“A full internal investigation into the circumstances of Miss Grahame’s death is currently underway. This is in line with standard procedures following any sudden death. All information and findings arising from this investigation will be shared confidentially with Miss Grahame’s family, and thereafter with the Coroner as part of any Coronial process.

“The Trust will do everything it can to assist the Coroner in any ongoing Coronial process.”
