Big Brother star Nikki Grahame was reportedly found dead just a day after she returned home from hospital. An alleged source close to the family has said they believe the reality star may still be here today if she “wasn’t discharged so soon”.
All information and findings arising from this investigation will be shared confidentially with Miss Grahame’s family
Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust spokeswoman
A source told The Sun: “Those close to Nikki feel she would be alive today if she hadn’t been discharged so soon.
“Her family feel she wasn’t strong enough physically to care for herself. It’s left them shocked and heartbroken.
“It’s an extremely difficult time for them.”
A spokeswoman for Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust told the publication a “full internal investigation into the circumstances of Miss Grahame’s death is currently underway”.
They added the investigation is in line with “standard procedures” after 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,” she added.
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Dorset County Hospital and Nikki for comment.
News of Nikki’s death was announced last Saturday.
Friends of the reality star grew concerned about her health and set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for private treatments.
A statement on the page said her treatment via the NHS had “failed”.
“We have exhausted every avenue possible, and now Nik is unfortunately in a very bad way, this is now our last hope,” they continued.

Nikki’s mum Susan opened up about her daughter’s health on This Morning last month.
She said: “With Covid, it sounds crazy but stuff like gyms closing impacted her.
“In order for her to eat she needs to know she can exercise, so when they closed it was quite a worry, the isolation as well.”
Susan added she had invited her daughter to stay with her, but said she preferred to be in her own place.
Nikki’s friend Duncan James has also since spoken out about his concerns for her health.
Remembering a meeting with her in 2018, he told OK! Magazine: “She looked so thin then. I said, ‘You need to eat. Why are you so thin?’
“And she said, ‘Oh stop nagging me!’ I said, ‘No, you’ve got to start to eat.’ And she said, ‘I’ve been battling this for years’.”
The Big Brother star had been open about her battle with anorexia since finding fame on the show in 2006.
