At the weekend, Nikki Grahame’s family announced the sad news she had died following a battle with anorexia. Kate Garraway and Adil Ray spoke Nikki’s Big Brother co-star Pete Bennett on Good Morning Britain to discuss his relationship with the late star as he opened up on how they were still in contact in the months leading up to her death.
Pete explained: “I’d seen pictures of her out with Imogen, I knew she was looking thin and she contacted me in the last lockdown saying she had been hospitalised again and she told me not to say anything.
“But she wanted me to come and rescue her or something but I was filming up north at the time and I couldn’t come and see her.”
“She was lonely, she was stuck in north London all by her side,” Pete continued.
“I’m lucky enough to be in Brighton where there’s the beach and people around, she was stuck there all by herself.
