Nikki tragically died one day after leaving a private hospital she was entered into after friends and fans raised over £65,000 for her to start life-saving treatment.

Her death has since sparked a full internal inquiry at the hospital after her family said they believe she was "discharged too early."

A spokesperson for Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust told OK! online: "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.
