Nikki Grahame 'was an angel who was taken too soon' says friend Danielle Lloyd in emotional tribute

DANIELLE Lloyd has paid tribute to tragic Nikki Grahame saying she has been taken “way too early”.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star said she’d been left heartbroken by the 38-year-old’s death.

Danielle, 37, said: “Nikki was sweet, funny and genuine. I’ve got so many memories of you. I’ve been thinking of all the times we spent joking and laughing on nights out or in my flat. 

"It’s a cruel world and you’ve been taken far too early.”

She signed off her message saying her friend was “an angel”.

Hundreds of thousands of messages have already been placed on social media in the wake of the announcement of Nikki’s death.

It was confirmed on Friday night she’d died of complications from anorexia aged just 38.

The former Big Brother contestant had been struggling with the eating disorder for years.

Her family recently started a GoFundMe page asking friends to support the reality star, with her mother even appearing on This Morning earlier this month to discuss her condition.

News of her death was announced on the same GoFundMe page. 

“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,” a statement read.

“It breaks our hearts to know that someone who is so precious was taken from us at such a young age,” it continued. “Nikki not only touched the lives of millions of people, but also her friends and family who will miss her immensely.”

The page’s admin, Leon Dee, asked for “privacy at this difficult time while Nikki’s friends and family process the sad news”.

Nikki appeared on the seventh series of Big Brother, which aired on Channel 4 in 2006. She gained popularity for her frequent temper tantrums and relationship with eventual winner, Pete Bennett.
