Big Brother’s Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace sparks concern after Nikki Grahame’s death

Big Brother favourite Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace has sparked concern amongst fans following the death of her close friend Nikki Grahame.

The 42-year-old reality star recently took to social media to tell her followers that she was "self medicating" with alcohol flowing the loss of her former BB housemate.

Nikki tragically passed away at the age of 38 on April 9 following a long battle with anorexia.

Taking to her Instagram Story, Aisleyne penned: "I been doing what I always do when someone I love dies… drinking.

"That's self medicating. I'm my own worst enemy. Gym will save me. Not f*** gin!"

She wrote on the next slide: "Aww me and Nikki loved both haha… just brought back lots of sweet memories thinking that…

"Thank u for the memories darling I love you."

Aisleyne met Nikki on the seventh series of Big Brother back in 2006.

She was one of the first people to pay tribute to Nikki following the sad news of her death.

The cause of death has been confirmed as anorexia as a hospital investigation examining the events before she died continues.

Nikki's heartbroken mum Susan had spoken about her daughter's battle with the eating disorder when she appeared on This Morning just before her daughter's passing.

As a result of Nikki's death being due to natural causes an inquest won't need to take place.

However, Daily Star can confirm that Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will continue to examine the events surrounding her death.

Nikki was admitted to Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester in March after suffering a serious fall.

She reportedly fractured her lower spine in the accident which happened as she stopped to visit a pharmacy on the way to her mum's Dorset home.

Nikki was then transferred to a short-stay acute ward for three weeks before being discharged on April 8.

It has been reported that Nikki's family believe she was discharged too early and they wanted doctors to keep her under 24/7 medical attention over fears about her plummeting weight.

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.

"A full internal investigation into the care Miss Grahame received 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."
