Nikki Grahame's GoFundMe page has been reactivated following her tragic death to help cover costs for her funeral.

The Big Brother icon sadly passed away at the age of 38 on Friday following a three decade long battle with anorexia.

A fundraising page was set up for Nikki by friends last month, raising over £65,000 in just days to help pay for her to enter a facility treatment as she vowed to beat the eating disorder once and for all.

However, over the weekend, a devastating message confirming the reality TV legend's sad passing was posted on the page by the pals who set it up.

They have now added a further update, announcing that donations are once again welcome as they prepare to plan the star's funeral.

Carly Cunningham, Nikki's friend who arranged the initial fundraiser, wrote: "We just wanted to let you know that we are turning donations back on for anyone that would like to make a donation in Nikki's memory, as lots of people have been asking if they can still donate.

"An amount will be used for the funeral costs and the remaining funds will be used to go towards an organisation that helps those suffering with eating disorders.

"The crucial funding that has been lacking to help people in these awful situations has not been addressed, we will use this money to the best of our ability to try and and stem this horrific, debilitating illness.

"We also would like to thank people who have sent private messages with lovely words about Nikki, she would be so thankful."

Since her death, it has emerged that Nikki told friends she was "all good" in a heartbreaking final Facebook post.

She reportedly shared a post on the social media platform weeks before entering the specialist clinic to receive treatment for her severe anorexia.

According to The Sun Online, she shared an image of a vase with a bouquet of pink roses resting on a table in her home, which she captioned: "Thank you for the beautiful flowers."

After a friend replied to the snap by asking how she was doing, Nikki allegedly replied: "All good darling".

Nikki's final interview, filmed just 10 weeks before her tragic death, has also been unearthed, in which she poignantly said: "Life's so short."

Catching up with her Big Brother housemates in a virtual reunion hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal, she said: "I'm really close with Imogen [Thomas], actually. We're like, complete opposites. I didn't speak to Imogen for years. We hated each other.

"But, you know, I saw her at an event, and I just thought life's so short, you know? We made up, we became friends, and that was that."
