Pete Bennett has revealed the final text he received from Nikki Grahame.
The Big Brother legend tragically passed away on April 9, after a lifetime battle with anorexia. Her family has since voiced concerns that she was discharged ‘too early’ and an investigation has been launched.
However, Bennett, who dated Grahame in 2006, has revealed the 38-year-old was in ‘good spirits’ before her death.
He told Heat magazine: “She texted me to say, ‘Hey Petie, all good my end.
“‘Starting a clinic on Monday, which is good. And the sun is shining today!’”
Bennett added that he was planning on arranging a message for Grahame from her ‘idol,’ Kate Bush.
He said the pair were singing and dancing along to the singer’s single ‘Babooshka’ when they last met up in March.
Bennett explained: “I was looking to contact Kate Bush to see if she could send Nikki a message as I honestly thought that giving her a boost from her hero would help her start to feel more positive and recover.
“But then we got the news that she was gone. And it was too late.”
Just a day before Grahame passed away at her London home, the reality TV star had reportedly been discharged from hospital.
An investigation has now been launched at Dorset County Hospital, to see if the medical facility followed ‘standard procedures’.
An NHS Foundation Trust spokesperson told The Sun: “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.
“A full internal investigation into the circumstances of Miss Grahame’s death 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, and thereafter with the Coroner as part of any Coronial process.
“The Trust will do everything it can to assist the Coroner in any ongoing Coronial process.”
