Michelle Heaton was 'too scared' to see pal Nikki Grahame during her final days


Michelle Heaton said she was “too scared” to see Nikki Grahame during her final days in a candid tribute.

The LibertyX singer apologises to Nikki, 38, who died on Friday, explaining she was afraid to “trigger” her pal who suffered from anorexia since childhood.

She goes on to talk about the wonderful memories she has of their time together, including rummaging around on the floor for award show goody bags and their love of fake tan.

In her post the mum of two writes: “Dear Nikki , I’m so sorry I didn’t come. I was scared to see you .. to say anything that may be a trigger to loose you.. I was a coward and I’m so sorry.



Michelle paid tribute to her friend Nikki

“I just listened to our voices notes, our messages, and the phone calls over the last few weeks .. I think I knew, and I was too weak to know.

“Your last one, telling us you saw me on @lorraine & wished us all better and to call you. YOU thought of us even when on that day you were where you were! Most my “so called friends” didn’t even contact us.

“Nikki, I have so many memories, most I can’t not repeat The holidays, the events, Ireland Marbella. I just came across this one,. Think it was the world music awards.. we went as a couple lol! (Coz we were not as famous as the others to get plus 1’s).

“hand on hip! wayyy to much fake tan.. pale lips thinking we look amazing. Held our breath every time we had a picture coz we wanted to “look good” then landed in the press comparing us to trash… as they do!



Michelle’s post was searingly honest

“But we didn’t care! Coz there was a FREE bar! Mini fish and chips going around! Smoked salmon on soggy crisp bread with crusty bits of wasabi (first time either of us had had smoked salmon)

“Michael Jackson was on stage and we just went looking for the goody bags under every ones chair.”

And she ends on a poignant note, addressing Nikki’s anorexia battle.

She writes: “For the people who laughed, labelled, disregarded her coz “they” knew what she needed like “eat a sandwich.” .. are probably the same ones being “praised with their wonderful public posts” Feel better guys?

“Who Is she… who is she… She is Nikki Grahame.”



Michelle also shared hilarious memories

The Big Brother star passed away on Friday and her sad death was confirmed online by her close pal Leon Dee.

The mourning friend of the TV personality told: “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.

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

“We would like to request privacy at this difficult time, while Nikki’s friends and family process the sad news.
