Nikki's eating struggle
13:30 03 October 2006
'Big Brother'star Nikki Grahame is allegedly starving herself to death since being dumped by lover Pete Bennett.
Nikki, 24, battled anorexia for 16 years, and since 'BB'winner Pete ended their whirlwind love affair she is alleged to have stopped eating again.
A close friend of Nikki told Britain's Star magazine: "We're worried. The split knocked her for six. She's so upset at losing Pete that she has lost her appetite.
"She's very stressed and looking increasingly thin. When you're down, you probably don't feel like eating as much. However, Nikki's a small girl anyway, so she can't afford to lose any more weight."
While Nikki's weight plummets Pete, 24, has been flaunting his new girlfriend, Cherry Costain, who has bragged that she and a friend shared a three-in-a-bed romp with the Tourette's sufferer.
Cherry, 21, revealed that she and Michelle Murphy, 24, had sex with Pete five times each in one night.
And to add to Nikki's problems, her former 'Big Brother'housemate Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace has branded her a user.
She said: "I don't think any guy would be able to handle her mood swings. And she disrespected Pete's friends. She's just on an ego trip."
