In a separate post, the mum-of-two added: “I met Nikki on several occasions and she always had me in stitches, such a character.
“The news is utterly horrid, and I find it terrifying that anorexia and other eating disorders have such power over people.”
She continued: “Sending love to all Nikki’s friend and family at this horrible time.”

The Big Brother star checked into a private hospital to treat her eating disorder last month after her desperate friends managed to raise more than £65,500 to start paying for life-saving care.
However, her passing was confirmed in a statement yesterday on her GoFundMe page.
It read: “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.
“Full details will be released as and when we know them.”
It continued: “All donations have been greatly appreciated and it was heartwarming for everyone including Nikki to see how much she was loved.”
Since then, Nikki’s celebrity friends have rushed to pay their respects to the late star.
