The mother of tragic Big Brother star Nikki Grahame is among campaigners calling for a ban on ‘sick’ fasting apps which encourage weight-loss people to starve themselves.

Impressive young people – many of them struggling with eating disorders – can download some ‘incredibly dangerous’ platforms for free.

This newspaper registered a number of apps and discovered scores of anorexic teenagers using them – some boasting of starving themselves for five days or more.

Sue Grahame, whose daughter Nikki died aged 38 in 2021 after a lifelong battle with anorexia, said the apps should be “scrapped”.

He said: “It’s appalling that these apps even exist. If people need to lose weight, they should see a registered dietitian through their GP.
