Nikki Grahame has vowed to beat anorexia in her first message to fans since a Go Fund Me page was set up to help her get treatment.
The 38 year old has battled with the eating disorder since she was just seven years old, but is currently "the worst" her friends and family have seen her.
Friends set up a fundraising page in the hope of raising £50,000 to get the Big Brother legend treatment to help her beat the condition, with it going on to raise over £65,000.
Nikki's mum Susan took to Tuesday's This Morning to discuss her battle, and sent a message to fans from the reality star.
She told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: "I spoke to Nikki this morning and she said, 'Mum, please stress how overwhelmed I am at people's kindness towards me'.
"'I just don't get it, but I am so grateful,' and she said, 'Also tell everybody that I'm going to try my level best this time to beat this. I want to get my life back'."
Susan has previously opened up on her daughter's battle, telling The Telegraph last week: "We've been on this road a long time – 30 years on and off, and I've never seen her this bad.
"I'm frightened that I'll die and she'll have no one to support her. I don't want her to go through any of this alone.
"While there's breath in my body, and while Nikki is struggling, I don't know how to do anything else other than help her."
Nikki's mum went on to share that the first UK lockdown in 2020 affected her daughter and her latest setback is the result of "terminal loneliness".
Her friends, who set up the fundraising page, told The Sun: "On hitting the Go Fund Me target last weekend those close to her started the long, and at times difficult, though always productive process of finding Nikki the best possible facility and care she requires.
"Due to the incredible donations received we're pleased to report that a private facility which is able to admit her has been found and her road to recovery will begin from Monday."
Nikki's loved-ones said the television personality wanted to thank everyone for their donations and well-wishes.
They continued: "Nikki would like to thank each and every single person for their kind and generous donations.
"She has seen the wonderful messages and wishes pouring in both personally and through her Go Fund Me page and has nothing but gratitude."
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
