Her illness of anorexia was well documented, and she also released a book regarding her eating disorder. Last month a fundraising page was set up urging fans to donate for her recovery. And, it immediately raises over  £65,000.

The page reported the blonde beauty was having a bad way and required treatment in a rehabilitation center. Seven Big Brother alums, including former winner Ryan Clark-Neal, appealed for donations.
