Maria had shared images of her battle with the eating disorder during her final difficult years, and tried to warn people of the dangers.

In June, she posted a photo of her in the gym appearing skeleton-thin.

She said in a heartbreaking message: “No, I don’t take this picture because I’m proud of my appearance.

“And no, I am also not posting it because I want to motivate others to look like me.

“In fact yes, the reason I am posting this picture is because I am on a journey and I want you to join me.

“I want to share my thoughts, and show that I am actively fighting anorexia.

“I also want to say, that we should not hide ourselves away no matter what psychological illnesses we have.”

She wrote of her difficulties in battling the disorder
