January 26, 2017 Nikki Grahame's Star Magazine blog
Be sure to get Star Magazine this week for Nikki's Celebrity Big Brother Column. She loves Jedward and thinks Kim is the best person in the house ever even though she has lost the plot. So what else does she have to say here is a sneek peek:-
Get Jamie out Jamie annoys me he picks on people as weak like Jedward and Kim, and shouts his mouth off. I feel sorry for Bianca, because Jasmie has been through every girl in the house...
Catfights I am surprised that Calum didn't climb over the wall when Stacy, Jessica and Chloe were fighting over him. The fact that Chloe thinks she stands a chance with him is comedy in itself...
Gentle James I am glad James C was saved. I think it gave him the boost that was needed, but I hope it hasn't made him over confident. I can't believe he refused to wear the super hero outfit in the task, meaning the hot water got turned off. Tutt, tutt don't let us down James.
Leave my boys alone Jedward have been given a hard time from the time they entered. I am not sure why everyone has it in for them? Even Speidi have turned on them now... Save my Boys!
January 18, 2017 Nikki's Celebrity Big Brother Column in Star Magazine.
Don't miss Nikki's exclusive Celebrity Big Brother column in Star Magazine out now. Nikki gives her take on the goings on in the house. Here is some of what she had to say:
Cheer Up, Col - I don't think Coleen is fake as everyone has been saying, but she needs to brighten up a little bit. All she does is moan! She is clearly struggling...
Nicola's free pass- As Nicola said, her husband has cheated on her so she has a free card to do what she wants. I'd absolutely love to see her get it on with Jamie - it would be so entertaining...
I'm a Jedhead! - I love Jedward - they're such rays of sunshine. They're just being themselves and that is exactly what we love...
Walkout woes - I'm upset that Brandon has gone. My eyes welled up when I watched his exit. I just felt so sad when he said he couldn't be himself in there. And I'm very disappointed about Ray J. He's been exposed to the outside world, so it wouldn't be fair to let him back in. But to be quite honest, I don't think anyone in there is going to notice he's gone because all he did was sleep!

January 11, 2017 Nikki Grahame's new CBB Column in Star Magazine
Catch all the gossip on this years housemates in Nikki's first Celebrity Big Brother 19 column out now in Star Magazine. Nikki shares some insider gossip as she has met all the celebs before they went into the house for CBB Bit on the Side.
Blossoming Romance - Jasmin will get with Calum, without a doubt. We'll see some action there. They will have to do the whole shagging in the bathroom with the bathroom thing!
Stacey is the underdog - Stacey is annoying, but as the weeks go on, I think she is going to become really popular because she is going to lose her shit. She is already struggling!
Team Speidi - Heidi and Spencer are my ultimate celebrity housemates. They're TV gold! They have been honest about the fact they're in it to win it and I'd love it if they did. They were so nice to me - but probably because I was stroking their egos! I think Austin will use them for drama so he can get more screen time.
Team Danielle - I am friends with Danielle Lloyd and I think she is within her rights to tell her ex, Jamie not to talk about her in the house. I can understand why she wants to keep out of it. She is happy with her fiance, so it's all in the past.
What a whopper! - Ray J is brilliant, but I don't think his ex Kim Kardashian should be worried. She has got way more things to be thinking about. I'm sure she loves the drama of it all anyway. I watched it (sex video) five minutes before I met him and I could keep a straight face. I haven't watched porn but it was so explicit. He's hugh! Pete Bennett was known for being big but, gosh, Ray J is another level.
Catch Nikki's column in Star Magazine each week during Celebrity Big Brother 19.
Nikki will join Rylan tonight on the panel of Celebrity Big Brothers Bit on the Side 10pm Ch5 and 11pm on Ch5+1. I am sure she will have a lot more to say on the celebrity housemates, don't miss it!

April 30, 2016 Nikki Grahame is evicted from the Big Brother Canada House to a Standing Ovation.
After 58 day's in the Big Brother House Nikki was sadly evicted during a double eviction. She was met by a standing ovation and rapturous applause from the audience.
After surviving the first eviction against Jared she was renominated in the 2nd eviction with Tim by the brothers Nick and Phil who became the new Head of House. Cassandra winning the veto saved Tim and after a moment of indecision by the brothers wanting to nominate themselves chose Joel as the replacement nomination.
Nikki knew she was going when she was up with Joel on the block. She was evicted by a vote of 3-0 and was gobsmacked with Tim not throwing his vote behind her which is why she never hugged anyone on the way out.
Arisa opening the interview: "Nikki, Happy Birthday! I know its rough being evicted on your birthday but I know you will party tonight at the jury house. There might be some vodka there!"
Arisa: "You saw what the brothers did they try to put themselves on the block, we have never seen anything like that did that shock you?"
Nikki: "Oh Arisa, they had no intention (laughs), come on!"
Arisa: "You didn't believe it, you didn't buy it for one second, ?"
Nikki: "Not for one minute, as if!"
Arisa: "Now I know you said Joel is your winner in there. What do you think his chances are now you are not there?"
Nikki: "I think Joel has kept his loyalties to everyone in that house and he is the most deserving winner as far as I am concerned left in there."
Nikki: "I am astounded by Tim. I am, that's why I couldn't hug anyone. I was so gobsmacked by Tim, I was just like, Oh my god get me out of here. I can't believe it!"
Arisa: "Wow, Well Nikki I just want to say you have been so incredibly entertaining to watch we absolutely loved having you. You had the highs and the lows in the house what is some of the best memories you will take back with you to the UK."
Nikki: "Oh my god, the puppies and the kangaroo."
Arisa: "I love it! Nikki you have been nothing if not a wild card."
Later on the Sideshow during an ad break former winner and BBCAN alumini Peter Brown said on his twitter that the audience sang Happy Birthday to Nikki.

April 27, 2016 Nikki's Wedding Nomination on Big Brother 4 Canada
Nikki has been nominated for the first time on Big Brother Canada 4 with under three weeks to go until the finale. This is Nikki's 8th week in the house and it has taken until now for Nikki to be nominated. She has played a good social game as only Nikki can and that is to just be herself. Nikki is now getting the full Big Brother Canada experience and is on the block and faces eviction on thursday during a double eviction.
Nikki hilariously found out about the plan while she was dressed in a bridal gown as part of a task that saw her get "married" to Joel. "You are not going home this week," insisted Cassandra. "Don't stress about it. I wouldn't put you up if I thought you had any chance of going." Needless to say, Nikki wasn't pleased. "I don't want to have to go backwards and forwards and plead my case," she moaned. "I've been forced in to this, it's a black cloud over my wedding day!"
At the nominations ceremony, Cass confirmed she was putting Nikki on the block against Nick and Phil, telling the brothers: "You have escaped eviction every single week and it's time to change that."
