January 6, 2010  Nikki's Hotstar Column in OK! magazine this week - issue 707

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_hotstars_707.jpg

This week Nikki talks on Brittany Murphy's shock death, Dancing on Ice and Chery and Nadine's chart battle....

MY DIARY
I've just come back from a brilliant New Year in Dublin! I had a fantastic time and got to catch up with my friend Michelle Heaton, which was lovely. I also got lots of nice presents for christmas, including a pink electric guiter from my boyfriend, Sam. He's in the band Rogues, and is going to teach me how to play. I got to spend time with his family in Aberystwyth, in Wales, over the holidays and now I'm really looking forward to this year. I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I wish you all the best for 2010!

THE DEATH OF BRITTANY IS A REAL LOSS
I was absolutely devastated to hear about the death of Brittany Murphy. She was one of my favourite actresses and I've loved her since she starred in clueless. She was also fantastic in Girl, Interrupted and Just Married with Ashton Kutcher. I can't believe she's gone. It must be awful for her family. She was so young and still had a lot more to offer the acting world. Rest in peace, Brittany.

CHERYL AND NADINE GO HEAD TO HEAD
Chery Cole and Nadine Coyle are going at loggerheads in the charts this year! Nadine as always been my favourite member of Girls Aloud - I love her accent. She's also got a great team behind her with Robbie Williams' former songwriter Guy Chambers. On the other hand, Cheryl's single 3 Words, is the worst song I've ever heard, so if the rest are like that Nadine will storm it, no problem.

TIME TO GET YOUR SKATES ON FOR DANCING ON ICE!
I'm really looking forward to Dancing On Ice. Kieron Richards from Hollyoaks is so lovely. I hope he does well. I also love Dr Hilary Jones and have had a crush on him for ages! It'll be good to see Sinitta doing something without Simon Cowell for a change. As for Heather Mills, I'll be interested to see how she manages to skate with a false leg, but i think she's too disliked to win the public over.

KERRY NEEDS TO GET HER ACT TOGETHER
If Kerry Katona gets evicted from her house she can always go back to her caravan. Apparently one of Marks's companies is a caravan park so at least they wouldn't be homeless. She may be forced to get a regular job - I'm sure Iceland would have her on the checkout. But I really hope 2010 is a brighter year for her and she can put 2009 behind her.

I'M LOVING...

December 25, 2009  Nikki Grahame in K9 Magazine Issue 31, December 2009

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_Nikki_Grahame_cover.jpg

Nikki joins K9 Magazine in December to talk about what keeps her busy and takes a stroll down the K9 catwalk with her two little Chihuahuas Baby a 3 year old boy and Thumbelina a girl of 19 months. Nikki is in the magazine as part of a celebrity special.

From the article Nikki is asked "tell us a little about how the day starts for Baby and Thumbelina".

"Well, they’re really sociable dogs so their day starts with a walk and then breakfast, although they’re both on strict diets just now. Thumbelina was spayed not too long ago so that’s the main reason for her diet change".

"They always say dogs put weight on once they’ve been neutered so we’re just keeping an eye on her as she’s such a greedy girl; she’ll rush eating her own dinner so she can finish Baby’s".

"Baby’s wide awake in the mornings but I don’t think Thumbelina’s a morning girl really. After their breakfast, they may go back to bed for a while but they always get lots of exercise and we take them for regular walks. We have a huge area nearby where we can take them for a run around. I really think no matter what size of dog you have, you should keep him/her regularly exercised. Some people think being small dogs they don’t need as much exercise, but I disagree; the smells they get from a different environment or social skills they learn, really means a lot to dogs. I think and is really unfair if they don’t get that".

December 24, 2009  Nikki Grahame on Jordan Exposed

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_nikki_grahame_on_jordan_exposed.jpg

Nikki was on Jordan Exposed a programme on Living TV. Nikki was delightful to watch on the show and there are some funny moments such as Nikki explaining why Jordan went out without her wedding ring and not not being able to eat what Jordan ate in the jungle on I'm a Celebrity - and I don't blame her I wouldn't eat a kangaroo's anus either. See Nikki on Jordan Exposed in the video below.






December 16, 2009  Nikki's Hotstars Column in OK! magazine - Issue 705

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_nikki_hs_705.jpg

Nikki's column is back this week and she gives her verdict on this year's X Factor, Suri's crazy shoes and the end of Celebrity Big Brother...

MY DIARY
I went to see Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, which was so funny! The after-party was held at Planet Hollywood, where they gave us lots of great food. I also saw Rock And Roll Lies, a film about Johnny Borrell and Razorlight. They had a Q&A and I was quite starstruck. Last weekend we had a Grahame family get-together at my mum's, and I've also been to the OK! Christmas Party at Alto, so I've been pretty busy!

I'M LOVING...
The Ministry Of Sound DJ Academy. I did a one-day course there and learnt loads, like mixing vinyls and CDs. Visit www.ministryofsound.com/djacademy for info.

SURI IS A FASHIONISTA!
Suri Cruise has been wearing some really sweet outfits lately. While the dresses are really beautiful. I think she should give the high heels a miss. I used to squeeze into heels when I was younger and I got bunions, and I'm sure Tom and Katie don't want that to happen to her. She looks gorgeous, though, and all the little girls love to dress up in nice dresses every now and then.
IT'S A SAD FAREWELL TO CBB
I'll be watching Celebrity Big Brother with a touch of sadness, as it'll probably be the last one ever. If i had my way, I'd get Simon Cowell, Michael McIntyre and Jordan in there! There have been rumours her ex, Alex Reid might be going in, which wouldn't surprise me, and politician Lembit Opik, who I hear will be good value. It'll be hard to watch, but I'm sure the producers will make it go out with a bang.

THIS X FACTOR WASN'T THE BEST
While I've enjoyed this year's X Factor, I don't think it was as good as last year. It seemed to be more about the judges' arguments and Cheryl and Dannii's clothes than the contestants, and I thought Joe was the only one with any real talent. Olly and Stacey were lovely but their voices weren't great. Jedward were obviously a huge part of the show and, annoying as they were, they were pretty entertaining!

I HOPE AMY IS OK
I think it's ridiculous if Amy Winehouse is planning to marry Blake Fielder-Civil again - does she have no memory? It's sad because she's looking really well at the moment. They say love is blind and perhaps Amy just wants to be with someone she's comfortable with at Christmas, rather than trying to find someone new. Maybe they'll prove us all wrong, but I doubt it.

1_nikki_hs_705.jpgElsewhere in the magazine
In Party Pic's Nikki is pictured with Mark Fuller (Embassy Club owner) at the Jonathon Lipman Celebrity Christmas Party at the Alto.

Also in Heat Magazine this week
They had an article about Celebrities turning on the Christmas lights around the country. And to illustrate it there is a picture of Nikki turning on the lights at Biggleswade. See all the Biggleswade Christmas Light pictures in Nikki's gallery.

December 9, 2009  Nikki Grahame is Tinkerbell in LOVE IT! magazine this week

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_nikki_as_tinkerbell_loveit_magazine.jpg

This week in Love It! magazine in a Christmas themed photoshoot Nikki is featured as the Peter Pan character Tinkerbell. In the article Nikki says she is a child at heart and identifies with Peter Pan as the child that never wants to grow up, she also talks about Christmas and tells us what her highlights were this year and what she wants for next year.

"I love that Peter Pan never wants to grow up and I can identify with that. I'm a child at heart and I don't think I even know how to become an adult. I've seen Hook at least 10 times and I'd love to be Tinkerbell. she has fairy dust that helps her fly - if I could do the same I'd go to Australia as I've always wanted to go. I don't like aeroplanes and the thought of being on one for 24 hours puts me off.

I love Christmas. I never go out on Christmas Eve because I don't want to ruin the next day by being hungover. I'll spend the day at my sister's house, then a few of us are going to Dublin to see in the New Year.

The worst thing I ever received for Christmas was a piece of jewellery my dad bought me from a market stall. It was in a Tiffany pouch but when I opened it, inside was a crusty old brooch in the shape of a cross, Yuck!

The best present I ever had was when I was four and I got a beautiful doll's pram. I felt so grown up with it, tottering around in my mum's heels.

I've had a brilliant time in 2009. I did a play at the Edinburgh Festival and my autobiography came out. It was very hard to dredge up old memories but it was something I wanted to do. It's out in six countries and I get a lot of feedback from other people with eating disorders who say it has helped them.

In 2010, I'd like to open my own drop-in centre for people to come in and get advice and help with their eating disorders and speak frankly about them. I'm also doing some DJ'ing work for hospital radio. I'd love to do more and give Chris Moyles a run for his money!"

December 9, 2009  Nikki Grahame in Osteoporosis News - Winter 2009

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_nikki_ost_news1.jpg

This month in Osteoporosis News Winter 2009 edition Nikki appears on the front cover and in a 2 page spread. Osteoporosis News is the magazine of the National Osteoporosis Society and is free to members.

Since appearing on Big Brother Nikki has spoken openly about her 11-year battle with anorexia, and her subsequent diagnosis with osteoporosis. Siobhan Hallmark talks to her about her past, present and future.

In most ways Nikki Grahame is like any other 27-year-old in the glare of the public eye. Pretty, bright and bubbly and devoting her time to promoting her autobiography Dying to be Thin, Nikki's busy life heads along in a whirl of TV show appearances, openings and parties.

But in other ways, life for Nikki is very different, mainly because she's living with osteoporosis and is constantly aware of the risk of fracturing bones....


Nikki Grahame in Osteoporosis News Winter 2009


Nikki has a sobering message for any young people thinking that it’s more important to be thin than healthy:

"You should think about the long-term damage that you're doing. There is a lot of pressure nowadays to be size zero, but the damage you're doing is irreparable. It really is such a huge deal."

"You can't take back what you’ve done to your bones and your internal organs; you can put weight back on but you may never reverse the damage you’ve done to your bones."

December 7, 2009  Nikki Grahame attends a charity screening of Alvin & The Chipmunks 2

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_nikki_alvin_premier3.jpg

Nikki attended a charity screening of Alvin and The Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel in aid of The Teenage Cancer Trust at Odeon West End on December 5, 2009 in London, England. Nikki was interviewed by Aleesha Hansel, camera Russell Nelson from Leicester Square TV.

In the interview Nikki talks about the films she has seen. And about her DJing work particularly for Radio Lollipop at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and at some of the clubs. She is also asked what she wants for christmas and what cartoon character she would like to be, it is a very delightful and entertaining interview.

by Nikki Grahame

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and looking forward to christmas!.. I have already got my tree and decorations up!!

Anyway just wanted to let you all know that recently I took part in a DJ'ing course at the Ministry of Sound. It was a full day course learning how to DJ with vinal, cd's mixing and all different types of technique! It was a really fun day and I enjoyed being behind the decks as music is so important to me.

Since the course I have done a few sets at various pubs and bars, such as Proud Gallery, The Trinity, and the Lexington!

The type of music I like to play is Indie Rock, such as - The Libertines, The Strokes, Mystery Jets, Kasabian, Kings of Leon, Florence and The Machine, The Clash, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, The cure, Blondie, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Supergrass, Kate Bush etc.

I am hoping to do lots of gigs next year, so I will let you all know where I'll be, and hopefully I'll see you there :-)

Take care and have a lovely christmas.

November 21, 2009  Nikki on Pants Off Dance Off

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_nikki_grahame_pants_off_dance_off_2.jpg

Nikki was funny on Pants Off, Dance Off! Each celeb had a mystery object to start their dance routine and Nikki's object was a space hopper and angel wings. She danced to the heavenly sounds of La Roux's "I'm Not Your Toy."

While Nikki was dancing she appeared in a window chatting.

Nikki : "When I dance I kinda forget about what I look like really - if you put a good song on I can pretty much go away with the fairies."

Nikki : "If I can own any celebrities pants, it would have to be Luke Pritchard, he is the front man in the Kooks, and he is hot!"

Nikki : "Earlier this year I went to the Isle of Wight Festival with my friend Natalie Cassidy and I forgot to bring any knickers at all, none. So I had to wear Natalie's. I tied them in knots at the side and wear them inside out - fortunately I didn't pull" Nikki laughs out loud and giggles.

November 18, 2009  Nikki 's Hotstars Column in OK! Magazine - Issue 701

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_hot_stars_701.jpg

This week Nikki talks about the Jedward controversy, Denise's baby news and Strictly's newest romance....

MY DIARY
I've been in terrible pain recently with a kidney stone. It's made me really miserable, but I'm going to hospital for treatment soon so hopefully I'll feel much better after that. On a brighter note, I'm taking part in a charity event for Children In Need next week. It's a ghost hunt in Darlington - we'll be visiting a haunted theatre and using a Ouija board. I can't wait! Last week I did my first DJ set at Trinity in Harrow. It was great fun and I'm trying to get some more gigs because I enjoyed it so much.

IT'LL BE INTERESTING IN THE JUNGLE!
I'm loving the new series of I'm A Celebrity.... Get Me Out Of Here! I was so excited when I heard Jordan was going in. She's always honest and just says what she thinks. It seems like quite a dull line-up this year and it might need a bit of livening up. I don't know if she'd be able to win it, though - the viewers might want to give someone else a chance this time. Meanwhile, I'm sure Peter will be happy that he can spend more time with their children.

CONGRATULATIONS TO DENISE AND LEE
I'm so happy for Denise Van Outen and Lee Mead, who are expecting their first baby. They have proved wrong everyone who said they wouldn't last, and I think they'll make great parents. it doesn't matter that Denise is a few years older than Lee as he's clearly smitten with her. They don't court publicity and I can see them being a very normal, down-to-earth family. Congratulations to them both!

THE X FACTOR IS BECOMING A FARCE
Well this year's X Factor certainly is shaping up to be the most controversial ever! I think Simon Cowell must be loving the fuss, although I hear lots of people have boycotted the show since the "deadlock" issue over Jedward. I think the show has lost some credibility and this series seems to be more about the judges than the actual singers. I really hope it picks up soon.

STRICTLY IS LIKE TV DATING!
It seems like everyone on Strictly Come Dancing is getting together! Ricky Whittle is so hot - it'll be no surprise if his partner Natalie Lowe has fallen for him. I do feel sorry for his ex, Charley Stenson, as she's a lovely girl with a great personality. She's gorgeous though and will find someone else. She could go on the show next year and bag a sexy dancer herself!

I'M LOVING....
The Dental Design Studio in Northwood, Middlesex. They took my painful wisdom tooth out in minutes and were absolutely brilliant. They were a really friendly team who had me at ease and also do other treatments such as Botox. See www.thedentaldesignstudio.co.uk for details.

November 4, 2009  Nikki 's Hotstars Column in OK! Magazine - Issue 699

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_nikki_hs_699.jpg

This week Nikki talks openly about the X Factor, Jordan and Michael Jackson...

MY DIARY
I've been doing a lot of charity stuff recently. I've been DJing at Radio Lollipop at Great Ormand Street Hospital For Children, and I'm really enjoying it. Last week I was a waitress at an event for the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund with some other celebrities, which was fun! This week, I'm going to see a psychic. I go to see two women called Destiny Rising. They do clairvoyant readings and use tarot cards. I see them at least once a month - they're amazing.

I'M TOTALLY HOOKED ON THE X FACTOR
I'm completely addicted to the X Factor and I watch it religiously. I didn't like Jamie Archer in the beginning, but he's really growing on me. I'm gutted Miss Frank left last month - I really liked them. But I think the rapping ruined it. I'm also so fed up with Lucie Jones. I think she's bland and boring - I'd rather watch paint dry then listen to her!

AMY LOOKS GREAT
It was nice to see Amy Winehouse looking well at the Q Awards last week. She looks far better then she did this time last year. She's put on some weight and looks quite glam. | heard that she's back with Blake Fielder-Civil. I think that if Blake is back on the scene, it can only be a downward spiral. It was lovely seeing Amy with her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield though - I think she should focus on her instead.

FEELING SORRY FOR JORDAN!
I feel bad for Jordan after her friend Michelle Clack slagged her off in the newspapers - it's such a nasty thing to do. The pair have been good pals for the last 15 years and Michelle was one of Jordan's bridesmaid when she married Peter Andre. How can she suddenly switch and go to Pete's side? I don't know what actually happened, but it still doesn't seem fair.

LOOKING FORWARD TO "THIS IS IT"!
I can't wait to see Michael Jackson's "This Is It". Looking at all the pics from last week's premiere made me so excited. I know I'll probably cry when I see it! I think everyone will - he was such a legend. I'd planned to see him at The O2 arena in London, and I'm still so sad about his death.

I'M LOVING...
Pasaje Del Terror - it's a new attraction at London Trocadero and it's amazing! You watch a film and then you are challenged to walk through it, and there are live figures jumping out from old horror movies, such as Freddy Krueger and the girl from The Exorcist. It's all dark and scary!

October 28, 2009  Nikki Grahame to Waitress at the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund-Celebrity evening

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_Nikki_body_gossip_2.jpg

Nikki will be a waitress at The Meat & Wine Co in Westfield London.

October 22, 2009  Nikki Grahame's book 'Dying to be Thin' published in Holland.

1_book_holland2.jpgNikki's book is being published in The Netherlands by "The House of Books" and will be released in November as a paperback. The title is "Dodelijk dun" (Fatal thin) with a new cover picture. Nikki is being interviewed today by Dutch journalists from various magazines from The Netherlands.

Nikki has worked hard writing her book, raising awareness of anorexia suffers on TV, Radio, media and on the stage show Body Gossip. She is also planning to open her drop in centre for anorexia suffers in january which will run on a monthly basis. Well done Nikki!

And it's very fitting that Nikki the Big Brother reality star have her book published at the home of Big Brother.

October 22, 2009  Nikki Grahame interview on BBC World Service

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_wk6_basildon_4.jpg

No Hot Stars column this week but Nikki does talk to BBC's Dan Damon. "So what is it like to live after reality TV? Do most reality TV contestants crave the limelight once they get a taste of it?". You might recall a hoax recently with a hot air balloon and a 6 year old child in the USA. A couple craving fame planned the hoax after they appeared on a reality TV show.

The interview with Nikki Grahame and Nick Bateman on chasing fame: how reality TV can be addictive aired on monday 19th October on the BBC World Service. Listen to the interview below.

October 14, 2009  Nikki 's Hotstars Column in OK! Magazine - Issue 696

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_hs_696.jpg

This week Hot Stars is back and Nikki Talks about Matt's agony, Lindsay's problems, and Russell and Katy's budding romance...

MY DIARY
I was having terrible pain with my wisdom tooth last week and will probably have to have it out this week, which I'm not looking forward to! On a brighter note, I went to see Mercury Prize winner Speech Debelle sing at Scala in Kings Cross and she was fantastic! Last weekend I went to Hull for the BBC Headroom event in support of World Mental Health Day and did a talk. I've also been to Great Ormond Street Hospital where I got to meet the children and be a DJ for Radio Lollipop.

LINDSAY NEEDS SUPPORT AND A REST
Reports say that Lindsay Lohan's dad Michael has claimed she is addicted to prescription drugs, which I don't think is a very helpful thing to say. If what is being claimed is true, she's clearly going through a rough time and your dad is supposed to support you, not tell everyone about your problems. I think Lindsay can get back to her movie-making days, but if reports are right, she needs to take some time out.

SO SAD FOR MATT
I was so upset to hear about the death of Matt Lucas' ex-husband, Kevin McGee. About three years ago I met them both at a restaurant and they were such lovely guys. I can't even imagine what Matt must be going through, It's so awful. I'm glad he has good friends like David Walliams to comfort him. I'm sending a big cuddle Matt's way.

THE X FACTOR'S GETTING SERIOUS
I'm loving the X Factor live finals and stayed in on Saturday night just to watch. I really think Stacey Solomon has a chance of winning - she has a great voice and seems sweet and likeable. Although it must be pretty scary to perform in front of a live audience, I think this year the contestants had an advantage as they'd already done it at the auditions stage, so it was probably not quite as frightening as it would have been last year.

RUSSELL AND KATY ARE A GOOD MATCH!
I wasn't surprised when I heard Russell Brand and Katy Perry had got together - they are both quite quirky! Russell seems to be able to get any woman he wants with that charm of his. Katy seems besotted by him and I think they make a good couple, although I'm sure feisty Katy won't stand for any nonsense! I can't see them planning marriage or children any time soon, but I'd like to see it work for them.

I'M LOVING...
Too Faced Lash Injection mascara. It's really easy to use and is so effective at volumising your lashes - I love it!
