It has been confirmed that Nikki will enter the Big Brother House tonight on the #BBTimeWarp show. Emma Willis recently revealed that there will be a fake eviction tonight, with the evicted housemate moving into a secret room to be joined by a housemate from a previous series.

It has also been revealed by Rylan Clark who was on the "This Morning" show today that Nikki will enter the house with last years winner Helen Wood, a 3rd housemate remaining secret until tonight.

Nikki has been dropping a few hints all week on twitter and media releases made it fairly obvious that Nikki will be one of the legendary housemates.

Yesterday Nikki had returned from Paris where she had been having a gap year working in a cafe. After this stint on Big brother she will be moving back to London in her new apartment. Nikki will enter the time bomb bunker tonight and move into the house on sunday during the launch of Time Warp week until next friday and will exit during the eviction show.

Nikki recently gave an interview on Fubar radio Hot Gossip Show, Nikki said she was backing Jack "Pie Face" McDermott to win this year's series. But in her interview with digital spy she has said "He was my favourite. And then he got too confident and cocky and bolshy, so I'm hoping he's going to turn it round and I'll come out liking him."

Listen to her interview on Fubar Radio Hot Gossip Show here. Nikki talks about her time on Big Brother, the time warp twist and what she is currently up to.

December 24, 2012  Nikki is spending Christmas in Liverpool, with the magic of panto as fairy god mother

Nikki Grahame picture - _200_nikki_grahame_christmas.jpg

Nikki is spending Christmas in Liverpool as fairy Godmother in Cinderella. With great reviews with the panto Cinderella at the Epstein theatre. Nikki is a Beatles Fan and is enjoying her time in Liverpool making new friends and the family are coming to see her in Cinderella, her mum, sister and nepthew Sunny. But she'll be staying in Liverpool for the big day itself and as a Beatles fan she's looking forward to exploring the city.

Here is what Liverpool Echo had to say on the website:

SHE wielded a hairdryer and scissors in Celebrity Salon – despite breaking an arm on a night out while filming the TV show in Ireland.

And now, arm fully functioning again, Nikki Grahame (pictured) is the proud possessor of a magic wand in Cinderella, currently at the Epstein Theatre.

"I do all the fun bits," she says of her role as Fairy Godmother in the theatre's inaugural festive production since it was refurbished and renamed (as the Neptune of course it had a long tradition of panto).

"I played Princess Jasmine in Aladdin at Kettering the year before last, and last year I did Cinderella – again I was Fairy Godmother so I know the part well."

The 30-year-old arrived in the public arena as a contestant on Big Brother back in 2006, and later she was runner up in Ultimate Big Brother as well as having her own TV show, Princess Nikki.

But don't assume the reality TV star, who published an autobiographical book Fragile – writing candidly about her battles with anorexia – earlier this year, doesn't know her way around a stage.....

If you are in Liverpool why not catch up with Nikki at the Epstein Theatre, the panto runs until January 6th.

June 15, 2012  Nikki Grahame on Bit on the Side

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_200_nikki_grahame_bbbots_light_switch.jpg

Nikki was on the panel on Big Brothers Bit on the Side last tuesday night (12th June) with guests Justin Lee Collins and Jessica-Jane Clement.

Nikki is not fond of Chris and wants him out this week, she got all embarassed when Emma asked her if she fancied Arron and she eventually admitted of course!

Nikki was asked if she would have liked to have been able to discuss nominations as this years housemates can. Nikki said she wouldn't of liked to have been able to discuss nominations as she was paranoid enough in the house! Justin-Lee Collins said he would of loved to see nominations discussions in Nikki's year. It certainly would have been interesting given how paranoid the house was and especially Nikki's reaction to being nominated by Suzy which led to her famous catchcry "Who is she".

Nikki had some fun with a gag involving a light switch, for anyone who didn't see the highlight show beforehand - Arron wanted to go to sleep but everytime he turned the lights out Big Brother turned them back on again!

Watch the Video below for the two panel sessions Nikki was in, runs approx. 19 mins 30 secs.

May 17, 2012  Nikki Grahame in OK! Magazine this week.

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_150_OKMay222012A.jpg

This week Nikki talks to OK! magazine (5 page spread) about her lifelong battle with Anorexia. In the magazine photoshoot they have dolled her up as the 60's idol Twiggy, in a 30th birthday party style shoot.

Happy Birthday, Nikki!
I've just had my 30th. It didn't feel the best. I think I am starting to be a bit more grown up. My mum has moved away to Dorset so I'm having to be a bit more responsible these days. I really miss her - she used to help me with my accounts and all my money stuff and mortgages and things like that. In ten years I'd like to be rich, living in Paris with a hot French guy.

Did you enjoy posing for the shoot?
Twiggy was my idol. I still do adore her. it was fun dressing up like that - half of my wardrobe is 50's and 60's anyway.

Twiggy got her nickname because of how skinny she was, was her look dangerous for you because of your eating disorder?
I don't think it was dangerous. When I was getting ill as a girl I used to love Karen Carpenter and try to copy her more then Twiggy. Twiggy was healthy. But there was a film about the life and death of Karen Carpenter and I used to watch it over and over again and became slightly obsessed with it.

Most people would watch it and think, I don't want to go down that path...
I used to watch it and think, wow, I want to be like her. I wanted to starve myself to death. That's probably where it all began, really. Maybe it was a coincidence that the film came out when I was getting ill. Someone of normal mind set would see her life as a warning, but someone of an anorexic mind set would find it appealing.

Where are you now with your anorexia? There have been reports that you have been struggling...
I did have a bit of a tough time a month or so ago. I was rewriting my autobiography and I relived a lot of demons. I had to edit the whole thing by myself and take out the bits I didn't feel were relevant anymore. But I've got loads of good support networks around me, and really good friends.

Are you back to a healthy weight?
I'm never going to be a proper healthy weight but I'm getting better then I was.

You were weighing all your food and exercising obsessively...
I'll always go to the gym, but the weighing of food has calmed down a lot. I went for pizza last week. Someone got me a birthday cake and everyone had a small piece and I finished the rest off myself.

Nikki Grahame OK! magzine May 2012

What did you think about Vogue deciding they wouldn't feature unhealthy thin women on its pages? No heroin chic or size zero...
I think it's about time. It's fantastic that they are doing this. It should have been done ages ago. Vogue is one of the most elite fashion magazines so hopefully everyone will follow suit.

Would this have helped you?
To be honest, I think it's a chemical imbalance. I was born with this illness. But I do think the images encourage it.

Do you help a lot of young girls with eating disorders
I get loads of emails from young sufferers, people who have read my book and become inspired by me. It's really rewarding and it makes me think all the campaigning I do is worthwhile.

What revelations can we expect in your new book Fragile, Nikki?
My sister wrote the foreward, which is important to me. For years she's not been able to speak about my illness. She found it really hard going through it all. It has affected our relationship. She resented me for a long time - she is two years older and she saw it as if I was always getting all the attention because of my anorexia. We had a heart-to-heart about it and I wanted her to write about her own experience.

You must be thrilled to be auntie now - has it made you broody?
I love my nephew so much. When the time comes I will adopt from the age of five upwards. Some of these kids might come from damaged backgrounds... That doesn't worry me because I come from a very damaged background myself. If they are five and over, most of the hard work is done. I can't conceive, I won't adopt right away, I'm not ready to settle down yet.

Are you enjoying playing the field?
I love being single. I met a hot Parisian guy on my birthday. We kissed at midnight and he spoke French to me. It was so romantic! He said all kinds of seductive things.
'Voulez vous couchez avec moi, cesoir?' (Giggles) Something along those lines. But I didn't, I was a good girl. We stayed in touch but I think it was just a holiday romance. He was gorgeous.

Are you looking forward to Big Brother coming back?
Always! It's the best reality show on telly, isn't it? I love it! I will be watching every episode!

May 16, 2012  Nikki Grahame on Loose Women

Nikki Grahame picture - 1_150_nikki_grahame_on_loose_women.jpg

Nikki was on Loose Women today sporting a fabulous new hair style with a fringe, talking about her battle with anorexia and her new book Fragile. The panel reviews her time on Ultimate Big Brother when she was talking to Vanessa Feltz in the garden. Nikki was her bubbly old self as she comments on how she would like to look a bit more curvaceous and voluptuousness. She is eating well and she would like to put on a half a stone and is working on doing that.

Nikki also explains how it was really important to update the book since Dying to be Thin as it had inspired so many people to get over their eating disorders. Nikki is now feeling so positive where she is now in life and wants to continue creating awareness.
