From the This Morning Website:-

Famed for her constant tantrums in Big Brother 7; drama queen Nikki Grahame's diary room antics and crying fits made compelling viewing.

But behind it all, lies a devastating story; since the age of eight Nikki, 26, has battled with anorexia. Now thankfully in recovery, Nikki is keen to highlight the devastating effects of the illness. Scarred from ripping out feeding tubes; Nikki also lost hair, some of her teeth (and the enamel of the remaining teeth), and as a result of years of anorexia has now developed osteoporosis and has the ovaries of an 11-year-old.

She says: 'It's so sad because I'd love to have kids. I was obsessed with looking at models, and being as skinny as them. I hated everything about myself with such a passion.'

Although she says she has her illness under control, she will never have a 'normal' attitude towards food. 'I can go to nice restaurants, I eat chocolate, I eat crisps, but I will always be aware of what my body looks like.'

The Big Brother housemates returned to the wild for the show's wrap party and. as you'd expect, OK's very own inch-high private eye Nikki Grahame was on hand to spill the beans on all the behind-the-scenes gossip. It was sexy Steph's shenanigans with show-off chef Rex which really had us all in a spin, after the Scouse wannabe claimed that Rex spent the night after the party in bed with her, following a row with girlfriend Nicole. But Steph's claims that she and randy Rex were wrapped in each other's…
