Nikki gave this interview to the Press Association in support of Jade Goody when she attended the No Nuts! No Entry! party last night.
Nikki Grahame says she is still hopeful that Jade Goody will recover from cervical cancer.
Nikki spoke out in support of the reality TV star at an event welcoming A Team legend Mr T to London.
She said: "She's a very, very genuine girl and I just wish her all the best and I hope she has a miraculous recovery - miracles happen. Who knows, she could be alright this time in a couple of months."
"I think she will be, I think she's a fighter, she's a trooper, she'll get through this," she continued.
Nikki - who also found fame as a contestant on Big Brother - said Jade's plight has put "everything into perspective" and that she was pleased to see her happy on her wedding day.
"It's absolutely awful - it really puts everything into perspective. I just wish there was something I could do, I feel so helpless and I feel for her little boys watching their mum go through that, it must be awful," she said.
"If it was me I probably would've put a wig on and not faced up to it but she has gone out there and she is like 'yeah this is how it is' and just showed the world that that's what she's going through."
Lucy Pinder - who was in Celebrity Big Brother this year - said the publicity is making more women have smear tests.
"It can only be a good thing that it's making women out there kind of think about going and having their smear tests," she said.
Nikki also spoke of Jade's wedding in her OK! Column this week and said that it will have been just the boost she needs. She's going through a horrible time and hopefully she was able to take her mind off things for a few hours.

This week Nikki talks about the Brit award winners, Peaches new fella and Jade and Jacks big day.... WELL DONE DUFFY AND GIRLS ALOUD! I thought the BRIT awards were brilliant. Unfortunately, I missed the show because of my accident, but I saw it on TV. I'm really pleased for Duffy and Girls Aloud - their awards were well deserved. I'm really upset that Elbow beat Radiohead for best British Group, though. My favourite performance was Estelle and The Ting Tings but I'm a bit bored of Take That now.…
