Nikki Grahame - Closer Magazine, story behind a photo

Nikki tells the story behind a group photo of the Celebrity Netball 7's in Closer Magazine. Nikki recalls the events of the Netball, about the girls in the group, winning the tournament and celebrating. Nikki thinks maybe she should organise the next event, she would love to do a charity circus show. Nikki tells the story below.

This photo was taken at the Celebrity Netball 7's charity tournament in 2007, which was in aid of the Charities Trust. It was such a fun day!

Michelle Heaton had taken part the year before, so she put the team together - reality TV star Bianca Gascoigne and actress Gemma Bissix were also playing. All the girls were so lovely.

I've known Michelle since we met on the red carpet at a film premiere in 2006, just after I was evicted from the Big Brother house. And I met Bianca that year too, at the Closer Young Heroes Awards. She'd just won Celebrity Love Island and we hit it off straight away.

The tournament was great. Our team won and it was an amazing feeling. The girls on our team were brilliant.

After we'd finished, we went out to the Light Bar in Shoreditch for drinks. And, even though it was raining and we got absolutely soaked, we had the best time ever.

I don't get to see the girls that often, we're all so busy, but it's fantastic when we do finally get together.

Maybe I should organise the next event? I'd love to do a charity circus show. When I was treated at the Maudsley Hospital for eating disorders when I was eight, they used to take us to a children's workshop in South London to learn circus skills. It was such fun - we used to ride unicycles and make human pyramids. Maybe I could talk to some of the group into doing it!

Then we had Angel's 'hunger strike'. Listen darling I don't know what you think you are doing, but you are setting a bad example to young girls watching the show. show more show less Never skip your meal's! If she keeps on like this Big Brother should remove her from the house. Cairon showed his true colours…
