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.
