When Nikki Grahame entered the Big Brother house in 2006, little did she know that she would become one of the most popular and most talked about housemates of the whole series.

In 2010, not surprisingly, Nikki was chosen to re-enter the Big Brother house for Ultimate Big Brother where she showed how popular she still was by finishing as the runner-up and the most popular female contestant. Since UBB she has been touring around the country doing personal appearances and giving TV and radio interviews.

Nikki once again entered the Big Brother house in 2015 as a Time Warp housemate. She stayed for 2 weeks before coming out to rapturous applause. Between the 3 Big Brother series she has been part of she is now the only UK housemate to do more then 100 days (102) in the Big Brother House.

In 2011 Nikki starred in a series of TV ads and online films, for Foxy Radio. Nikki has also presented shows on Foxy Bingo Radio.

Nikki's personality and rather eccentric sense of humour, not to mention her ability to laugh at herself, has led to her being asked to make many guest appearances on shows like 'T4', '8 out of 10 Cats' and 'Celebrity Juice' to name a few. She is also one of the very few BB stars to be interviewed on 'Friday Night with Jonathan Ross'.

Nikki wrote a regular column for OK! Magazine for 3 years and wrote her autobiography "Dying To Be Thin", to highlight the dangers of anorexia, and has campaigned actively for anorexia charities and the National Osteoporosis Society. She has also worked with Body Gossip, a charity that promotes realistic beauty, acting with a celebrity cast on stage in London and at the Edinburgh Festival and in a series of films produced by them.

Many of the phrases that Nikki's used in the BB house such as "Who IS She" soon became known to a wider audience as did her "over the top" personality. Not surprisingly therefore Nikki was chosen, in 2007, to appear in a Dominos Pizza advert for their new range of pizzas.

Nikki also won a National Television Award in 2006 for Best TV Contender.
