Nikki tells Closer that she is once again locked in a struggle with anorexia and exercise addiction. After maintaining her weight since appearing on Big Brother in 2006, she has shed nearly a stone over the past year.
"I started losing weight over a year ago," says Nikki. "It's been worse in the past few months. I hate it, ... nothing fits me any more...."
Nikki said "When I wrote my book last year I was a good example of someone who'd overcome anorexia. Now I feel like I have let everyone down."
The full text of the interview can be read in Closer Magazine. Nikki is certainly not in denial and agreed to do the photoshoot and talk candidly about the agony of living with anorexia to help raise awareness of the illness. Nikki admits she needs and will seek professional help. As well as anorexia Nikki also suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder which makes eating more complicated.
Since Closer magazine came out, Nikki has been receiving a lot of email of support on her website email address, that her book is an inspiration to all and that she hasn't let anyone down. And I certainly agree with that and would like to thank and to assure everyone that has sent such kind messages to Nikki that they are all passed on to her and she does get to read them. Des.

This week Nikki talks about Cheryl Cole's single life, Dawn French and Lenny Henry's split, and Jordan's post-natal depression. MY DIARY I had a bit of an unlucky few days last week as I had a power cut and my car broke down! I'm now looking for a new one. I did some filming for a Big Brother show about memorable housemates and moments and that more than made up for it, though. It will be screened before the final series. I'm really into watching The City on MTV at the moment, so I've been catching…
