This weeks column is a look back over Nikki's time in Ultimate Big Brother.
HELLO TO ALL MY READERS
I'm sure you're all aware that I have been in the Ultimate Big Brother House! By the time you read this it will all be over and the BB house will have closed its doors forever. It's certainly been memorable.
I'M SAD ITS ALL OVER
I'm sad my Big Brother experience is over. This time round on UBB and when I entered the BB house for the first time in 2006 it has brought so many happy times. I've been a huge fan of the show and feel truly honoured to have been part of it. I will keep the wonderful memories it has left with me for ever.
MY SNORING NIGHTMARE
The only thing I found hard in the house again was having to sleep in the bedroom with 3 very loud snorers! Victor was the loudest and unfortunately he was sleeping right next to me. I'm afraid that earplugs just didn't work!
MY FAVOURITE TASK
I loved the retrospective task where some of my favourite housemates from past years came back into the house, such as Pete, Glyn and the beautiful Samanda twins. It brought back so many fond, happy memories and it was so lovely to see Pete again. I'm so happy we are friends now as we really did share a very special magical experience together.
NIKKI'S CHOSEN BEST BITS were, the typewriter that made her cry, Nikki becoming a PA, scary Mr Snuggles, being a guest on the Vanessa show, and choreographing the majorettes task.
STAR magazine also featured Big Brother with an account of the UBB final and a feature on BB's most memorable moments: these included Nikki's diary room rant "Who Is She which they say "unintentionally sparked a nationwide catchphrase."
Nikki's aircon rant was their number 1 in their top 5 moments in BB7

"Nikki's Biggest Super Sweet 16 Tantrums" In a thoroughly OTT setting, wearing a tiara and holding her 2 adorable dogs, Baby and Thumbelina, Nikki presented this show which was aired on MTV and Viva TV. If you thought Nikki was a tantrum queen you should have seen the round-up of the best bits of this popular reality TV show - there were tears, hissy fits, OTT frocks, extravagant gifts and plenty of feet stamping and Nikki did an excellent job guiding us through it. Nikki recorded this in March…

Yesterday saw housemates enacting the funeral of Big Brother. The show has been the highlight of TV viewing in the summer for 10 years. We've seen so many housemates come and go. Many really nice people have got through to the final of their series and some have even won. But that isn't what Big Brother was about - it was about the funny, entertaining and controversial housemates that everyone talked about whether they liked them or not. It's a game show!! Nikki has always been a marmite character…
