Along with Eve Pollard and Emma Kenny, Nikki was on "This Morning" (ITV1) being interviewed by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby about children and divorce.
They began by asking Nikki about the effect on her of her parents' break-up. Nikki explained that she had felt that her world, which had up to then been very happy, seemed to be falling apart. It was very difficult for her and her sister to hear the arguments and to see their mother crying and getting so upset and Nikki mentioned that it had all contributed to her getting ill. When asked about this, Nikki said that she had seen her illness as a way of taking control and maybe getting them back together, which Emma Kenny (a psychologist) said was a very normal reaction to that situation. Nikki also spoke about attending court for the custody battle and how hard that had been as she was only 9 years old at the time and had felt caught in the middle of something she really didn't understand.
Following some discussion between Eve Pollard and Emma Kenny, Nikki was asked whether her parents' divorce had affected her views on marriage and Nikki admitted that it had and that she was rather sceptical about the whole thing since so many people these days seemed to get divorced.
It's very clear that her parents divorce had a huge effect on Nikki's life and so it was a very serious Nikki that we saw today. Nevertheless she made an excellent contribution to the discussion.
