In this weeks Reveal magazine there is an exclusive interview with Nikki, she talks about Ultimate Big Brother and how it's helped her put on weight. For the first time in her life Nikki put on 5 pounds outside of hospital by simply returning to the Big Brother House.

Nikki tells us: "I have never been able to discipline myself outside of hospital, but I felt so safe in the BB house. There was nothing to worry about and the stresses of outside life weren't there. I was too thin before I went in and usually freak out if I put on weight, but I didn't care when I was in there".

She adds: "In the outside world, normal things such as paying bills and issues with friends can affect my weight. But BB gave me an escape..."

Nikki also describes how putting on weight was mentally tough to deal with. As her weight crept up Nikki's jeans got tighter, but for the first time she felt incredibly proud, rather then disgusted.
