Nikki's Hotstars Column in OK! Magazine - issue 751
Nikki Grahame talks X Factor, Strictly and going on her first ever acoustic singing tour.
Hello! I've been very busy lately. I've just filmed a pilot for MTV, although it's top secret at the moment! Last weekend I went to a Caral Barat gig in Paris and back in London I met Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, while doing a reading for Body Gossip - she was very funny! The big news is that I'm preparing to do an acoustic tour, where i'll be singing my favourite songs - it's all very exciting! And I'm starring as Princess Jasmin in Aladdin - check out all the details at www.nikkigrahame.info. See you in four weeks! x
ANN'S A STRICTLY STAR!
Tina O'Brien was my favourite contestant in Stirctly Come Dancing so it was disappointing to see her go. Kara Tointon's doing really well, though, and so is Scott Maslen. My mum and I are huge fans of Ann Widdecombe and I think people should stop seeing her as the joker. She's trying really hard and people should applaud her for all her hard efforts. We've got to see a totally different side to her!
X FACTOR'S KATE NEEDS A BREAK
I'm loving the X Factor. I'm feeling a bit sorry for Katie Waissel, though as she's getting a hard time in the media - maybe her profile in the show has just been to big. I think Cher Lloyd's been great recently and Rebecca Ferguson would be a worthy winner. And although Wagner isn't the best singer, his performances are entertaining!
I'M SO SAD FOR LILY
I was so sad to hear of Lily Allen's miscarriage. I'm a really big fan of hers and really feel for her right now. It must be so horrendous to have everything taken away from you at the last minute, it's heartbreaking. I hope she takes some time out with friends and family who care for her. It's important to remember her boyfriend, Sam Cooper, too, as sometimes it's easy to forget about the dad in these tragic situations.
JORDAN SHOULDN'T MEET PETER
Apparently Jordan wants to arrange a meeting with Peter Andre to discuss their marriage breakdown. I think that's a bit unfair on her husband Alex Reid - he'd be very understanding if he didn't mind that happening. I don't think Peter would be up for it, though, as he seems to have moved on. Meeting up could just stir up bad feelings. Then again, they could prove us all wrong and form a really good and lasting friendship for the sake of the children.
