Nikki on Teeth Grinder

This was a very funny interview with DJ Scrunter, a puppet who Nikki compared to Chuckie the doll from the Movie Childs Play lol. Its Nikki's 2nd time in Northern Ireland, the first time was for 2 PA's in Newry.

Nikki mentions her OK! column, her book, her time on Big Brother and her worst ever date. She also talked about her OCD and complained about the dirty desk and cups. Then she was offered a bottle of cheap wine by the DJ which Nikki smelled, and frowning in disgust said it made her feel sick and its what some tramp on the bus would be drinking. Very funny interview watch it here.

Snickers No Nuts No Entry event, welcoming Mr T to London

For ITN Nikki talks about her car accident, her anorexia, time on big brother, about Jade and her love life in 3 videos. The video's number 4, 5 and 6 can be viewed on the ITN website along with Mr T's videos.

Nikki's video's are number 4, 5 and 6, Nikki really opened up and is deffo her best interview to date about her book, her anorexia, big brother and whats happening in her life.

Nikki mentions her car accident where she cracked her head open but has healed nicely. Nikki talks about how she spent all of last year writing her book Dying To be thin and includes how she spent 8 years in hospital and about her struggle with anorexia.

Nikki said "I want to help young girls who are struggling with anorexia and if my book can save 1 life it would have been worth it".

Nikki talks about how hard its been to put her past on paper. But since starting the book which has taken her 15 months has been great therapy for her.

Nikki said "Its the best thing I have ever done, I have missed my childhood, I have done irreparable damage to my body, like I cant have kids, I have got acute osteoporosis in my spine, never had a period in my life, I missed my pubity, I missed all my schooling, have no qualifications. And so if I can pull a positive out of it by hopefully preventing other young girls falling victim to it, at least I have got something out of the illness".

Nikki goes on to tell of her experiences in Rhodes Farm and how she came home for 3 days and saw her old friends that had saturday jobs and a life. Then there was her that was so institutionalised and didn't know anything from anything and knew nothing but hospital and decided she just wanted to experience life. Nikki: "There is so much life out there and I just have to go and get it", that was the turning point for Nikki and to her recovery.

Nikki: "By going on Big brother is the best thing I have ever done in my life, its helped me conquer so many demons and I haven't looked back".
