Nikki's Hotstar Column in OK! magazine this week - issue 709
This week Nikki talks about Dannii's baby news, Emma spicing up dancing on ice and Celebrity Big Brother....
Last week I spent a few days at Champneys in Henlow Grange, which was lovely and relaxing after the rush of New Year! This week I'm going to see the new film about Blur - No Distance Left To Run - and I can't wait! My electric guitar lessons with my boyfriend Sam are going well and so far I can play T.Rex's 20th Century Boy. I can't wait to be able to play songs by my favourite bands. I'd also like to say happy 30th birthday to my sister Natalie - I'll be DJing at her party!
SO HAPPY FOR DANNII'S BABY JOY
I'm so happy for Dannii Minogue over her baby news, she'll be a great mum. I'm thrilled she got in before Cheryl Cole as I think there may have been a race going on! It's Dannii's time to shine now - she seems to have been in the background for far to long! I also hope that she'll continue with the X Factor after the baby's born, it wouldn't be the same without her.
CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER IS THE BEST YET!
This Celebrity Big Brother is the best one so far! Vinnie Jones has to be my favourite, I love the way he's been teasing Alex Reid. Alex may be a bit of an idiot, but I want him to stay, as he's great entertainment value. I love Ivana Trump. too, she's so funny. Nicola T's a bit irritating, though, and I don't think Dane Bowers has been very interesting.
THE X FACTOR GOES STATESIDE
I can't imagine how rich Simon Cowell must be since signing the US X Factor deal. He's worked really hard for his success, though, and is the public entertainment they want. Although with the US version likely to be in the Autumn, we may have to wait a whole year before the UK series starts and I don't know if I can! There's even talk Cheryl Cole and Dermot O'Leary may be joining Simon on the US show. I think US audiences would take to them both.
EMMA'S A GREAT ADDITION TO DANCING ON ICE
I'm loving Dancing On Ice although I couldn't believe Sinitta got voted off in the first show, she was really good. I prefer it to Strictly Come Dancing, which I find too formal. Dancing On Ice is much more risky and I'd love to have a go! I think Emma Bunton is a great new judge. She's the voice of the people and her advice really counts as she's got dancing experience - even though it hasn't been on ice.
