Nikki Grahame

TV Appearances

March 18, 2010

Nikki is a natural on TV – She's spontaneous, funny and never afraid to speak her mind. Love her or hate her – she's always herself and hugely entertaining, hence her National Television Award in November 2006 for Best TV Contender.

Following Big Brother she was given her own show, Princess Nikki. Nikki appeared as herself in a series of programmes where she was given a different job to do each week. The aim of the programme makers was to give Nikki the worst jobs they could find, sit back and wait for the tantrums – she didn't disappoint! And who could blame her given that all the jobs seemed to involve dirt and / or excrement! It was very funny to watch. Not surprisingly the one programme where she actually enjoyed what she was doing and the tantrums were at a minimum was never shown – but you can see it on the video page courtesy of the people she was working for who thought she was great, as well as all the other episodes.

Advertising Campaigns: Many of the phrases that Nikki's used in the BB house such as "Who IS She" soon became known to a wider audience as did her "over the top" personality. Not surprisingly therefore Nikki was chosen, in 2007, to appear in a Dominos Pizza advert for their new range of pizzas. The campaign ran for 4 weeks and was very successful.

In 2009 she also starred in a video for the Bassett's Allsorts ad campaign launched by the Red Consultancy and in 2011 starred in a series of TV ads and online films, created by London agency Biscuit, for Foxy Radio.

Interviews: Nikki attracted a lot of media attention immediately after BB when the story of her childhood anorexia came out and she did several interviews including 'This Morning' and 'Richard and Judy'. Since the publication of her book "Dying to be Thin" she has done several daytime TV interviews to talk about her book and about her life coping with anorexia, such as 'Richard and Judy', and 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'.

She has also been asked to talk about life after reality TV on 'Richard and Judy', was interviewed on Channel 5's show 'Live from Studio 5' on the subject of whether reality TV contestants should get paid and has appeared on 'This Morning' to talk about the effects of divorce on children.

TV shows: Nikki's personality and rather eccentric sense of humour, not to mention her ability to laugh at herself, has led to her being asked to make many guest appearances on shows like 'T4', '8 out of 10 Cats', 'Celebrity Juice', 'Friday Night Project', Graham Norton's 'Big Finish', BBC3's 'Teeth Grinder' and a celebrity edition of 'The Weakest Link'. She is also one of the very few BB stars to be interviewed on the 'Jonathan Ross Show', was a judge on BBC2's 'Scene Stealers' and was a guest on Ireland's popular 'Podge and Rodge Show'. In 2010 she also appeared on TMI on CBBC, having been on their very first show in 2006.

She has also featured in various vox pop items such as BBC's 'Most Annoying People' and 'Generation Sex' where she can always be relied upon to give a frank, funny and honest answers!

Presenting: Her natural vivacity, openness and ability to listen as well as talk has meant that Nikki has shown herself to be an excellent presenter and interviewer. Following her appearance on BB, Nikki was a co-presenter on 'Celebrity Juice' and, in 2008, was a guest presenter with Jeff Brazier on the 'Trisha Goddard Show' (Battle of the Sexes). She also interviewed Davina McCall on 'Big Brothers Little Brother' and, in her role as roving reporter for the programme, interviewed several stars on the red carpet including Dustin Hoffman and Michael Caine.
In 2010 she presented MTV's 'My Super Sweet Sixteen'.

Big Brother: Nikki has regularly appeared on the BB spin-off shows, 'BBLB' and 'Big Mouth' and made a guest appearance in Big Brother 2009. In 2010 she was chosen to enter the house for Ultimate Big Brother, where she came 2nd.
