Nikki has auditioned for the part of Poppy Rogers on Five's Be A Star On Neighbours contest. Nikki would love to break into acting and have the opportunity to come to Australia to work on the popular show Neighbours. When she heard about the guest role as Poppy Rogers she immediately saw herself as having a connection with the character, she sees herself as being very similar to Poppy in lots of ways.
In the audition video Nikki said. "I am really free-spirited, I love going to festivals and hanging out with hippies and boys in bands. I love taking risks. I took the biggest risk of my life by going on to Big Brother, and it paid off, and its the best thing I ever did."
Also in the audition Nikki said she has an extremely good heart and would do anything for her friends and family. And that is certainly true. After Big Brother Nikki has shown her heart in other ways by becoming a tireless campaigner for eating disorders, and is committed to raising awareness about the dangers of anorexia. She wrote her book "Dying to be Thin" a true story of her own battle with anorexia in the hope of helping others. Nikki has had such good feedback from the book, that its inspired and given hope to many who still suffer from the illness.
Nikki's audition video can be seen on the Be a Star youtube channel. Initially Nikki's friend uploaded the audition in two parts, the intro and the audition through his youtube account. To comply with terms and conditions and to have the audition on a single video Nikki re-uploaded the audition video to her own youtube channel specialnikki and it can also be seen on the Be a Star channel. See Nikki's audition as Poppy Rogers below or on youtube.
