Nikki was on the Mark Powlett show on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire yesterday afternoon to promote her acoustic gig at The Assembly in Leamington. Nikki was there along with her guitarist Chris to play a song live in the studio - Someday by The Strokes.

It was a good interview with Mark asking Nikki about people knowing her from Big Brother as being high maintenance. Nikki answered that she has actually calmed down a lot over the last 4 years and if you had seen her on Ultimate Big Brother then people did see a different Nikki and not so high maintenance, adding that she thought Ulrika was far more high maintenance then her this time round. They also talked about the tone of her voice coming across as whining and Nikki said she does have a distinctive voice, and does sometimes sound like she's whining even when she is cheerful - which leads to a lot of misunderstanding.

Hear the full interview below with Nikki singing Someday by The Strokes. Nikki stresses that she isn't intent on launching a singing career and is doing the gigs for fun. She says she is passionate about the music that she likes and thought it would be good to do cover sets of some of her favourite songs.
