Nikki Grahame set for BB return

Drama queen Nikki Grahame, who first appeared on the show in 2006, is set to return to the Big Brother house in a shock twist.

Drama queen Nikki first appeared in the reality TV show in 2006 and also featured in Ultimate Big Brother. Now it appears she will be entering the house yet again in a twist on Friday.

Presenter Emma Willis has revealed there will be a fake eviction which will see the evicted housemate enter a ‘secret lair’ alongside former contestants.

British newspaper The Sun reports Nikki will be joined by two other housemates for the Timebomb twist.

Nikki fuelled rumours of a return while discussing the latest series during a recent interview for Channel 5.

“Umm I’m not going in tonight but I would quite fancy doing I’m A Celeb before I go back in the house,” she replied when quizzed on her involvement in the show. “I don’t want to spoil any surprises.”

Despite raising a few eyebrows when she first entered the Big Brother house in 2006, Nikki insists she has only fond memories of the experience.

“I was a real crazy character, wasn’t I? But that was like ten years ago. I had a lot of nervous energy, I’ve mellowed,” she told Five News. “It just feels crazy to look back. I have just had the best time, the best experience.

“I know it sounds like a cliché but it really was the best thing in my life.”

Nikki gained a reputation for throwing tantrums and causing drama during her time in the house. However, she insists her questionable behaviour was a result of “frustration” with the show’s format.

“It’s more frustration than anything else. You have no control over anything in that house and it’s really frustrating when Big Brother is controlling everything,” she explained.

“The only way you can speak to them is to go in the diary room but by the time you’ve got in the diary room, because they don’t just let you in. You have to press the bottom and you can be standing there for half an hour.”
