Channel 4 announce new show to celebrate Nikki Grahame

Channel 4 have today announced that they have commissioned a new film giving an intimate look at the life of Nikki Grahame following her death at the age of 38.

Feisty, volatile and unapologetic, Nikki was an inspiration to millions – and when she uttered her most famouse line on Big Brother: “Who IS she?! Who IS she?!”, she became a TV legend.

Although behind the bright and funny media persona that she showed, Nikki was a complex woman who bravely battled anorexia for over 30 years.

Her illness reached crisis point during the UK’s third national lockdown and, tragically, Nikki lost her fight for life on Friday 9th April 2021.

Commissioned by Rita Daniels, the film is being produced by Angel Eye Media, executive produced by Ollie Durrant and Richard Osborne and helmed by award-winning director Jane Preston. This 1×60 film will celebrate Nikki’s life through archive and home movies. Exclusive interviews with Nikki’s mother, close family and friends – and tributes from celebrity colleagues – will reveal the complexities of anorexia and the impact this cruel and misunderstood illness had on Nikki and everybody who loved her.

Sue Graham, Nikki’s mother says: “Nikki was so much more than a reality TV contestant and I am looking forward to celebrating her short life in this documentary. It will be tough, but Nikki was one special girl – kind and smart with the biggest heart – and I know Jane and Angel Eye will do her proud.” 

Ollie Durrant, Executive Producer says: “We are honoured to be making this important film with Nikki’s family and friends. She was an amazingly kind, caring person who despite her own struggles, worked tirelessly to raise awareness of anorexia and the exponential rise of mental health issues in society today. We hope this film is a fitting tribute to her legacy.”

Rita Daniels, Commissioning Editor says: “Nikki was an important part of Channel 4 and Big Brother history. We were deeply saddened by her passing and so this important multi-layered film celebrates Nikki, the reality TV legend in a way that shows respect and gives dignity to Nikki’s memory.”
