She could have held it anywhere but Big Brother TV celebrity Nikki Grahame chose to hold her ‘coming out party’ after her much-publicised exit from the show not in London or Manchester at the weekend but in Harrogate. And she said she loved the town.
The ‘legendary’ housemate left the house last Friday night in the Channel 5 reality TV show, then spent much of Saturday in Harrogate.
Grahame, who first shot to fame in the original Channel 4 Big Brother series in 2006 with her zany sayings and catchphrase “Who is she?”, made an obligatory visit to Bettys tearooms tweeting how much she enjoyed it.
The recognisable 31-year-old personality, who moved to France recently, then spent the night as a VIP guest of Harrogate’s Viper Rooms where she chatted with fans and let her hair down a little after her spell in the pressure cooker of reality TV.
While she was there she tweeted: “Having such a blast at @TheViperRooms .. And I bloody love Harrogate!! Xx”
It’s not known whether she talked to fans about her well-documented battle with a eating disorder which fellow Big Brother contestant Helen Wood mocked in a controversial fashion when they were in the Channel 5 series together recently.
