Channel 4 has commissioned a one-off programme about the late Big Brother legend Nikki Grahame.

The reality star tragically lost her life earlier this year following a long battle with anorexia which worsened during the coronavirus lockdown.

In the 60-minute piece, Nikki's life will be celebrated through archive and home footage, as well as interviews with her mother Sue, her closest friends and celebrity fans.

"Nikki was so much more than a reality TV contestant and I am looking forward to celebrating her short life in this documentary," said Sue.

"It will be tough, but Nikki was one special girl - kind and smart with the biggest heart - and I know [this show] will do her proud."

Rita Daniels, commissioning editor at Channel 4, said: "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."

The programme is expected to air later this year.
