Nikki's NTA party snub
13:30 02 November 2006
'Big Brother 7' star Nikki Grahame was left red-faced after she was turned away from the National Television Awards after-party.
The blonde - who had won the prize for the Most Popular TV Contender just hours earlier - screamed, shouted and broke down in tears when security guards at the Royal College of Art, in London, refused her entry because she had forgotten her invitation.
An eye witness said: "Everybody knew who she was apart from the guards. They were enjoying making her squirm."
After an hour of tantrums, Nikki - famous for yelling 'Who IS she?' in the Big Brother Diary Room when fellow contestant Susie Verrico entered the show - was finally allowed into the party, but did not join in the fun with the other revellers at first.
A source said: "Nikki said she hated every second and didn't want to be there."
Despite her initial dissatisfaction, the 24-year-old star partied until the early hours and did not leave Tuesday's (31.10.06) bash until 2am.
