In an exclusive interview with OK! magazine, Nikki’s mum Sue said if she could speak to her daughter one last time, she’d tell her she was “pretty much the best thing that ever happened to me – she and her sister”.

“I am so proud of everything she achieved – I’m so lucky she was my girl,” Sue said, describing Nikki’s incredible life, as well as her serious struggles.
