Big Brother 2006 contestant Nikki Grahame is to have her own TV show, Princess Nikki, on digital channel E4.

The model, 24, of Watford, Herts, gained a reputation for throwing temper tantrums on the Channel 4 reality show before she was evicted on 14 July.

The programme will follow her attempts to hold down an everyday job - referencing her stroppy turn as a PA in a Big Brother task.

It will be shown on E4 after Big Brother ends later this summer.

"They won't tell me what jobs I'll be doing, but they've told me they'll be tough," said Ms Grahame in a statement.

"As long as they don't make me a bin woman or put me on a fishing boat in the middle of the North Sea, I'll be okay."

A producer for the programme said: "Bin woman and deep sea trawler fisher-person are high on our list."

Ms Grahame is not the first Big Brother contestant to launch a TV career.

Anna Nolan, from the first series, hosts a magazine programme, The Afternoon Show, in Ireland.

Jade Goody, from series three, and this year's winner of Celebrity Big Brother, Chantelle Houghton, have also secured their own TV shows.
