In October 2007 Nikki fell while walking her dog, causing her to break her ankle quite severely. She was left in agony on the footpath until someone walked by and called an ambulance for her.
Nikki: (asked if she's worked with any of the "Neighbours" cast before) I've been fortunate to work with Alan Fletcher a couple of times previously. We played husband and wife in the miniseries Sword Of Honour and worked together in All The Rivers Run back in the '80s. We've always shared a laugh.
Nikki: (on her character, Miranda, on "Neighbours") Her name is Miranda Parker and she's the mother in a new family arriving in Ramsay Street. She's very kind and protective mother of two teenage children, Bridget and Riley. She has a close relationship to her husband, Steve, and works as an event manager.
