Nichola Holt was a housemate in Big Brother 1 (UK).


Nichola was a 29-year-old art teacher from Bolton, Lancashire who lived with her parents. She achieved further education and gained a BA in Textile Design. Her mother, Joyce, is a member of a religious sect and a worrier. Her father is a hermit who loves routine and is a private person. She has one sister. Nichola left home at the age of 17 and is into both Buddhism and Spiritualism.

Nichola has a shaven head is a slim 5'5" and has several tattoos around her belly button, at the bottom of her spine, and between her shoulder blades at the base of the neck. She has her nose, ears, lip, belly button, tongue, and clitoral hood pierced

She works as a self-employed textile artist and art teacher but has previously worked as a tax officer, a life model, a bar waitress, a care worker, a 3-D artist, and a costume designer. Her dream job would be a trapeze artist, fashion or costume designer, and a world traveler

Nichola likes chess, running, fencing, weights, Acid house, techno music, hip hop, dance, jazz, and acid jazz and dislikes traffic jams, pollution, negative people, jealousy, Cliff Richard, lies, aggression, vindictiveness, and Liver. And like many people in this country has a fear of getting fat. Her favorite artistes are Abba, Japan, Madonna, Annie Lennox, and Brea.

Her friends say she is "Wild, expressive, loved, an exhibitionist, horny, getting drunk and taking clothes off in public, witty, and most definitely mad for it! A veritable Nutter Nichola!" Her good traits are caring, friendly, playful, creative, energetic, focussed, generous, open, a leader, good for a laugh, and reliable, while her bad traits are going off on a tangent, talking rubbish when drunk, talking too loud, swearing too much.

Her last holiday was traveling alone to Ozura, Hungary for the Solipse Festival. She then traveled through Europe to Orgiva, near Granada, Spain. Nichola's most memorable holiday was in Ibiza where met up with a punk and got into much naughtiness.

Her dream holiday would be a stay in a Buddhist commune in India where she would meditate, learn yoga, and chill out. Afterward, she would move to the Himalayas and then take on the rest of the world.
