During his first season on the show, Nick came to be known as the season's villain due to his duplicitous nature, often lying to his fellow housemates (such as by saying that his wife had died in a car crash) and attempting to turn them against each other. These actions led to him being hated by the public, who dubbed him "Nasty Nick" and called for him to be kicked out of the house. Despite this negative public perception, Nick was well-liked in the house, never receiving a nomination vote during his stay in the house. However, on Day 35 he was confronted by his fellow housemates (who had been tipped off by production) for his actions throughout the season as well as for attempting to manipulate the nominations process. This manipulation ultimately led to him being ejected from the house by the producers.
After his season Nick became an infamous figure in the eye of the public, making multiple appearances on other shows as well as releasing his own book entitled Nasty Nick: How to be a Right Bastard. As a result of his publicity, Nick was asked to participate in Ultimate Big Brother, Big Brother (UK)'s all-stars season. Despite not being trusted by his fellow housemates, he did considerably better this season, making it to finale night and ultimately placing fifth.
