Former 'Big Brother' couple Pete Bennett and Nikki Grahame admit they fear they ''killed'' the reality TV show
Pete Bennett and Nikki Grahame think they killed 'Big Brother'.
The pair - who fell in love during the seventh series of the reality show and dated for a few weeks afterwards - believe the programme was never as good once their series and romance ended.
Pete said: "We kind of killed 'Big Brother'."
Nikki added: "It was never as good after that!"
Although the pair's romance didn't last very long, the blonde beauty admits their relationship was intense and she has never been as heartbroken as that since.
She told heat magazine: "I was so different back then. I'm happy with my life right now and I know you're married, Pete, but no one broke my heart like you did."
There have been numerous romances on the show since it kicked off in 2000, but series seven's Grace and Mikey Dalton - who married last year - are the only pair still together.
Grace said: "We decided that we weren't going to justify being together all the time, so we just did our own thing."
Mikey added: "Yeah. Now look who's happy."
