Nikki is a natural performer with her quirky sense of humour and warm presenting style. She is best known to television audiences for her role in the Nine Network’s late night interactive game show, Quizmania, Nikki was spotted by Mick Molloy and invited onto his Triple M radio show, ToughLove. The guest spot turned into something of an audition and when Molloy began developing his new Nine Network series, The Nation, Osborne joined the team as a roving reporter and performer.
At 27, Osborne, who studied drama at Queensland University of Technology, already has impressive credits to her name.
In 2003, she worked with Oscar-winning director Peter Bogdanovich on the popular miniseries The Mystery of Natalie Wood, playing Wood’s best friend, Jackie Estes.
She also appeared in the award-winning Australian mini-series Jessica, an adaptation of Bryce Courtenay’s bestseller of the same name, and demonstrated her comic talents in the Australian feature film Ned, written and directed by Abe Forsythe.
In April 2009, Nikki completed a television special for Channel Nine on regional Victoria.
Nikki is also the proud mum of Will.
