Nikki Ann Sanderson was born 28 March 1984 and she is an English actress who is best known for playing Candice Stowe in the television soap opera Coronation Street. During her time at Coronation Street and since, she has also forged a career as a glamour model.
Sanderson joined Coronation Street in 1999 and left in Autumn 2005. Prior to this, she had appeared in children's drama Children's Ward. In 2006, she appeared in a guest role in the BBC television series New Street Law alongside other notable Coronation Street alumni Chris Gascoyne and Chris Bisson. British newspaper The Daily Express stated that she was in the running  to replace Billie Piper as the Doctor's companion in Doctor Who, however Freema Agyeman was chosen for the role. Sanderson appeared in a production of The Vagina Monologues in Blackpool in 2006. She will next appear in the ITV series Strictly Confidential.
A naturally gifted vocalist, Sanderson loves to show this side of herself off; jumping up to sing at every opportunity, she is a self-confessed karaoke enthusiast. Recently she has made several television appearances singing, most notably on ITV's Celebrity Stars in Their Eyes, where her impression of LeAnn Rimes, singing the smash hit theme from the film Coyote Ugly, 'Can't Fight The Moonlight' earned her the winner's spot. She recently appeared on The X Factor: Battle Of The Stars in the solo 16-24 category, mentored by Sharon Osbourne where she was eliminated 5th. (It must be said, however, that Sanderson was suffering from tonsillitis at the time and was straining her voice to sing.) Despite the exit from the show, she hopes to perhaps one day pursue a music career.
She has appeared in several British men's magazines in lingerie and other provocative outfits. In June 2006, Sanderson made the cover of British men's magazine FHM and was the headlining feature of the issue, combining a photo shoot and exclusive interview with one of the magazine's journalists.
In May 2006 Sanderson played for the England women's team in the Celebrity World Cup Soccer Six tournament. Her stout performance helped her team to the final, although they eventually lost.
She has worked as a television presenter on CD:UK.
Sanderson is from Bury, Greater Manchester. She has dated her Coronation Street co-star Danny Young, although their current relationship status is unknown.
