Nicole > Career > Adverts > SKY ITALIA (2006)

In 2006 it was announced that Nicole would film short promotional adverts for Sky Italia. She filmed the adverts in early September of the same year in the area of Testaccio, Italy. The spots were released later in the year, with a Christmas themed one in December.

Filming was hit with controversy when reports emerged that residents were unhappy with the filming and the fee they had received. After negotiations, residents allowed the filming to continue.

The residents of Testaccio had nothing but praise for Nicole, with one saying "She was fantastic and smiled and waved to us and even said 'ciao' in Italian which was very nice of her."
