The former Quizmania host then appeared to take a subtle blow to Abbie, who currently hosts Love Island After Party.
“So if you’re a precious doll, stay home and watch Love Island,” Nikki wrote.
It comes after Abbie took aim at Nikki on Instagram after sharing a questionable meme that offended people on the internet.

The post in question, which has since been deleted, depicts convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein alongside actress Lindsay Lohan, with the caption: “The original with no jab, no job.”
The meme refers to the mandates of the Covid-19 vaccines in the workplace and compares them to Weinstein’s “casting couch” crimes.
The disgraced American film producer is serving a 23-year sentence after a jury found him guilty in March 2020 of rape and sexual assault.

In a series of videos shared on her Instagram Stories, Abbie began, “I don’t know if you’re anti-vax, guess you’re not because that would be awkward for a live artist.
“Imagine a woman in the industry who thinks it’s funny to make fun of rape and sexual assault victims. Rape jokes are no fun. Unless it’s your own sexual assault as a coping mechanism.
“Were you sexually assaulted Nikki? If you have, what do you do? If you haven’t, what do you do? Do you have a friend who has been raped? Because most people have.

Abbie continued, “So for you to sit there and make a joke comparing the life-saving vaccine to rape…
“I don’t know if you’re anti-vax, but it’s a ridiculous joke. Comparing the vaccine to rape is one of the most disgusting things I have seen in my entire life.
“Imagine being so bad at comedy that you have to make fun of rape victims. “
Furious: “Imagine a woman in the industry who thinks it’s funny making fun of rape and sexual assault victims,” Abbie said
The reality TV star then asked why Nikki was using her big platform and her fame as the host of Channel Ten’s Just For Laughs, to share such material.
“And being an actress in this industry, making fun of rape victims, while still being able to host a TV show… Maybe try to empathize,” the podcaster added.
Nikki posted a response to the outrage on her Instagram Stories Monday night, writing, “Dear Mob, you have been misinformed. Your feud is not with me. I’m on your team. Hottest, Casting couch survivor’.
