Born on the 26 October 1982, Nicola is 37 years old – hitting headlines in late 2019 announcing it was this age she was going to retire from boxing, as continuing would put her at risk of serious injury.
She announced in an open letter: "I've been advised that any further impact to my eye would most likely lead to irreparable damage and permanent vision loss."
Nicola is starring in Celebrity Gogglebox along with her girlfriend, beauty blogger, Ella Baig, and their amazing American Pitbull – and if you follow either of them on Instagram, you'll know just how loved up they are!
They've even given their American Pitbull, named Brooklyn, his own Instagram @brooklynbullylife.
Ella is 21 and you can follow her at @ella.baig.
They don't speak publicly about their relationship but its thought they've been together since the summer of 2018 and live together.
As they're both from Leeds we wouldn't be surprised if they've settled down there.
Nicola had previously been engaged to fellow boxer, Marlen Esparza, but the pair announced they'd split after 16 months of engagement in April 2018.
According to various sources, Nicola's net worth is in the millions and, considering she's one of the most successful British athletes of all time, we're not surprised!
Now she's retired, Nicola's expressed an interest in acting, telling BBC Sport: "I have worked on various things like Coronation Street and Emmerdale and I played myself in Waterloo Road.
"I'm looking forward to taking up those opportunities I had to miss while I was boxing.
"Ideally, I would love to be playing the main lead in a movie, so you will have to watch this space."
