Nicole and Abi took some time out from their rehearsals earlier this week and hit the lanes together, meaning the girls could really bond.
Dressed in a casual white top, jeans and a woolly hat with the word 'Brooklyn' knitted into it, Nicole looked seriously cool for her afternoon at the lanes.
Abi, 19, also kept her outfit casual and cute, opting for a black peplum top, jeans and a flower headband.
Nicole is making a concerted effort to really get to know her girls' personalities this year.
Earlier this week, Nicole took Hannah Barrett and Tamera Foster on a shopping spree to River Island and treated them to some new clothes.
The weekends are seriously stressful for all the contestants, so it's great to see Nicole treating them to a bit of fun and downtime during the week!
