Nicole, 52, told PEOPLE magazine: “My sister is my best friend, and I have a friend I’ve known since I was four who was my next-door neighbour.

“When I’ve been down on my knees and needed friends to get on planes or come and help me, that’s what they do. It’s a big thing to have had those friendships last for decades and decades.”
