Transgender Big Brother star wrongly reported as DEAD after hoax reports

"We ask that you respect the family's privacy at this time".

Her death was announced via Twitter on Friday morning, with a message posted to her official account by loved ones.

'Please stop spreading this news that I am dead because I am obviously not, ' she said in her hotel room. "My lawyer is already working on this and this person who wants to spoil my happiness is going to pay for it!"

"No way I remember when she was on Big Brother before her transition and I and she was one of my favourite ever people to have ever entered the big brother house and I've watch her transformation during the years it's so sad rest in peace", posted one shocked fan.

"I'm on holiday. I'm in Arabia and I'm not dead".

The transgender reality star came to fame through Big Brother, and has spoken at length about her transition.

On Rebekah's Twitter profile, she wrote her in bio: "Reality star, Big Brother UK as Rodrigo".

She recalled, "There was a turning point - when I met someone in Brazil four years ago".

"I've been through the worst three years of my life, been through 16 surgeries, suffered so much".

Rebekah went on to say that she is now on holidays.

Big Brother star Rebekah Shelton has taken to Twitter to correct reports of her death after her account was allegedly hacked before a tweet was sent saying she had died "unexpectedly on Wednesday (10 January) night".

Sending all my love to her family and friends. I'm not sure what I would do if I could go back in time'.

"The only thing I wish is that that my family will learn to accept me", she told the publication. "It's different when you are having fun with your friends in the clubs, to changing your whole life and facing the rejection or acceptance of the world".

Her last tweet, sent almost two months ago, featured a black and white picture of herself.
