Big Brother 10 contestant Rodrigo Lopes has undergone gender-swap surgery - but he's not the only Big Brother man who is now a woman


After living as a woman for two years, former Big Brother contestant Rodrigo Lopes is now officially 100 per cent female, and goes by the name of Rebekah Shelton.

The BB star, who came fifth on series 10 of the reality show in 2009, completed her transition after undergoing gender reassignment surgery in Brazil.

Sharing her news on Twitter, the 28-year-old said: ‘I now have a beautiful vagina with pleasure, depth, elasticity and normal humidity.’


Despite the, um, ever-so-slightly vulgar tweet, there’s no denying that Rebekah looks hot-to-trot with her long blonde locks and trim bod.

Rebekah’s successful sex change comes after a turbulent couple of years: in 2013 the reality star revealed that she’d turned to sex work in order to fund her pricey gender-swap op, and earlier this year ‘Rodrigo’ fell into a coma after discovering a life-threatening brain tumour.

But Rebekah isn’t the only BB transexual. Check out these other he/she stars…

Nadia Almada

Remember Portugese Nadia?

The BB 5 winner, born Jorge Leodoro, kept her transexuality a secret whilst in the house, instead choosing to confess everything after walking away with a whopping £63,500 in prize money.

At the time the 36-year-old said: ‘It was very hard because there were times that I felt I had to lie a little bit and I didn’t want to lie at all.

‘There were moments when I felt I would just come clean and be honest about it.’

Lauren Harries

Lauren Harries, 36, began life as James Harries, the child star who shot to fame in the late 80s as a bric-a-brac collecting antiques expert.

Aged just 22, Lauren underwent a full sex-change operation and began campaigning to take transexuals into the mainstream. The 2013 CBB housemateclaims to have slept with Russell Brand back in 2006 admitting that ‘although Russell thinks he’s Jesus – believe me girls, he’s not.’ Ouch!

Kemal Shahin

There’s no way that ANYONE could EVER forget diva-of-the-house, Kemal.

The BB 6 contestant insisted on wearing heels throughout the entire series and since being evicted, has undergone sex reassignment surgery and apparently now goes by the name of Zuleyka. Who knew eh!?

Kellie Maloney

This year’s Celebrity Big Brother star, formerly known as Frank Maloney, revealed she was having a sex change back in August.

The 61-year-old ex-boxing promoter claimed that she had always wanted to act and dress like a woman, revealing that, ‘living with the burden any longer would have killed me’.
