Big Brother star Rebekah Shelton not dead after ‘hack’

Latest news

    A video apparently posted by transgender Big Brother star Rebekah Shelton says she is not dead and was the victim of a social media hoax.

    Earlier a tweet from her verified account said she had died unexpectedly.

    The 32-year-old was on Big Brother in 2009 where – as Rodrigo Lopes – she finished fifth.
