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

When asked if she'd ever had regrets about transitioning, she said: "As soon as I left intensive care I felt that pain. My lawyer is already working on this and this person who wants to spoil my happiness is going to pay for it!"

However, Rebekah has posted a video to her Twitter account to explain that she is alive and well, and that a hacker gained access to her account and posted the tweet. I've been through hell today because someone used my Twitter account to write that stupid status about me.

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

Rebekah appeared on Big Brother back in 2009, as Rodrigo Lopes where she finished in fifth place in the final.

Numerous friends of the reality TV star believed she had "died unexpectedly", with many paying tribute.

On the show, she said: "I regretted it as soon as I had it".

The former Big Brother star spoke to Daily Star Online back in May, 2017 about the turning point when she knew her gender reassignment surgery was the right decision.

Of being abandoned after undergoing surgery, she said: "I wanted to kill myself, it was a nightmare".

"It was a big step to go full time as a woman".

'The only thing I wish is that that my family will learn to accept me.

"I saw that terrible thing between my legs and I started crying around the hospital saying, 'I regret, I regret.' I wanted to kill myself because it was a nightmare".
