Rebekah Shelton is NOT dead

Rebekah Shelton

A tweet from her official Twitter account on Thursday said the former reality TV star had "died unexpectedly" at the age of 32.

Taking to Twitter she deleted the previous tweet in which her death was announced and replaced it with "I'm not dead!".

She told fans: "I just want to kindly ask, please stop spreading this news that I'm dead because obviously I'm not".

THEGAYUK.com reached out for comment.

As a second added: "God, how very bad!"

Another replied to the message and said they would remember her as "one of the most lovable BB housemates".

"Big Brother" fans will best remember Brazil-born Rebekah - who took part in the show under her former name, Rodrigo Lopes - for her unabashed love of the Queen, as well as the United Kingdom in general, and brief romance with fellow housemate Charlie Drummond.

"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.
