  • BB housemate Sophia Brown died age 30 in 2012

The Big Brother star's account had previously tweeted saying that the Brazilian woman had died "unexpectedly" and asked people to respect her family's privacy.

It's now unclear what caused the reality star's sudden death, but the sad news was announced on her Twitter page in the early hours of Friday morning.

In the video, she explained: "Hi everyone, I just want to kindly ask please stop spreading the rumour that I'm dead".

'This person can't accept the fact that I am happy and overcome all my problems and that I am finally living my life happy. "I'm on holiday... 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.

"Of course I wanted to, but I had to think, do I really want to go through all of this discrimination?" the reality star, who made an appearance on ITV show, Judge Rinder, continued.

She accompanied the video with the caption: "I'm not dead!".

While a third wrote: 'My prayers and thoughts to Rebekah and her entire family'.

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

She told OK! Magazine: "At one point before my surgery I had to leave home, and for six months of my life I turned to prostitution".

"I saw that frightful 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".
