Fans took to Twitter to pay tribute to the star.

The death of 32-year-old transgender Big Brother contestant Rebekah Shelton was widely reported on Friday, but Shelton is very much alive.

'Our thoughts are with her friends and family, from everyone here at Big Brother UK'. Please stop spreading this news! Please stop spreading this news!

"I've been through hell today because someone has used my Twitter account to make a stupid status about me".

Rebekah captioned the shocking video: "I'm not dead!".

It is unclear who sent the tweet.

The fake news was announced on her Twitter yesterday evening.

One message said: "Glad to hear you're well!"

Brazilian-native Rebekah, who underwent a sex change in 2012, reportedly spoke of feeling isolated recently after turning to prostitution.

Apparently her experience with surgery hasn't always been entirely positive, and during an appearance on Judge Rinderin 2016 she revealed that she'd be struggling to cope after botched breast surgery.

"He saw me as a woman, the person I am".

The message, purporting to confirm her death, has now been deleted from Rebekah's Twitter account. I started crying in the corridor saying, "I regret it, I regret it". It's a hard decision. It's not easy to be a different person. Then you have to face your family, society, jobs - because people don't give you opportunities. I hope I will wake up soon and this was all just a bad dream.

Speaking previously about his transition, she said: "The only thing I wish is that that my family will learn to accept me".

She also said she had felt forced to leave home before undergoing her surgery and turned to sex work for six months.

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