A former Big Brother contestant has been left furious after the Channel 5 show announced her death and paid tribute.
A message posted on the Twitter account read: “So sad to hear that Rebekah Shelton, who appeared in #BBUK 2009 as Rodrigo Lopes, has passed away aged just 32. Our thoughts are with her friends and family, from everyone here at Big Brother UK.”
Dozens of news reports emerged on Friday morning that Rebekah Shelton had died “unexpectedly”.
Devastated fans remembered her as one of the “most loveable housemates” as they mourned her “death.”
However, it turns out the reports were false, and Ms Shelton posted a furious video on Twitter.
She said: “I’m not dead!!!!!! Please stop spreading this news!!!!! My lawyer is already working on this and this person who wants to spoil my happiness is going to pay for it!!!”.
Can’t recall who made the first comment…..
