Nadia claims appearing on 'Ultimate Big Brother' has ''ruined'' her life and left her suicidal, after she received abuse from members of the public

Nadia claims returning to the Big Brother house has "ruined" her life and left her suicidal.

The transgender former winner of the reality TV show said she has received abuse from members of the public since being evicted from 'Ultimate Big Brother' on Friday (03.09.10) and that the show was edited to make her look like a "villain".

She told the Daily Star Sunday: "I want to end it all. I just feel my life isn't worth living any more. I can't carry on living the way I feel. I'm in the gutter and I'm completely distraught. Going back on 'Big Brother' has ruined my life. I was the victim in that house but I was shown to be the villain.

"I hate my life so much right now and sometimes ending it all is the only solution. I'm at the lowest point I've ever been

"My car has had eggs thrown all over it and I've had horrible notes sent to me, calling me a b***h. I've had to start avoiding people and stop answering calls.

"I feel betrayed by Channel 4. There was no loyalty from them, no duty of care. They failed to protect me."

The winner of series five of the show added that since she entered the house she had been bullied by rapper Coolio - who walked out of the show last week after numerous arguments with her – but the programme's editors deliberately left out his actions to make her look like a bully.

She added: "Coolio targeted me on the first night and he wouldn't leave me alone. He kept asking about my gender status and he humiliated me over it. If it had been a racial slur they would have shown it but because it was against a transsexual they edited it out.

"They made it look like I wanted to leave over a pair of shoes but the truth is I was being bullied."

Nadia said she is now seeking a public apology from 'Big Brother', contacting lawyers and complaining to TV watchdog Ofcom.
