Luke Anderson has told some of his fellow 'Big Brother' housemates he used to be a woman and said they were welcome to ask questions about his past
Luke Anderson has told his fellow 'Big Brother' housemates he used to be a woman.
The 31-year-old chef - who was born a woman before having a sex change - confided in Adam Kelly, Sara McLean and Lydia Louisa about his past before telling them they could ask him anything about it.
He said: "I was literally born a woman and I had gender reassignment. If you ever want to ask me anything about it, just ask."
Sara later told him she wouldn't tell anyone else unless he was ready to.
She said: "Cross my heart, I would never ever do that to you. I think you're amazing. There's some amazing characters in here, I'm really happy."
Luke - who is married - has not told all his housemates on the Channel 5 reality show and admitted he was scared about going into the hot tub with everyone because of the scars from his surgery.
Speaking to Big Brother in the Diary Room, Luke said: 'I'm feeling a bit weird. There's a lot of big characters out there and I feel like I've got this massive secret. I'd love to get in the hot tub but I'm a bit dubious.
"I was born a female and I've got big scars on my chest, and I'm not ripped like the other guys so I'm really self-conscious."
