Deana Uppal infuriated 'Big Brother' housemate Luke Anderson after claiming she used to be a man
Deana Uppal was blasted by her 'Big Brother' housemate Luke Anderson after claiming she used to be a man.
The 23-year-old beauty played a prank on Becky Hannon by telling her she'd had a sex change, but the joke didn't go down too well.
Deana told Becky: "I used to be a man. I thought you knew. Thought you'd read up on me. I don't want to make you uncomfortable, I thought you knew."
Becky then ran to tell her housemates, saying: "Deana just told me she's a full-on man. She has had surgery and everything."
Transgender Luke - who is making the transition from being a woman to man - was initially speechless before confronting Deana in a furious rage about her insensitivity.
He said: "Why are you f***ing joking about something like that? It's not funny. Don't you think it's a little bit insensitive?
"You could have picked anything but that. I find it hard.
"It's not funny to me, it's really close to home for me."
Deana insisted she wasn't trying to cause offence.
She said: "Oh no! Please don't be offended. Please don't be insulted. It was just a prank."
Deana and Lydia Louisa are both up for eviction this week.
