'Britain's Next Top Model' contestant Talulah-Eve Brown - who was the show's first ever transgender contestant - is in talks to enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house
'Britain's Next Top Model' contestant Talulah-Eve Brown is in talks to enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The 22-year-old model - who was first ever transgender contestant on the beauty-based reality show - recently had her dreams of becoming the next big name in modelling dashed when she was booted from the Sky Living programme, but her life as a TV star is far from over as bosses at Channel 5 are reportedly keen to sign her up for a place in the next series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Talulah-Eve has all the elements of a great housemate.
"She has a fascinating backstory, plus she proved on 'Next Top Model' that she loves being the centre on attention and won't back down from confrontation.
"'Next Top Model' have given their blessing for her to appear on the show and she's not bound to stay off screen by any restrictive contracts, which has made her more appealing to 'CBB' bosses."
If Talulah-Eve does take part in the show, she'll be the third transgender contestant to appear on the celebrity version of the programme after boxing promoter Kellie Maloney, 62, and antiques expert Lauren Harries, 38, who took part in 2014 and 2013 respectively.
And a place in the famous house would be fitting for Talulah-Eve - who was born a male named Aaron - as she was inspired to transition after reading about Nadia Almada, who became the first transgender person to win the regular series of 'Big Brother' when she took part in 2004.
Talulah-Eve said: "Growing up was difficult for me. I didn't understand what I was - there was no education about it.
"I didn't understand what I was, my whole life, pretty much. Then I read a story about Nadia from Big Brother and I thought, 'Oh my god, this is me'."
