Remember Big Brother's Alex Lee? She's finally got THAT tan off her face and looks unrecognisable.

The Big Brother 2011 housemate famously got quite the new look in the house during an iconic task that saw her have to say yes to everything Big Brother asked.

It ended in Alex getting covered in countless layers of fake tan but it wasn't for nothing, leaving the house with £30,000 in a twist despite not winning the series.

Fast forward to 2018 and Alex is looking very different.

The now brunette beauty this week opened up about her transformation as well as her sexuality, revealing to DIVA magazine that she is gay.

She said: "I was lucky enough to come into some money after Big Brother and that [my transformation] is what I spent it on. In a way it’s sad, because when I saw myself on telly, it wasn’t me. It wasn’t what I thought I looked like. It really affected me over the years with body dysmorphia.

"Using the money and getting surgery and changing the way I looked, it’s made me into the person I always wanted to be. It’s like a fresh start. 2018’s definitely my year."

Discussing her sexuality, Alex continued "I’ve known since I was younger that I’ve been attracted to women. It’s only quite recently that I was able to find the strength to come out and say, 'Look, I’m gay.'"

Alex went on to tell the publication she was currently single, saying: "I’ve dated a few girls, but nothing’s really stuck.

"I’m single and I’m not necessarily looking for anything serious. I’m more up for exploring different things and seeing what’s out there."

And Alex admitted she'd love to return to TV.

"I would absolutely love to do reality TV again but it would need to be something to appeal to the gay scene," she said. "We need a Love Island for gay people and a Take Me Out for women. I was watching Dinner Date last night and it was a lesbian version and I loved it."

Big Brother will be back on Channel 5 later this summer with both the 'civilian' series and 2018's second celebrity run.

No start dates have been set yet with the shows launching anywhere between May and September in previous years.
