Big Brother ‘Barbie girl’ Alex Rose Lee comes out as gay as she unveils new look
Big Brother ‘Barbie girl’ Alex Lee has come out as gay.
And the reality star, who appeared on the show back in 2011, looks very different to how you’ll remember her.
Alex, 26, has ditched her fake tan, and her peroxide blonde hair – as well as spending £60,000 on surgery to transform her look.
And now that the Geordie babe is happier in her skin, it seems she’s finally ready to accept every aspect of herself.
Revealing her sexuality, she said: "I’ve known since I was younger that I’ve been attracted to women."
She added to Diva magazine: "It’s only quite recently that I was able to find the strength to come out and say, ‘Look, I’m gay’."
Talking about how she came out to her mum, she added: "It wasn’t until I was at Gran Canaria Pride that I was like, ‘You know what? It just feels so great to be around so many strong women and men.’ When I arrived back to the UK, my mum picked me up at the airport and I said, ‘Look, I need to tell you something.’
"And I just said it in the car park. She was just made up about it. I think she knew anyway, but I hadn’t said it out loud and being able to say it I feel so much better. I felt like a huge weight off my shoulders."
Alex looks totally different from her Big Brother days.
Back then, she had bleach blonde hair, a bright orange tan, and dressed religiously in pink clothing.
But in new snaps on her Twitter account, she has much more natural-looking brunette locks, a more natural skin tone and a sculpted face following surgery.
In the past, she’s openly talked about having Botox, facial fillers and lip fillers, among other procedures.
She decided to change her look after "coming into some money" after her stint in Big Brother.
Alex, who dated fellow housemate Tom O’Connell after leaving the show, said: "I was lucky enough to come into some money after Big Brother and that’s 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."
Alex once shared a meme of herself someone had created.
It featured before and after pictures of her alongside the phrase, ‘No one is ugly, just broke’.
