Rebekah appeared on the reality TV show back in 2009 as Rodrigo Lopes.

"Of course I wanted to, but I had to think, do I really want to go through all of this discrimination?" the reality star, who made an appearance on ITV show, Judge Rinder, continued.

On the show, she said: "I regretted it as soon as I had it. I was not born wanting to be a transsexual, or a boy, or a straight boy, or a girl", she previously said of her transition.

Shelton began living as a woman in 2012, after successfully undergoing gender transition surgery in 2012.

And fans of the actress and reality star were quick pay tribute to Rebekah and send their condolences to her family.

"At first you have to face yourself as it's not easy to be a different person, or what's considered different".

Sending all my love to her family and friends.

She also said she had felt forced to leave home before undergoing her surgery and turned to sex work for six months.

"I am the happiest I've ever been in myself, but I lost so much along the way", she told OK! magazine at the time. I'm not sure what I would do if I could go back in time'.
