Big Brother legend unrecognisable 18 years after winning show | The Sun

BIG Brother legend Nadia Almada looks totally different 18 years after winning an all-time classic series of the reality show.

The Portuguese reality star, 45, was Big Brother's first ever transgender contestant when she walked into the house in 2004.

Nadia was loud and proud, wearing her heart on her sleeve, and often paraded around the house with big black hair and in glam outfits.

She quickly became very popular with viewers thanks to her fiery temper and hilarious humour.

Nowadays Nadia looks very different with long flowing blonde hair.

The hair stylist was pictured yesterday doing a spot of Christmas shopping in a stylish long grey coat, white shirt and chunky boots.

Wearing a black brimmed hat, Nadia had rolls of wrapping paper tucked in her bag as she walked alone.

Back in her Big Brother glory days Nadia's Diary Room appearances proved very emotional.

She was very worried the UK public would judge her for keeping her transgender identity a secret.

Of course, that only made her triumphant exit even more emotional – especially as she scooped 74 per cent of the vote.

When Davina announced she was the winner, beating Jason Cowan and Daniel Bryan, she screamed with joy.

That series was the one with the infamous Fight Night.

The furious display happened after contestants Emma Greenwood and Michelle Bass, who housemates thought had been booted out, returned and let everyone know they'd seen all that had been said about them.

One thing led to another – especially given there was booze involved – and things became so heated security had to calm things down.

After her win, Nadia released a single called A Little Bit of Action.

And in 2010 Nadia had another stay in the famous house as part of Ultimate Big Brother, where she was pitted against other previous contestants including Makosi Musambasi and Josie Gibson.

The late rapper Coolio was also there, with Nadia and Gangster's Paradise star having several blazing rows.

These days it seems Nadia is much calmer, living life as a hair stylist in London.
