Transgender model Talulah-Eve in talks for Celebrity Big Brother - report

Model Talulah-Eve Brown is reportedly in discussions with TV executives to appear on the next Celebrity Big Brother.

Former Britain's Next Top Model hopeful Talulah-Eve Brown is reportedly in talks to star on Celebrity Big Brother.

The 22-year-old made history when she became the first transgender beauty to compete on the U.K. modelling show, which counts Abbey Clancy and Paul Sculfor among its judges.

But after she was deemed to have refused to take on the judges' comments about her photoshoots, Talulah-Eve was axed from the competition on last week's (end23Apr17) show.

Her time on the small screen could just be beginning, however, as The Sun reports she is in discussions to potentially enter the Celebrity Big Brother (CBB) house this autumn.

"Talulah-Eve has all the elements of a great housemate," a source told the newspaper. "She has a fascinating backstory, plus she proved on Next Top Model that she loves being the centre of 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."

According to The Sun, Talulah-Eve was recently rejected for a spot in the jungle on the next series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

But if she signed up for CBB, she would be the third transgender contestant in the show's history, following in the footsteps of Lauren Harries in 2013 and Kellie Maloney in 2014.

Talulah-Eve is also a big fan of the non-celebrity version of the reality show, with 2004 winner Nadia Almada the inspiration for her own transition.

"Growing up was difficult for me. I didn't understand what I was - there was no education about it," she said in a recent interview. "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.'"

Talulah-Eve, who was born Aaron, began gender reassignment surgery in 2014.
