Big Brother legend Nadia Almada strips off to a swimsuit to sunbathe in Spain 19 years after winning the show | The Sun

BIG Brother favourite Nadia Almada stripped to a plunging orange swimsuit as she soaked up the sunshine on holiday.

The 2004 show star, 46, was seen in the striking one-piece on a beach in Marbella just days before Big Brother's official ITV re-boot.

Earlier this year, the reality TV star looked unrecognisable as she switched up her look.

Now Nadia, who works as a hair stylist in London after quitting fame for a normal job, has showed off her new style on the beach.

She looked blissfully happy as she paddled in the sea, donning a pair of sunglasses and pulling her blonde hair into an up-do.

After taking a dip, she headed to her sun-lounger on the beach covered in a blue towel.

Following her tanning session, Nadia pulled on a stunning beach dress cover-up in the same orange shade.

The maxi dress featured neon leopard print and full sleeves to protect the star from the sunshine.

She was seen strolling beach-side in a pair of heels and donning a black clutch bag emblazoned with the phrase 'Whatcha gonna do.'

The Portuguese reality star 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.

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

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

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.
