Big Brother 10 contestant Sophia Brown has reportedly died at just 30 years of age.

Although the cause of her death hasn’t been verified, the bubbly banker suffered from Lupus since childhood and this is thought to be linked to her untimely death this week. News of Brown’s death broke on Twitter as fellow contestants shared their condolences.

During her short stint in the Big Brother house, Sophia clashed with fellow housemate Saffia , which played a big part in her being voted off after just eight days in the house.
