The 2004 Big Brother winner in the United Kingdom, Nadia Almada, has publically announced that she would like to represent the United Kingdom in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, to be held in Germany in May next year.

Nadia Almada was born in Portugal, moved to the United Kingdom in 1996 to start a new life. Nadia entered the Big Brother house in 2004 as the first transexual housemate in the United Kingdom's version of the Endemol TV show, in which she went on to win, with 74% of the final votes, and won £63,500. Nadia informed none of her housemates about her past whilst in the house and explained to Big Brother that if she won the show, it would mean a lot to her because it means she had been accepted.

Soon after winning Big Brother, Nadia decided to record a song, which was released in December 2004, the song was a somewhat success for Nadia and reached number 27 in the UK Single chart. Six years later, Nadia has made the decision to publically announce her plans to represent the United Kingdom in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, with the backing of UK Broadcaster, Channel 4, the channel in which Big Brother is currently broadcast.
