Roddy Alves (born Rodrigo Alves, July 30, 1983)[1] is a Brazilian-British television personality noted for having undergone dozens of plastic surgeries in an attempt to alter her appearance.

Biography[edit]

Alves was born on July 30, 1983 in São Paulo, Brazil to her British father.[4] When she was young, her grandfather bought her Barbie dolls and allowed her to dress. She feels people should not be defined by gender.[5] Alves moved to London at age nineteen.[4]

As of January 2018, Alves has spent just over £500,000 (equivalent to $512,784 in 2019) undergoing 103 cosmetic procedures, including injections, 51 of which were plastic surgeries.[6][1] Alves has undergone liposuction, had gel filler injected into shoulders, biceps, and triceps, applies Minoxidil topically, has had hair implants and a number of facelifts, wears tinted contact lenses, and has had eleven rhinoplasties.[4]

On 16 August 2018, Alves appeared on the UK television show Celebrity Big Brother as a celebrity housemate. After using the racial slur "nigger" in a conversation over the type of sexual partner she preferred, Alves was given a "final warning" by producers, that if she repeated the language she would be evicted from the house. The incident garnered over 1,000 complaints to regulator OfCom.[7] After a further incident, Alves was expelled from the show in the early hours of the morning on the tenth day.[8][9]

In March 2019, Alves released a song with Italian plastic surgeon Giacomo Urtis called "Plastic World".

On 4 January 2020, Alves came out as transgender after three months of living in privacy.[10]
