Transgender lottery winner Melissa Ede passed away 1.5 years after her win


Melissa Ede, a former Hull taxi driver known for appearing on The Jeremy Kyle Show and for winning £4 million on a National Lottery scratch card, suddenly died aged 58. Her fiancée Rachel said Ede had been hospitalized with chest pains and died in a hospital. During her last days Ede complained that it was very hard for her to breathe and called an ambulance. The doctors said everything was clear and she seemed alright, so they took her to the hospital for more tests. Ede’s family have said that funeral arrangements are being made. As of yet, no cause of death has been made public. Ede was a well-known figure in her local Hull, and described herself as a “viral video” and “reality star” on her Facebook page. She regularly shared videos to her popular YouTube channel, and had made a series of daytime TV appearances. In February 2016, she took part in a Jeremy Kyle Show segment titled “My transgender love rival is trying to steal my husband.”
