Miriam's glad to be recognised
Last updated 20 February 2004

Miriam

Yet another reality show is to hit our screens this weekend, but this one has courted more controversy than most.

'There's Something About Miriam' features six blokes living together in Ibiza and competing for a date with a beautiful 22 year-old South American model called Miriam.

The catch is that Miriam was actually born a man and is still a pre-op transsexual.

The six blokes cometing for Miriam's affection

The guys in the show hit the roof when they found out - they sued the show and tried to stop it being aired, but they've now settled out of court and the show starts on Sky One on Sunday evening.

Miriam came into Radio 1 to talk to us, and fooled a lot of the blokes - she's very attractive.

Although she says she was upset for a few days about the court case, she told us she's enjoying the fact people have started to recognise her:

"When I'm walking on the streets they're like 'Oh my God that's Miriam, she really does look like a girl.' And I'm like 'yeah…' Yeah, they come up and they're like 'oh my God are you Miriam?' And I'm like 'yes, yes,' 'oh, you're beautiful, yeah!' I'm like 'OK, thank you.' And then they go and they're like 'oh she really does look like a girl…'"
