Lauren Harries made a memorable appearance on the Channel 4 show Naked Attraction two years ago.
The 43-year-old transition star has had an eventful roller coaster of his life.
But how did she get famous and what happened when she appeared on Naked Attraction?
How did Naked Attraction star Lauren Harries get famous?
Born in 1978 as James Harries, the boy showed an early talent for discovering antiques.
From the age of five he bought and sold antiques and his often quirky dress sense attracted television characters.
In the late 1980s, he was a regular on the BBC One chat show, Wogan, where his flair for elegant clothes brought him into conflict with fellow 10-year-olds.

When asked on another chat show if he thought he was from the past, he replied, “I thought I was from the past because I love antiques.
“But I can’t have come from the past because I’m so knowledgeable, so I must have come from the future.”
He also stated that he wanted to become the country’s youngest prime minister.
When did James move to Lauren?
The Harries family got into hard times during the recession in the late 1980s and sued the government.
James’ father was then accused of setting fire to and burning the family’s costume shop.
He was sentenced to five and a half years in prison for insurance fraud.
In the years that followed, James suffered from depression and agoraphobia, which led to an attempted suicide.
There was further upheaval for the Harrys when James changed his name to Lauren at the age of 19.
And then, a year later, Lauren underwent gender reassignment surgery and became a woman.
However, she stated in an interview with The guard 2001, which her mother approved.
“My mother noticed that I was a girl, that was the thing. . . and so we behaved like sisters, more like mother and daughter.
“We are really sisters. And we’ll be in Bella magazine together – we’re both blonde. “
Again in the spotlight
After she changed, Lauren became a hot commodity again.
In 2006 she appeared in the Channel 5 series Trust Me – I’m A Beauty Therapist and in 2013 in Celebrity Big Brother on the same channel.
Lauren got into trouble on day eight while trying to share some of her medication with competitor Courtney Stodden.
Despite a tick from Big Brother and a warning, she finished third in the competition.
Charlotte Crosby was chosen as the winner.
What happened to Lauren in Naked Attraction?
In 2019, Lauren raised more eyebrows when she appeared on the controversial Channel 4 dating show Naked Attraction.
The then 41-year-old stripped everything to get Ryan’s attention.
However, when he told her that she was “too old” for him, she had a fit of anger.
“You could have had the goods, but you don’t have them now,” she railed.
“You won’t get my butt now.
