Transgender lottery winner Melissa Ede has died aged 58 – days after she was rushed to hospital.

Her grieving fiancée, Rachel Nason, confirmed the sad news this morning that Melissa died suddenly on Saturday night, reports Hull Live.

Her cause of death isn’t known, however, only last week she was taken to A&E suffering from a suspected heart attack.

At the time she said: “You can be here one minute and gone the next.”

Her family have said funeral arrangements are being made and details will be released to the public at a later date.

The former taxi driver from Hull, who won £4million on a scratch card in 2017, was rushed to hospital with a suspected heart attack on bank holiday Monday.

Melissa – who said she was “Hull’s very own Katie Price” – had been struggling to breathe and had terrible chest pains.

She told The Mirror last Tuesday: “I really did think my time was up. My chest was crushing in. I thought, ‘This is it.’

“I told Rachel, ‘I love you so much. Always remember that.’”

An ambulance arrived five minutes after Rachel dialled 999.

After five hours at Hull Royal Infirmary, where she had blood tests, heart checks and X-rays on her lungs, Melissa got the all-clear.

At the time, doctors said it was not a heart attack.

“It makes you realise how precious life is,” Melissa had said.

She tragically added: “You can be here one minute and gone the next.”
