One of the queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK could well take part in Strictly Come Dancing 2020.


Speaking to The Times, a source close to the popular ballroom dancing programme said: “Executives think a drag queen would be the best way to introduce change slowly to the programme’s loyal audience, many of whom have watched it since it began in 2004.”

Not surprisingly, Drag Race’s three finalists, Baga Chipz, Divina De Campo and ultimate winner The Vivienne, are thought to be in pole position for the Strictly 2020 slot.


News of the possible development comes just weeks after the BBC received nearly 200 complaints about Strictly’s first ever same-sex dance routine.

Drag Race judge Michelle Visage has been one of the contestants on the current series of Strictly, the final of which takes place a week on Saturday.
