Michelle Visage set to make The Only Way Is Essex cameo
Michelle Visage is set to make a cameo in The Only Way Is Essex.
The Rupaul’s Drag Race judge will pop up in Essex to see pal Bobby Norris, it’s been reported.
According to The Sun, Michelle will appear to support Bobby as he launches a petition to criminalise online homophobia.
“The whole cast are really excited to have Michelle film scenes for Towie,” a source spilled. “Bobby had no idea she would be joining him for his Bobby’s Bill Party and was over the moon when she surprised him.
“He’s been on an emotional journey so far – and even visited parliament this week to discuss online homophobia. Having Michelle there as a support system was exactly what he needed.”
The new series of The Only Way Is Essex airs Sundays at 9PM on ITVBe.
Joining Bobby on this year’s TOWIE cast are Shelby Trible, Georgia Kousoulou, Chloe Meadows, Courtney Green, Chloe Sims, Dan Edgar, Tommy Mallet and Pete Wicks.
Also returning for the new series are James ‘Diags’ Bennewith, Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell, Sam Mucklow, Pete Wicks, Clelia Theodorou and Saffron Lempriere.
You can watch episodes online as they air or catch up on past instalments via the ITVHub.
Michelle’s TOWIE appearance comes ahead of the launch of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, to air on BBC Three.
Like the original, RuPaul herself will decide who is crowned the UK’s Next Drag Superstar, with fan favourite Michelle by her side as a permanent judge.
Drag Race superfans Alan Carr and Graham Norton have signed up as the resident rotating judges, alternating on a weekly basis – as Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews do on the American version.
Creator Rupaul Charles said: “I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens.
“And before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a ‘Royal-Mother-To-Be’ runway challenge.”
