Michelle Visage is our ninth celebrity for Strictly 2019!
Michelle Visage is an American singer, television host, radio DJ, and media personality.
Michelle said: “Getting to do Strictly in my favorite place on Earth is an actual DREAM! I'm so excited to show that being 50 doesn't mean life stops. Things may not work like they did when I was 20, but 50 also means “FABULOUS!” There are plenty of women like me out there who still “got it” and we still “plan to use it!” so slap on the sequins, point me to the dance floor and watch me Paso my Doble!”
Michelle is best known for her role as a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race since season three and on all seasons of the spin-off show RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars. Michelle will appear on RuPaul's Drag Race UK, which is set to air on BBC Three this October. Michelle was also on the fifteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother finishing in fifth place. Most recently, she has appeared as a judge on the first two seasons of Ireland's Got Talent. This year, Michelle made her West End debut as ‘Miss Hedge’ in Everybody's Talking About Jamie.
She joins footballer David James, comedian Chris Ramsey, EastEnders star Emma Barton, social media star Saffron Barker, actress Catherine Tyldesley, BBC Breakfast's Mike Bushell, CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual and Viscountess Emma Weymouth in our line-up this year.
