Gemma Collins to appear as special guest on Ru Paul's Drag Race UK

TOWIE star and self-confessed diva Gemma Collins will make an appearance on Ru Paul's Drag Race UK.

The 39-year-old Diva Forever reality icon is due on the new series of the show as a special guest.

Bosses of the hit show managed to convince Gemma to take part after secret talks that lasted weeks.

An insider from the show told The Mirror: "Everyone is thrilled Gemma agreed to be part of the new series. She is a dream signing."

Part of the show's Snatch Game episode, the fixture sees contestants impersonate various famous people.

It will be down to Gemma to decide who wins the challenge and pick between the queens.

"Snatch Game is all about having a laugh, so Gemma is perfect for it," the source added. "Last series saw contestant Cheryl Hole impersonate Gemma. So to now have Gemma taking part feels like things have gone full circle."

Filming has already taken place for the BBC Three show and it's expected to air in the new year.

Regular panellists Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr will be joined by a host of celebrities, including Gemma and Dawn French.

Ru Paul said of the exciting new season: "Season two will arrive with all the hope, joy, laughter and glitter that you have come to expect from our brilliant queens.

"We feel honoured that you’ve embraced our little show, and our only wish is that we can offer a smile at a time when we can all use it the most."

The first season of Drag Race UK saw The Vivienne take home the trophy, with Divina de Campo placing second.
