QUEENS FOR THE NIGHT: FIRST LOOK AT CELEBRITY DRAG TRANSFORMATIONS
For one night only, a cast of celebrities will channel their inner drag queens and unearth the divas within in a fabulous competition like no other.
Hosted by drag superfan Lorraine Kelly, she will be joined by our judging panel, Spice Girl and pop icon Melanie C, stand up comedian Rob Beckett, World famous Drag artist Courtney Act and star of Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Layton Williams who will offer their thoughts on our famous novices as they attempt to master this flamboyantly entertaining skill.
This one off TV special will see Coronation Street favourite Simon Gregson, fitness icon Mr Motivator MBE, Love Island star Chris Hughes, Union J's George Shelley, actor Adam Woodyatt and England rugby star Joe Marler, unleashing their drag alter-egos as they attempt to go head to head to be crowned the winning Queen.
This primetime celebrity drag contest pairs each wannabe queen with their very own drag mentor, as they attempt to master this uniquely difficult craft.
The celebrity wannabes will not only have to perfect wearing the highest of the heels but also hone one of the distinctive disciplines that each drag artist will expertly enact, from singing, dancing, lip syncing, impression, comedy or Dragic! (Drag magic).
Performing live in front of a panel of expert judges and a live studio audience only one celebrity can be crowned the ultimate winner.
The show will see some of the most successful Drag Queens in the business become mentors to each of the celebrities. Blu Hydrangea, Kitty Scott-Claus, La Voix, Myra DuBois, Asttina Mandella, Margo Marshall will be using their expert knowledge to guide and teach our famous students, as they prepare and perfect their drag personas.
Viewers will witness every step of the process, from mastering the killer heels, fine tuning their comic timing and bringing to life a breathtaking character through costume and make up.
Lorraine Kelly says, “I’m so excited to be hosting this show. I am a huge fan of Drag and can not wait to see a host of well known stars embrace this uniquely wonderful and uplifting skill. It's a show that will have humour, warmth and above all lots and lots of glamour, I can’t wait to get started.”
