Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock is set to become a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
The singer will be sashaying on to the panel in series three of the BBC contest.
An insider said: “Producers have wanted Leigh-Anne to be a guest judge for a long time, so they were thrilled she was finally able to do it.
“Everything was very hush-hush and she wasn’t able to tell many people she was doing it.”
Leigh-Anne, who recently revealed she is pregnant, filmed a guest stint on the show in Manchester earlier this year.
It saw her joining show boss RuPaul and regular Michelle Visage on the panel.
And producers were thrilled with how great she was.
The insider continued: “Leigh-Anne is a massive fan of the show, so she was the perfect guest judge. She was in her element. And, of course, the contestants loved getting to meet her.”
The BBC is set to make an official announcement about Leigh-Anne joining the panel later this year.
She is just one of the big names they secured to be a guest judge. Show bosses are determined to make this new series of Drag Race UK the best yet.
According to sources they have a string of surprises up their sleeves to keep fans hooked.
The series will air on BBC Three later this year.
And it can’t come soon enough!
Drag Race UK is the latest high-profile project taken on by Leigh-Anne.
