For the first time in Drag Race Herstory

Michelle Visage made an entrance when it was her time to sashay down the runway, showing off a sparkly black bra and suit.

Michelle fronted the episode last night as Drag Race fan favourite Raven took over her seat. Visage announced: “Welcome to the main stage of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. Due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, RuPaul is unable to join us tonight.”

Fans of the BBC Three phenomenon were quick to show their support for Michelle when the news initially dropped of her stepping in for Ru.

‘Give the people what they want’

After the episode aired on BBC Three, drag fans from across the globe were quick to show their support for Michelle. Many fans tweeted out stating they would love to see Michelle front her own drag show.
