Who is Michelle Visage?
Michelle is probably best known for being a judge on Ru Paul’s Drag Race and has been since series 3.
She’s also recognised for being one-third of girl group Seduction in the late 80’s.
Michelle comes from New Jersey, USA and is 51 years old in 2019.
The moment Michelle appeared on Towie
It’s been 7 years since a celebrity has made an appearance on Towie and now Michelle has stepped foot on the scene.
Bobby Norris was setting up for his party when Michelle sashayed onto set.
Michelle said: “Yaz slid into my DM’s on Instagram, and she told me what you were doing.”
Michelle said that Yazmin Oukhellou had filled her in on Bobby’s bill and just popped by to show some support.
Honestly, I’ve had the most surreal two days. I’ve been at the houses of parliament and now I’ve got Michelle Visage stood here for my party.
Michelle said: “I’m so proud of you for what you’re doing. What you’re doing is setting a precedent. You’ll save lives with this, Bobby.”

Why was Michelle Visage on Towie?
Our screens were graced with the icon that is Michelle Visage as Bobby was in the process of getting a billed passed in parliament.
Episode 5 saw Bobby head to parliament and later tell the rest of the cast that he’s launched a campaign against homophobic bullying on the internet.
Bobby said: “I’m sure a lot of you know that I’ve had a really tough few months when it comes to social media and people trolling me just because of my sexuality. I don’t choose to be a gay man, I am a gay man. I would really appreciate it if every single one of you could sign my petition.”
