RuPaul’s Drag Race star Michelle Visage is set to sign for BBC's Strictly Come Dancing , according to reports.

Show bosses are looking to reach out to new audiences and feel 50-year-old Michelle would be an outrageous addition to the line-up.

RuPaul's Drag Race has a cult following amongst millennials and Michelle has become an LGBT icon during her eight years as a judge on the show.

Never shy of a word, Michelle also made a big impact on British viewers during her time in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

A Strictly source told The Sun that Michelle would be a "very strategic signing," as she has a "huge following, especially in the gay community."

Show bosses are hoping that Michelle would give the judging panel a run for their money by "clapping back at any of the harsh comments," and giving viewers some "great TV.”

Michelle, whose real name is Michelle Lynn Shupack, had her DD breast implants removed, in the hope it would help her cope with the debilitating autoimmune condition, Hashimoto’s disease.

Speaking about it, Michelle said: “I feel strong and healthy and for the first time.

"I feel like I am doing something to regain and reclaim my life and health.

"I want to be here for a long time to be with my children, my husband and to see my grandchildren.

"And my breast implants were certainly impeding my chances of that."
