Baga Chipz: 'I would be a laughing stock on Strictly Come Dancing'

RuPaul's Drag Race star Baga Chipz reacts to reports linking her with a stint on this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Baga Chipz has admitted that she would fear being "a laughing stock" if she were to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

Earlier this week it was reported that the RuPaul's Drag Race star - known for her "much betta!" catchphrase - is being considered by producers for a stint on the ballroom contest.

The move comes as the BBC looks to freshen up the format by featuring different kinds of pairings - and should Baga sign up, she would become the first drag queen to compete in the show's history.

Talking about Strictly to The Sun, she said: "I get offers every day. I would do it but I probably would be the laughing stock of the show.

"At the end of the day, like everything I do, I'd give it my all. I think it would be marvellous, me coming down from the sky, or me coming out in a big box of chips.

"I could do 'Under The Sea' with all the fish. I'd be like The Little Mermaid but I'd eat the fish instead of talking to them.

"But when it comes to full choreography and full routines, I'm no Pussycat Doll, I'm more of a Nolan sister."

Baga, who has previously appeared on The Celebrity Circle and Celebrity MasterChef, then teased: "I've got a big, absolutely massive, massive, massive, massive, massive show coming out, but I can't say anything. That will probably be the biggest show of my life."

The new series of Strictly begins on BBC One at the end of September.
