RuPaul's Drag Race UK star Baga Chipz reportedly lands an acting role on the new series of Channel 4 school drama Ackley Bridge.

RuPaul's Drag Race UK favourite Baga Chipz has reportedly landed a role on the new series of Channel 4's Ackley Bridge.

The drag queen was one of the most popular contestants on the first series of the UK version, finishing in third place, and has since appeared on a string of reality shows including Celebrity MasterChef, The Celebrity Circle and Celebrity Karaoke Club.

According to The Sun, Baga has recently been filming a mystery part on school-set drama Ackley Bridge - although details of the character, including whether Baga will be in drag, are currently unknown.

"Baga caught the attention of Ackley producers, having appeared on a variety of reality shows since RuPaul," a source told the newspaper. "But while she loves a bit of low-rent telly, she also wants to prove there's more than just big, brash Baga.

"Ackley Bridge's bosses were impressed with what they saw from Baga on set. And having first been on set last week, she'll now be back for more in January when she will film again.

"Her character is being kept a closely-guarded secret for now, but no doubt we'll be hearing more in due course."

Filming of series five of Ackley Bridge has been underway since September ahead of an expected transmission on Channel 4 next spring.
