Michelle Visage defeated by Katie Price in Celebrity Big Brother final
RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Michelle Visage has come fifth in Celebrity Big Brother. Former glamour model Katie Price was named the winner with controversial The Sun columnist Katie Hopkins coming second.
Speaking to host Emma Willis, after she had been evicted Visage said:” Katie Price does have a legion of fans which is what brought her in here. But if she came in top three, that would kill me!” Visage appears to be very much alive despite the Price not only coming in the top three, but actually winning the reality TV contest.
Hopkins thanked Big Brother for the inclusion of Perez Hilton: “Thank you for putting him [Perez Hilton] in there,” she said “If he had not been such a twat, that would have been me.”
Earlier in the series, Michelle Visage attacked gay blogger Perez Hilton. After he had danced around the garden topless, ‘dry humping’ the furniture while making sexual noises, she said: “What we just witnessed is an outrage. [Perez] sets our community back fifty years.
“He’s an embarrassment, I do not want people judging the gay community on this ass.”
After Perez Hilton put Visage up for eviction, she told other housemates: “He’s looking for fans. I said ‘Do you not know how you look? Fans? You’ve done nothing but performing for cameras, doing soliloquies in the garden. You’re not going to get a fan.’
Presenter Jonathan Ross revealed last April that he is working on a UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race including Visage, and drag artist RuPaul backed the plans in July.
Her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother has re-ignited rumours of plans to raise her profile in the UK, ahead of another push to launch the series.
Jonathan Ross confirmed that he is still “knocking on doors” to find a home for the series this week, saying: “What I wanted to say was one: that there’s nothing happening right now, and two: I’m still working on it and talking about it!
“I’m a big big fan of the show. I’ve been watching it solidly for about three years now. Nothing’s happening right now, but that’s not for want of trying on my part.
“Hopefully something will happen! I’m knocking on doors and I’ve spoken to at least three channels already.
“I would love Michelle to be involved as well, and hopefully with her her doing so well on Celebrity Big Brother, it can’t hurt.”
