The Vivienne as Donald Trump and Baga Chipz as Margaret Thatcher. (Wow)

Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne and second runner-up Baga Chipz will return to screens in the very, very near future with Morning T&T.

The Vivienne and Baga Chipz are revisiting their Snatch Game characters, Donald Trump and Margaret Thatcher, for the new digital series.

“It’s like a spoof of Good Morning Britain and Good Morning America,” The Vivienne told Gay Times.

“It’s Donald Trump and Maggie Thatcher having this weird on-screen romance, reading ridiculous news stories, some true and some false.”

The spin-off was announced immediately after the Scouse queen became Britain’s first Drag Race superstar, and it has now been revealed that the first episode will arrive on WOW Presents Plus on Thursday, December 12.

A trailer for the series promises a typically understated, demure showing for the two queens.

It shows Thatcher swigging from a Union Jack hip flask and telling Trump: “You’re turning me on, Donald. You may have little hands but you have a massive…”

“You’re the Iron Lady, I’d like to be your Iron Fella,” Trump replies. “I’ll do you up against that wall.”

The special relationship is well and truly alive, so it seems.

Trump and Thatcher were the stand-outs of Drag Race UK‘s Snatch Game, with judge Michelle Visage calling The Vivienne’s performance one of the best in the game show’s history.

Speaking to PinkNews, The Vivienne revealed that she chose Trump over her other option – Kim Woodburn – because she “knew it would probably get more press in America”.

She also wanted “to make a bloody idiot of him”.

Since the Drag Race UK final aired last month, Baga and The Vivienne have been on tour with the rest of the season one cast.

Baga was also spotted by fans on The X Factor:Celebrity final.

The Vivienne alleged that she’d also been asked to perform, but declined because the queens had been asked to appear for free while other performers were being paid.
