Michelle Visage jokes about hoping to get pregnant on Strictly Come Dancing

Michelle Visage has joked about hoping to get pregnant by her dance partner Giovanni Pernice on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Ru Paul’s Drag Race judge says being American makes her an ‘underdog’ in the competition but hopes she will get lots love regardless.

‘A lot of people are like, “Who is that?”, so we’re going to have to make them fall in love with me somehow,’ she told Radio Times.

But gaining a new fan base isn’t all the TV host is hoping for.

‘I’m hoping to get pregnant. Do you think that could happen?’ Michelle said in the interview.

She quickly added that she was ‘Just kidding!’

Either way, Michelle said she is ready to dance her best and to show her ‘daughters that you’re never too old to learn something new’.


Michelle is up against some stiff competition including Comedian Chris Ramsey, ex-footballer David James and EastEnders star Emma Barton, among the 15 strong line-up.

But she isn’t afraid of a challenge: ‘As a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, I know what’s coming. Craig Revel Horwood doesn’t bother me – I’m the female version of him.’

The 50-year-old has been hard at work and was seen training with Pernice for their first dance, which will reportedly be the Cha Cha.

‘I have some girl group dance experience,’ she said. ‘In the 1980s I was in a group called Seduction and we did moves a bit like the Supremes.

‘I’m rhythmic because I’m a singer, and that’s a good place to start – but I have zero dance background.’

Strictly Come Dancing will air on BBC One on Saturday nights.
