Lawrence Chaney to appear on Celebrity Bridge of Lies alongside other RuPauls Drag Race UK stars

A Scottish drag icon is set to appear on the next series of Ross Kemp's Celebrity Bridge of Lies alongside their fellow RuPauls Drag Race UK stars.

The third episode of the show, which returns on January 14, will see four Drag Race UK stars take on the popular BBC gameshow.

Glasgow's Lawrence Chaney, who was Scotland's only ever winner of the reality show, will be joined by Tia Kofi, Kitty Scott-Claus and fellow winner The Vivienne to take on the Bridge of Lies.

Former actor and host Ross Kemp will preside over the celebrities as they try to win money for charity by crossing the bridge, careful to step on the truths and avoid the lies, or risk falling off and out of the game.

Along with eight episodes of Celebrity Bridge of Lies, series two of Bridge of Lies will return to BBC One Daytime on Monday, January 23, with members of the public once again taking on the bridge in the hope of bringing home some cash.

When asked if he would consider taking on RuPauls Drag Race, Ross said: "Believe it or not, I have already had a drag makeover for TV before! I played a drag queen in a cop show called City Central in 1998 and trust me, it’s harder than it looks!

"It took forever to get into that costume. I got into 16th century armour quicker than I got into that dress and wig.

"I have so much respect for the queens, and I think it’s the drag names that are particularly clever. Kitty Scott-Claus, Tia Kofi… they’re all brilliant."

Ross was also asked what his drag race name would be, to which he replied: "Brit Jordan! It has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?"

Ross Kemp's Bridge of Lies will return Celebrity style to BBC One on Saturday, January 14 at 6:05pm.
