BBC Three signs Drag Race UK and Strictly star Michelle Visage for a brand new series Michelle Visage: Get Off Your Ass
BBC Three has given Michelle Visage her own show, produced by the award-winning World of Wonder and centred around her personal mantra of ‘Get Off Your Ass’.
Michelle Visage is a woman of many talents. Aside from vogueing on Strictly and being RuPaul’s trusted sidekick of many years, she is a former doyenne of the New York Ballroom scene, a former girl band member, an experienced radio DJ and chat show host, a bio-queen and LGBTQ+ champion, a long standing Drag Race judge, and most importantly, a wife and a mother.
In short, Michelle Visage has a lot of life experience. Combine that with her New Jersey sass, warmth, wit, wisdom and candour about her own personal struggles, it becomes clear that Michelle Visage is the perfect host with her own super power: she gives great counsel.
Each episode, Michelle will invite BBC Three viewers to join her at Club Visage where she will share her wisdom and dish out her unique brand of advice.
She will also be joined by a celebrity guest for a spot of real talk and, drawing on their own experiences, together they will workshop the audience’s dilemmas and problems.
In addition, one extra special viewer in need of a little extra boost will receive a bit of M.V.T - that’s Michelle Visage Treatment. She will listen and do her best to advise, and as a little extra perk she will throw in a fun 'immersive' challenge to help get her subject back on track.
To do this she will enlist the help of the UK’s First Drag Race Superstar, The Vivienne. Together they will get their subject off of their ass, and at the very least give them a night to remember...
Michelle Visage says: “I am THRILLED to be bringing my kind of chat to a show on the amazing BBC Three in the country that literally owns my own heart! It’s 2020 and we can no longer sit back and complain, it’s time to stand up and GET OFF YOUR ASS with Michelle Visage! See you soon on the iPlayer nearest you *wink*”
