RuPaul's Drag Race UK season one winner and RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 7 star The Vivienne is coming back to TV for another reality competition series.
On Friday, October 7, the OG winner of Drag Race UK announced that she'll compete on season 15 of Dancing on Ice on ITV. She wrote in a tweet:
"Excited to announce that I will be competing in Dancing on Ice in 2023! A dream come true. To be the first drag artist to take part in one of the big UK reality competition shows is truly an honor. I think it's a big step forward for queer representation on TV."

Now, fans only have to wait and see to find out who will be Viv's professional partner on Dancing on Ice. That announcement is typically only made closer to the season premiere date.
Since winning Drag Race UK and appearing on All Stars 7, The Vivienne has remained one of the most booked and busy queens within the entire franchise. On TV, she's appeared on shows such as Celebrity Juice, The Great British Sewing Bee, The Weakest Link, Celebrity Hunted, and Celebrity Mastermind.
Viv also starred in the WOW Presents Plus original series Morning T&T, The Vivienne Takes on Hollywood, and God Shave the Queens. Last but certainly not least, she has an incredibly successful web series with Netflix UK alongside Monet X Change.
Drag Race fans already know who they will be rooting for on the next season of Dancing on Ice!
Dancing on Ice season 15 premieres January 2023 on ITV.
