Katie Price may be a glamour model, mum-of-five, savvy businesswoman and a Celebrity Big Brother winner, but now she can add the role of celebrity judge to her résumé.

RuPaul's Drag Race is on the lookout for a UK Ambassador and to aid the search, RuPaul has enlisted the help of Katie who will be joining the judging panel as the first celebrity judge.

RuPaul's Drag Race is a hit American reality series that follows RuPaul and a host of drag queen contestants as they search for the next drag superstar.

For the first time ever RuPaul is coming to the UK and not only will RuPaul be turning to Katie to help find the perfect ambassador, a second celebrity judge will also be recruited who is yet to be announced.

The panel will come together for a star-studded live final in London on 28 May, after a month long competition that has seen drag queens from all across the UK exhibiting their best lip-syncing skills and all round fabulousness.

Luckily for Katie, she has a secret weapon up her sleeve to get her prepared for her time in the judging hotseat... Michelle Visage.

During her time in the CBB house, Katie formed a firm friendship with Michelle and the girls have kept in touch since the show came to an end earlier this year.

With Michelle being a regular judge on the US version of RuPaul's Drag Race, we've no doubt Katie will be on the phone to pick up a few tips. Or maybe she'll get more than she bargained for and Michelle will join her on the panel?

Michelle, Katie and RuPaul?! That we would love to see!

Katie and Michelle became besties while staying in the CBB house together.

Katie's latest project comes after she has been busying herself with work commitments.

Yesterday, the 36-year-old cut a glamorous figure as she teamed up with Pringles to smash piñatas and break a world record. Yes, really!

She has also been gearing up for the release of her next autobiography, teasing fans that she will reveal all on a 'household name' that has upset her.

"There are a couple of guys in there who have upset me so I think it's about time I tell the truth about them," she said. "They are a household name. I'll be disappearing somewhere in the Maldives or somewhere where no one can see me when that book is out."

Not only that, but Katie has confirmed she is filming a brand new reality show with husband Kieran Hayler too.

Is there anything the Pricey cannot do?!

RuPaul's Drag Race will air every Monday and Tuesday at 10pm from 1st June on truTV, Freeview channel 68, Sky channel 198 and FreeSat channel 154. It's followed by RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked, that contains never-seen-before behind the scenes content.
