The 36-year-old drag queen is keen for the new E! dating show - a 10-part series that follows a group of British singletons who embark on a life of dating and romance in Barcelona - to give bisexual people and the LGBTQ+ community a sense of "visibility" and "representation".

When asked if 'The Bi Life' will "normalise" bisexual dating in a way that society needs, Courtney - whose real name is Shane Jenek - said: "I think so. Bisexual people suffer most from lack of visibility. They're the largest percentage of the LGBTQ+ community and the least visible and least represented.

"In the visibility that 'The Bi Life' is delivering, it might not be the most activist-y or advocate-y but there's a group of people having genuine experiences. That is an interesting and wonderful thing to watch."

Courtney believes bisexuality is "misunderstood" by society and thinks the show will be a successful platform for the LGBT+ community.

She said: "People are obviously obsessed with dating shows - look at the success of 'First Dates' and 'Love Island'.

"The cool thing about 'The Bi Life' is there is something for everyone.

"There is opposite sex people going on dates with same sex people. There's trans experiences and all sorts of different dating experiences. I think in the society that we live in [bisexuality] is misunderstood and a bit taboo and therefore I think people might want to watch."

'The Bi Life' premieres on Thursday October 25th at 9pm on E! UK & Ireland.
