The 'EastEnders' actress is among the stars taking part in the second season of the BBC Three show and she will give the contestants an "acting masterclass".

Natalie said: "I love the show. I love its boldness, its brassiness, and its sassiness. I was really thrilled to be part of it… it's good fun and it's just what we need right now.

"As ever the talent is amazing and fabulous. There is so much creativity and humour and good fun from what I've seen. Exactly the sort of thing we need to cheer us all up - long live 'Drag Race'."

Choreographer Jay Revell – who has worked with Little Mix, Liam Payne and Kesha – will also appear on the show, alongside UK drag star Jodie Harsh.

And 'Drag Race All Star' Raven, is set to share beauty tips with the new batch of contestants.

Raven said: "These queens are coming for royal blood! Every year the calibre of talent surpasses the previous year. These queens came to win. Win big and prove they are the beat of the best. A lot of heart and soul and a lot of laughs."

It was previously announced that Dawn French, Maya Jama and Jessie Ware have joined 'RuPaul's Drag Race UK' as guest judges, alongside Elizabeth Hurley, Lorraine Kelly, Sheridan Smith, MNEK and Jourdan Dunn.
