Ever since she rose to fame on the first ever series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK in 2019, Baga Chipz has been EVERYWHERE. Not only has she performed up and down the country and released an album with The Frock Destroyers (her supergroup with Divina De Campo and Blu Hydrangea), the self-proclaimed “most famous woman in Britain” has been a mainstay on our telly boxes.
The Drag Race UK star has long been rumoured to head into the jungle and, with I’m A Celeb expected to return to Australia later this year, it seems she’s more than up for it.
Chatting exclusively to heat, Baga said, “I’m a bit of a lazy cow when it comes to telly. [I’d do] anything where I can sit down, like I’m A Celeb. You can put anything in my gob. I’d get ten stars. I’d eat anything.
“I don’t think they’d be ready for me. You know how you had your Lady C and your Kim Woodburn? I’d be one of them. I’d be the talking point of the show, put that way.”
We don’t doubt that, Baga hun.

2002: Tony Blackburn
Tony Blackburn was the first ever winner of I'm A Celeb back in 2002. He had a dramatic fall from grace in 2016 when he was sacked after 49 years working for the BBC, for failing to co-operate with the Jimmy Savile inquiry. He has since returned to the BBC and also hosts a podcast with Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson called Ricky and Tony's Pop Detectives.
Baga also teased plans for The Frock Destroyers to represent the UK at next year’s Eurovision Song Contest after James Newman scored nil points in Rotterdam last month.
“I watched it and I was like, ‘Fair play, you’ve got a lovely voice, but when it comes to Eurovision, we need fireworks’. I might even get the old Geri Halliwell Union Jack dress, we’ve got to camp it up!
“It’s the Superbowl for gay people, so I’d love to do Eurovision.”

Baga spoke exclusively to heat as she teamed up with Drag Race UK series two’s Ellie Diamond to launch The Hoo Travel Agency, which is introducing a trendy new holiday resort that millennials should be checking into this summer. Move over, Ibiza, we're talking about Great Yarmouth.
Ellie launched the pop-up travel agency yesterday (Tuesday 8 June), while Baga will be heading to the iconic beach town later this week to soak up the sun.
She told us, “I’ve done a few shows in Great Yarmouth and you can’t beat the Great British seaside when the sun’s out. When the sun’s out, I feel like I’m in Faliraki!”
Baga Chipz launched The Hoo Travel Agency in London this week with Drag Race UK finalist Ellie Diamond cutting the ribbon on Tuesday 8 June.
