Leigh-Anne Pinnock is reportedly set to become a guest judge on the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.

The Little Mix singer, 29, who recently revealed she’s pregnant with her first child, is thought to have filmed her stint on the panel in Manchester earlier this year.

An insider told The Daily Star: ‘Producers have wanted Leigh-Anne to be a guest judge for a long time, so they were thrilled she was finally able to do it.

‘Everything was very hush-hush and she wasn’t able to tell many people she was doing it.

‘Leigh-Anne is a massive fan of the show, so she was the perfect guest judge. She was in her element.’  

They added that Leigh-Anne joined show boss RuPaul and judging regular Michelle Visage on the panel for her appearance.

MailOnline has contacted Leigh-Anne’s representatives for further comment. 

Jade, who has often spoken about her love for the show, appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK in 2019.

During her memorable appearance she threw shade at Simon Cowell as she joked that he ‘has much bigger t**ts’ when asked to compare their judging styles.

The singer looked sensational in a shiny baby blue mini dress and a white feather boa as she joined the show’s judging panel as a special guest.

Jade has also previously said that her boyfriend Jordan Stephen’s love of drag was one of the things that helped seal their relationship.

Speaking to RuPaul for Cosmopolitan Magazine last year, Jade said: ‘It’s really important for me that whoever I find relationship-wise loves drag culture.

‘When I first started talking to my boyfriend, I discovered he did a movie [2018 film Tucked] where he played a drag queen and I was like… He’s perfect. Sign me up!’ 

Leigh-Anne’s own reported involvement in the show comes after she announced her pregnancy on Tuesday.
