The 'RuPaul's Drag Race' star - who recently appeared on BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing' - has previously admitted she was in line for a guest appearance as Kat Slater's American cousin, and while she isn't sure what the future holds, she would be delighted to step into Walford.

Speaking to Alex Zane at Samsung KX's 'Thread Talks' on Monday night (02.12.19), she said: "'I'm not your cousin, yes I am!'

"I don't know but I love [actress Jessie Wallace], I love it - it would be amazing and hilarious and I think people would eat that up."

The 51-year-old star recently admitted the cameo was actually close to happening before former showrunner Dominic Treadwell-Collins left the soap.

However, it appears all hope is not lost, and just last month Michelle insisted she was still interested.

She said: "I believe I am Kat [Slater's] American cousin. I'm still vying for that guest role."

And Jessie - who first played Kat back in 2000 - has also backed the idea on social media.

She previously tweeted: "I believe this too! @michellevisage."

Shona McGarty - who plays Whitney Dean - showed her support by tweeting "Omg! Yaaaas," while Kush Kazemi actor Davood Ghadami posted a face with heart eye emojis.

Michelle enjoyed her 'Strictly' stint on the Beeb, even though she was eliminated from the Latin and ballroom show last month after performing a Street Commercial with pro partner Giovanni Pernice to Madonna's 'Vogue' on as a tribute to the New York drag community.
