The appearance will come as fundraising continues for the annual Portsmouth Pride events, which draw crowds of thousands in the summer.

Drag queen Sum Ting Wong placed seventh in the show, which BBC Three has confirmed will return for a second series after ratings success.

Figures showed the reality contest had already scooped more than 6.5m hits on BBC iPlayer with more than half its debut series still to be aired.
