BBC Three has ordered a new show fronted by Drag Race’s Michelle Visage produced by World of Wonder.
Each episode, Michelle will invite BBC Three viewers to join her at Club Visage where she will share her wisdom and dish out her unique brand of advice.
She will also be joined by a celebrity guest for a spot of real talk and, drawing on their own experiences, together they will workshop the audience’s dilemmas and problems.
Michelle Visage says: “I am THRILLED to be bringing my kind of chat to a show on the amazing BBC Three in the country that literally owns my own heart! It’s 2020 and we can no longer sit back and complain, it’s time to stand up and GET OFF YOUR ASS with Michelle Visage! See you soon on the iPlayer nearest you *wink*”
Fenton Bailey, co-founder of World of Wonder, says: “World of Wonder is excited to be expanding its UK operations for GET OFF YOUR ASS with Michelle Visage! We’ve worked with Michelle for many years and she is the living breathing embodiment of getting Off Your Arse. We are so thrilled to work with her on her own talk show, showcasing her unique ability to relate to young people and helping them with issues they face in today’s world.”
Fiona Campbell, Controller BBC Three, says: “We’re over the moon to be working with World of Wonder again for Michelle’s very first chat show. She is a huge talent, loved by the BBC Three audience, and this series will bring a brand new flavour to the existing mix of programmes available on BBC iPlayer.”
