Visage will spill the beans on her time on Strictly Come Dancing and how she’s feeling after her recent elimination. She’ll also chat to Ray about the global phenomenon that is Drag Race and how Ireland holds a special place in her heart.

Kildare man Dowling, who won Big Brother in 2001, and his husband Arthur Gourounlian will be on the couch to talk to Ray about their life in Los Angeles and their hopes of starting a family.
