Local Drag Queens to takeover BBC Radio Manchester

Four drag queens are taking over BBC Radio Manchester for one day to celebrate Manchester Pride.

From breakfast through to drive time on Wednesday 21 August, some well know drag stars from Greater Manchester will co-host different shows.

The queen of Canal Street, Belinda Scandal, will be joining Chelsea at breakfast, whilst Divina De Campo, star of BBC talent show All Together Now, joins Mike Sweeney’s mid-morning show.

At lunchtime, Misty Chance pulls up a chair with Becky Want and at drive time, Drag SOS star Donna Trump joins Connor Phillips for the ‘Connor and Donna Show’.

Kate Squire, editor of BBC Radio Manchester, said: “We’re really excited about our Drag Takeover, it’s going to be brilliant fun.

“Drag is a really important part of our culture that we want to celebrate at BBC Radio Manchester in Pride week. No doubt we’ll laugh and we’ll learn at the same time.”
