RuPaul's Drag Race queen Courtney Act made quite the entrance on Celebrity Big Brother this weekend. 

The drag queen legend was rumoured to join the cast of this year's reality television series and entered the house on Friday night (January 5). 

However as she walked towards the house she tripped over the hem of her long skirt and it dropped off, flashing the audience.

Act, real name Shane Jenek, then tried wrapping the skirt around her body as she made her way into the house, but the accident had already been caught on camera. 

 

It didn't end there, however, as her skirt fell off again when she entered the house to meet her fellow contestants.

Many viewers claimed Act's wardrobe malfunction was planned while others think it was simply an unfortunate accident. 

Act has become the first Drag Race queen to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house following from Drag Race judge Michelle Visage who appeared on the show's 2015 series and came fifth in the competition. 

Meanwhile, Celebrity Big Brother bosses 'fear backlash' with Act, who is expected to clash with fellow contestant India Wiloughby who claimed drag queens like RuPaul "cheapen" the transgender cause

The show was already hit with controversy this week when former Daily Mail columnist Katie Hopkins made a series of anti-trans remarks directed at Willoughby during the show's launch on Tuesday (January 2).

Celebrity Big Brother continues on Channel 5.
