RuPaul’s Drag Race star Willam has landed her own TV series.

According to Out Magazine, Willam will host the new Quibi series, Fashion’s a Drag, where she and a other fan favourite drag queens and experts from Elle will rundown fashion trends and news.

In her statement, Willam said: “People have looked up to drag queens for style cues for years and that’s not just a joke about men being taller in her heels and wigs.

“And since red carpets need a recapping, Quibi decided to give me show which will utilise the two things I’m known for – my style and my mouth.

“Get ready to salute and disput each week with me and my fabulous friends.”

Quibi is a new mobile streaming service and has already announced projects with the likes of Lena Waithe and Sasha Velour.

Willam came to prominence when he competed on the fourth season of RuPaul's Drag Race in 2012, during which he became the only contestant to ever be disqualified from the series.
