RuPaul has teased a potential collaboration with Little Mix - just says after her return to the world of music with a new EP.

The subject of a LM collab came up while Ru was being interviewed by Little Mixer Jade Thirlwall for the new issue of Cosmopolitan UK.

The ensuing conversation sounds very promising indeed.

"When will you be featuring on the Little Mix album?”

"I loved your collaboration with Miley Cyrus [Cattitude, from her 2019 EP She Is Coming]," Jade tells Ru during the chat. "When will you be featuring on the Little Mix album?”

To this, the drag superstar replied: "As soon as possible. I’d love that. I’m yet to meet the other girls so I’m very excited."

Elsewhere in the interview, Ru tells Jade [pictured below]: "Ever since The Supremes, I’ve always loved a girl band.

"There’s something in our collective DNA that when we see a group of women together, [we think] there’s something important happening. We respond."

The star dropped her Hey Sis, It's Christmas! EP on Sunday.

She also told Jade - who's just released amazing new single Sweet Melody alongside bandmates Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock - about the birth of RuPaul, saying: "As a kid, I knew I would be famous. Cher, David Bowie, Diana Ross, Dolly Parton – I mixed all of those together and came up with who I would be."

Makes perfect sense when you think about it!
