Charlie, who appeared on the 9th season of the show, will be at the venue in Canal Road on Wednesday, October 2.

The event coincides with the release of RuPaul's Drag Race UK which premieres the following day on BBC iPlayer.

Luke Gallacher, who has run the pub for nearly 10 years, said: "I'm looking forward to that because a couple of people who are on the UK one have performed here, so the timing is really good."

Drag bingo will include comedy, songs and prizes.

Charlie Hides is known for his YouTube channel where he impersonates the likes of Joan Rivers, Madonna and Lady Gaga.

Before appearing on the US version of RuPaul's Drag Race, he featured on Big Brother's Bit on the Side.

The US-born queen was both the oldest-ever contestant on the show, at 52, and the show's first British resident to compete, finishing in 12th place.
