The 51-year-old Ru Paul's Drag Race judge, who is partnered with Giovanni Pernice on the show, told the Daily Mail: "I mean, I feel like it's time, you know, it’s definitely been time for that to happen. So I think if anyone's going to do it, Strictly will do it and they will do it right.

"I don’t think gender really has a place in there anymore, I think if it looks good, it looks good, if it doesn’t, then you just deal with it."

She also spoke about her love of the show, saying: "I love this country so much, I feel like Strictly holds more of the traditionalism that the dances are. I don't want to go crazy and do wacky stuff. 

"I like the idea of if you give me a waltz, I'm going to do a waltz... I don't have to break into the running man to make it interesting, I want to do a beautiful waltz."

Strictly Come Dancing continues this Saturday on BBC One.
