She shot to fame as a contestant on Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and even made the Top 3. I mean, we wouldn’t have figured her as a top, but could Courtney Act be set to finally snatch a crown?
The fishy queen is apparently bookies favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother. Act, who had a minor wardrobe malfunction when entering the house has showed fans a different side to her than they have previously seen.
Most people are familiar with Courtney as her drag alter ego, but with cameras on them 24/7, she has frequently been seen out of drag, as Shane, and not playing a character. She has since been praised for eloquently outlining the sexuality and gender scale.

As well as for standing up against trans housemate Irania (?) or whatever, who apparently has a fear of drag queens; despite having worn a wig and make-up before her transition. (We’re not conflating the two by any means, just struggling to see where exactly the phobia lies).
After India whinged about being part of our (LGBT) community, Courtney put her in place, stating:
“The LGBT community has allowed you to be here to have this voice.
The trans people were such a small part, one to three percent. And by lobbying, essentially, with the L, G and the B, and from 1969 to now, we now have an environment [where you] can be a news reader.”
Viewers have also been loving her flirtatious bond with hunky Andrew Brady. Well, who doesn’t love to see a straight man fall off the heterosexual wagon? *Cackle*
Act has support rallying around her from fellow queens Bianca Del Rio, Adore Delano and of course, the most iconic drag queen of all, Michelle Visage.
And naturally, the guys at C&C Towers are right behind her too! Just how she likes it 😉
