Celebrity Big Brother winner Courtney Act in talks for her own chat show on Channel 4

The RuPaul’s Drag Race champion, 36, impressed Channel 4 bosses after appearing on CBB this year – and now they’re keen to invest her talents in a brand new programme.

A TV source said: “Channel 4 spotted Courtney’s talent while she was on Celebrity Big Brother and they love her personality.

“The chat show will be a late night variety programme with a mixture of cabaret, comedy and guest stars.

“At the moment it’s in development but Courtney’s quietly hopeful it will see the light of day.”

Bosses have called the new programme 'Up Late and Courtney Act' – while they continue to iron out the final details before filming.


The reality star won Celebrity Big Brother this year after becoming popular with viewers due to her bromance with Apprentice contestant Andrew Brady.

She also won over fans after locking horns with former Tory MP Ann Widdecombe during her time in the house.

Courtney hit out at Ann, who she beat in the final, saying it would be the “third sign of the Apocalypse” if she won.

Speaking to Attitude magazine she said: "I never thought that I was going to win. Not that I thought I should win, because I thought a woman should win Year of the Woman.

"But given what I think women are about in 2018, I don't reckon Ann represents that.

"Not that I am a woman, but I am a feminist. Brexit happened. Donald Trump is president.

"If Ann Widdecombe won CBB Year of the Woman, it would be the third sign of the Apocalypse.

"We'd be sitting here waiting for the fourth, thinking maybe Ann's God does exist and is coming for the judgement day."
