The fabulous Kevin Cruise is never a drag.
But the Britain's Got Talent veteran did his best to encourage others to 'drag up' when he popped into Windsor's Theatre Royal this week.
Kevin, who will be starring again in this year’s pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk at the theatre, was promoting a drag race in aid of Windsor's hospice.
Michelle Bowdidge, senior events fundraiser for Thames Hospicecare, which runs the hospice in Hatch Lane, said: "It is great for Kevin to take time out of his busy schedule to help with our new event. The route will be taking in the sites of Windsor Town Centre."
Thames Hospicecare’s maintenance officer, Jason Lloyd, will be wearing a wedding dress with his friend as bridesmaid. There will be a prize for the best dressed participant.
The drag race takes place on Saturday, October 13, at 9am, with a 5km route starting and finishing from Bachelors Acre in Windsor. Registration is £10 but entrants are urged to raise as much as they can in sponsorship.

More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
