DRAG queen Cheryl Hole has been announced as the first headliner for Isle of Wight Pride.

The star, known for being one of the first contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race UK, will join the party on the beach on Saturday, July 18, shortly before her appearance at Camp Bestival.

The dancing diva's act is based on former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole.

Isle of Wight Pride is being held on Ryde Esplanade and beach.

Further announcements about other acts are expected.
