She slayed RuPaul’s Drag Race and won Celebrity Big Brother.
And now Australia Decides hopeful Courtney Act has another reality TV competition in her sights: Dancing With The Stars.
The “Fight For Love” hitmaker is one of eleven celebrities competing in the revived series on Australian network Ten.
Dancing With The Stars begins on February 18 and the Sydney Morning Herald suggests the show may run for as long as eleven weeks.
Will there be a conflict with Eurovision?
In short, no.
The last season of Dancing With The Stars ran for eight weeks and the final featured four competitors.
Even if the show runs for eleven weeks, that still leaves Courtney Act five days until rehearsals are likely to begin on Sunday May 4.
The casting is historic, as it makes Courtney the first drag act to compete in the series.
Courtney Act on Dancing With The Stars
The star has previously expressed an interest in competing in Strictly Come Dancing.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Courtney said:
“I would want to be Courtney and dance with a male partner. And then halfway through the series I’d come out as Shane and there would finally be same-sex dancing on the show.
“I’ve seen same-sex ballroom dancing and it’s just as fabulous.”
Whether she’ll realise that dream and compete as Shane at some point in the series remains to be seen.
Announcing the news on Twitter, Act said:
Imma be twinkling round the floor on Dancing With The Stars!!! Can't wait to do all the sexy dances and wear all the pretty dresses (hopefully no wardrobe malfunctions this time) #DWTSau @DancingOn10 pic.twitter.com/f7dtvrTuei

Her reference to a wardrobe malfunction alludes to her entry to the Big Brother House in 2018. On final approach the star suffered the ultimate malfunction as her skirt fell off.
Ever the professional Act recovered and showed aspiring drag queens everywhere how tucks should be done.
But before she hits the dancefloor, Courtney will compete in Australia Decides on February 9, alongside nine other acts.
