Duncan James has confessed he loves "freaking everybody out" by video calling them when he's made-up in drag

Duncan James enjoys "freaking everybody out" when he's in drag.

The 37-year-old star is set to play drag queen Tick in the UK tour of the play 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert' and he's revealed he loves video-calling his family and friends when he's had his over the top make-up done.

He said: "I've never actually had anybody do that level of drag make-up ... Apart from [former 'Dancing on Ice' judge] Mr. Jason Gardiner did it on me once for a birthday party but we won't talk about that.

"It's so crazy because you don't actually know what you're going to look like until you've got it on so it was very strange and I wanted to just FaceTime my mum and my daughter and everybody and just freak everybody out!"

The Blue singer also confessed he'd be thrilled if his eight-year-old daughter Tianie-Finn decided to follow him into the entertainment industry.

He told ITV's 'Lorraine': "She wants to be on stage and she's an incredible little dancer and performer and so I think, as a parent, it's important to encourage and support, and a lot of people in my industry who've got children, they'll be like, 'I don't want my children going into this'. You've got to care and nurture and support them."
