Derrick Barry has revealed her thoughts about coming back for an All Stars season.

The RuPaul’s Drag Race star recently appeared in the opening episode of season 11 alongside other queens, with many fans thinking it was a sign she could be returning to the show.

Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy ahead of her DragWorld appearance in London, Derrick said: "There was 15 of us that came back so I don't know.

"I was also on Season 10 because Ru invited about 30 of us back and I wasn't on All Stars 4 after that. If it's an invitation, great.

"It's such an honour to be welcomed back and to have RuPaul say 15 of my girls who made an impact to come back. It's incredible to even be part of the franchise.

"I would never turn All Stars down, that's for sure."

Speaking about what she'd bring to the show if she came back, she said: "I think the number one thing I learnt on Drag Race is that confidence is the most important key when we're playing the game.

"I started to lose that as I went on in the competition because I felt like they were asking me to get further and further away from who I am and the drag that I do.

"I learned that in the last three years of travelling, I have not booked one show where I have been asked to come and do drag, they want me to come and impersonate Britney.

"It shows that although I went in with the aspirations of doing more than that, that's not what people want. I think I need to give the audience what I do best, and that is Britney.

"It doesn’t have to be a Britney replica each time but they want to see me as confident and sexy as I can possibly be, and that's my element. It's a drag pop star."

DragWorld takes place the Olympia in London on August 17 and 18. Tickets can be purchased here.
