Here’s the first pic of Sydney drag sensation and all-round entertainer Trevor Ashley as Hairspray mum Edna Turnblad.

Fresh from his string of sell-out I’m Every Woman shows at the Sydney Opera House, Ashely is in rehearsals for the Melbourne opening night of the stage production.

He’s got big frocks to fill given movie greats Divine and John Travolta played the role in the two silver screen versions of the show.

But we reckon the DIVA performer of the year will be perfect in the role and look forward to opening night.
