Viewers will see Michelle's lusty Mary follow the slurred instructions of Jessica Knappett (Drifters) and Lydia Rose Bewley as they attempt to retell the history of royal rivalry after downing a few too many drinks.

Queen Katy and Queen Michelle.

Pictures released ahead of the episode show Michelle  in traditional garb as she hides a cheeky smirk from the red-haired queen and another sees her slumped on a sumptuous purple velvet following a passionate romp as two men argue behind her.
