RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will premiere in early October, streaming on Stan the same say as the show is made available elsewhere around the world.
Fans can look forward to the new reality show from 4 October. The eight-part series will feature 10 fierce British drag queens, with RuPaul and Michelle Visage chairing the judge’s table. The duo will be joined by rotating guest judges Graham Norton and Alan Carr.
“Becoming part of the drag race family makes me ridiculously happy,” Graham Norton said of his appointment. “I can’t wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better weeeeerk!!!”
“To be sat next to Michelle Visage and Mama Ru as a guest judge on possibly one of my all-time favourite shows EVER is a dream come true. I can’t wait to see what the UK Queens have got in store – it’s going to be sickening,” Alan Carr added.
“I was both shocked and delighted when Graham and Alan told me they’d be wearing tucking panties when sitting at the judges’ table,” said mother herself, RuPaul Charles. “I told them it was not necessary, but they insisted. Now that’s what I call dedication!”
