Start your engines folks, because RuPauls Drag Race is finally getting its long-awaited UK edition.
The project has long been in the works, with Jonathan Ross saying back in 2014 that he was working on a UK version of the cult reality TV show with legendary drag queen Jodie Harsh. But now, BBC Three has announced that a UK version of Drag Race will be coming to the channel next year.
I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queens queens, RuPaul said.
And before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a Royal-Mother-To-Be runway challenge.
Heres what we know so far…
When will RuPauls Drag Race UK be airing and what channel will it be on?
Theres no transmission date for the series yet but it will air in the UK on BBC Three.
BBC Three controller Damien Kavanagh said: Needless to say, were delighted that BBC Three will be the home of a new UK version of Drag Race.
It is one of the biggest entertainment titles in the world and anticipation levels for a UK version have been at feverish levels.
With heart, humour and the un-imitable RuPaul, Drag Race is going to take BBC Three to a whole new level.
The series will be filmed in London – and although theres no details yet on cast, presenters etc, judge Michelle Visage – known to UK viewers for Celebrity Big Brother – has confirmed she is involved.
