The highly anticipated, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is returning to BBC iPlayer this September, and RuPaul and BBC Three have Ru-vealed the next set of fabulous drag queens about to make their Werk Room debut.
Global drag icon, and judge supremo, RuPaul presides as twelve of the nation’s most fabulous queens compete over ten weeks to be crowned the UK’s Next Drag Race Superstar.
Series one, two and three of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK have been streamed over 51 million times on BBC iPlayer, firmly establishing the title as a much loved, highly lauded, competitive reality smash hit for BBC Three, making it one of the BBC’s top activating titles on iPlayer for young audiences.
Each week, the queens face challenges that test their drag race prowess to the max in the hope that they have impressed Ru enough to avoid being one of the bottom two queens facing a lip sync for their life and elimination from the competition.
Queen of queens, Mama Ru has the ultimate say on who shantays or sashays away, and each week, Ru is joined on the judging panel by Michelle Visage, an extra special celebrity guest judge and, on a rotational basis, Graham Norton and Alan Carr.
