BBC Three has announced that Graham Norton and Alan Carr are joining the judging panel for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
Each week the glamorous pair will be joined by a celebrity guest judge with Graham Norton and Alan Carr rotating as resident judges on the panel.
Norton was previously a guest judge on the US version of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars season and RuPaul previously appeared on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man.
Norton and Carr will also return for the grand finale of the series, where with the rest of the panel they will crown the UK’s Next Drag Superstar.
“Becoming part of the drag race family makes me ridiculously happy!" said Norton. "I can’t wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better weeeeerk!!!”
“Wow! 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,” added Carr.
“I can’t wait to see what the UK Queens have got in store - it’s going to be sickening! *does death drop*”
RuPaul said he was "both shocked and delighted when Graham and Alan told me they’d be wearing tucking panties when sitting at the judges' table. I told them it was not necessary, but they insisted. Now that’s what I call dedication!"
