BBC Three has announced the guest judges taking part in the brand-new series, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Versus the World.
The series will see nine renowned queens from across the world compete in an international Drag Race extravaganza for the ultimate title of becoming a global Drag Race superstar.
The celebrities joining the main judging panel of Michelle Visage, Alan Carr and Graham Norton will be Little Mix’s Jade Thirwall, Spice Girl Melanie C, award-winning actress Michelle Keegan (Our Girl), This Country star and comedian Daisy May Cooper, Bridgerton’s Jonathan Bailey, and BBC Radio 1 and BBC Three presenter Clara Amfo.
After Bimini Bon Boulash’s impersonation of pop culture legend Katie Price left judges in hysterics in Drag Race UK’s second series, the real Katie Price will be joining Michelle Visage to play the Snatch Game. Strictly finalist and professional dancer Johannes Radebe will also be sharing his choreography expertise with the queens for a maxi-challenge.
Clara Amfo said: “I am absolutely DELIGHTED to be a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Versus The World. I have loved Drag Race UK because it is so quintessentially British. From United Kingdolls, Kat Slater intros, iconic fish and chips lewks, Katie Price in Snatch Game. Nowhere else could it be but Drag Race UK. So I can’t wait to see more of these British queens and what the international queens will Ru-veal!”
Katie Price added: “I LOVE Drag Race! The hair, the make-up, the outfits, the characters, the personalities, the glam of it all! I just love it. I’m so excited to be playing the Snatch Game for real this time... Remember, the nipples are the eyes of the face.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Versus The World will air on the launch day of BBC Three on Tuesday 1 February.
