It’s time to start your engines, the cult global phenomenon that is RuPaul's Drag Race is coming to the UK this October.
The series will be available exclusively on BBC Three on 3rd October at 8pm, with episodes available weekly on BBC iPlayer.
Ten unique drag queens will be competing to win the title of the UK’s first Drag Race Superstar, having all been picked by Mama Ru herself.
A sneak peak of the first episode has been released, which includes judges Michelle Visage, Alan Carr and guest judge Andrew Garfield.
The first challenge requires the queens to showcase two royal looks that will rule the runway.
When it came to choosing the queens, RuPaul said: “Each of the UK queens is so unique, so courageous and so special.
“I can't wait for the UK - and the world - to fall in love with them the same way I did.”
Here are the ten competing queens.
The 29-year-old pub queen describes herself as a “tart with a heart” and loves to embody a more cabaret and old school style.
Even if she doesn’t have the best outfit or makeup, she is a live performer and knows how to use comedy and wit to “entertain the absolute shit out of the room.”
The Belfast-based queen is “a child of the Ru generation” and believes her greatest strengths lie in her make-up and ability to think creatively outside the box.
However, she is worried about the comedy challenges...unless it’s a roast, in which case she would “bomb.com”
Divina De Campo
Divina De Campo, a 35-year-old queen from West Yorkshire, believes her ridiculous laugh and varied act makes her unique.
She loves the freedom of drag and she does everything from singing, to dancing, to acting, to comedy.
34-year-old Crystal is originally from Canada but has been living in London for the past ten years.
She is well known for her circus skills and “tearing down gender constructs using creativity, looks, fashion and crazy performances.”
Not afraid to look ugly or scary, Crystal is not competitive with other people but very competitive with herself.
Sum Ting Wong
Sum Ting Wong started doing drag five years ago and doesn’t want the fact that she’s Asian to define her.
She sees herself excelling at the singing challenges but knows dancing is not her strong point.
The whole experience makes her feel like “Willy Wonka with the golden ticket” because she is finally doing something she truly loves.
Cheryl Hole, known for her dance moves and death drops, describes her style as Essex glamour and likes to play up to the Essex Stereotype but loves that drag doesn't force you to fit any kind of mould.
The 25-year-old is confident when it comes to lip syncing, calling herself a “lip sync assassin” and is ready to get competitive if she needs to.
21-year-old Gothy Kendoll from Leicester has a “dark, contemporary, striking” look and finds inspiration everywhere.
Unlike most traditional drag queens, Kendoll likes to DJ and throw parties but doesn’t have much experience with performing.
“London lady” and West End star Vinegar Stokes is a comedy queen, describing herself as “Tina Turner, meets Lizzo, meets Kat Slater."
She acknowledges that you need “balls of steel” to do drag and despite having worked with judge Michelle Visage before, she knows there will be no favouritism.
Pink, cute and feline-esque, Scardey Kat is the youngest ever queen at 20-years-old on Drag Race and has only been doing drag for a year.
At 16, she deleted all her social media accounts because she found them to be too toxic.
Being so young she sees as both a blessing and a curse, with no drag scene in her hometown of Wiltshire she does a lot of her drag alone in her house.
The 27-year-old queen from Liverpool sees comedy as her trump card and especially loves to do vocal impersonations.
Four years ago, The Vivienne was crowned by RuPaul as UK ambassador, but doesn’t think it will give her a head start in the competition, emphasising that she “coming to slay” regardless.
The ten queens have been announced but who will sashay away the competition winner.
RuPaul's Drag Race UK will be available on BBC Three on 3rd October at 8pm.
