After 11 series of the popular US drag competition, diehard fans rejoiced when it was announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race would be heading to BBC Three for the first UK series.

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.
