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.

The eight-part series will search the UK for the brightest and best drag queens to discover the UK's next drag superstar.

To get the crown, the queens must first be put through an array of challenges, testing the contestants’ acting, modelling and comedy skills.

A series regular in the US version, Michelle Visage has judged eight series of RuPaul’s Drag Race in the US and has collaborated with RuPaul for over two decades.

“We've been working tirelessly to bring the magic of RuPaul's Drag Race to my favourite city in the world: London!” Said Visage.
