RuPaul's Drag Race UK

Hannah Conda, Tia Kofi, and Choriza May: meet the 11 Queens competing in RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs The World

Hosting duties moved to Canada for 2022’s series, where the main distinction seemed to be that the winner was crowned “Queen of the Motherpucking World.”

Unlike the regular series of Drag Race, the power to make someone ‘sashay away’ is not in RuPaul’s hands. At the end of each challenge, the top two contestants lip-sync for the chance to not only win the episode, but to choose which of the worst performing queens to expel. In previous series, this has knocked out some top performing fan favourites early in the competition.

Meet the 10 new stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK

10 new queens will enter the Werkroom and go through one of the toughest competitions/ bootcamps of their lives. Alongside singing, dancing and acting, the queens must be able to sew, create veritable works of art on their faces, impersonate a variety of celebrities, insult their fellow queens and lip sync as if their lives depend on it.

Good design wins viewers, says Pascual Diaz

Talking to students at Belfast Metropolitan College, Diaz said: “Because we live in a very visual world, design has a key [role] in delivering our content... [and] attracting the attention of our audience.

We can also communicate our content through social media... in a visual way.”

Diaz, a native of Spain, has worked in the UK for the past decade. Good design, he said, should be “integrated in the content.... If nobody notices the design, it’s a good thing.”

The mission behind the makers of RuPaul's Drag Race UK

Television glitter should lift many spirits brought low by this year’s Christ­mas comedown as RuPaul’s Drag Race UK returns for a second series in January. Good news for fans of the raucous and rude BBC Three show – and for the people that make it.

Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey met at NYU film school in the mid-1980s, performed as a gloriously camp electro-pop duo, The Fabulous Pop Tarts, and went on to found World of Wonder Productions in 1991.

RuPaul and his crew of twelve new British queens will be bringing some sequins and sass to our screens this dreary January.

With Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, Alan Carr and a host of surprise celebrity guest judges offering their critiques of the chosen drag queens, the series will see the queens battle it out through a series of challenges, cat walks and lip-syncs to ultimately be crowned Britain’s next drag superstar.

The eight-part documentary series will give viewers an insight into the hard graft behind the glitz and glamour of the Drag Race UK tour.

The series begins only a few days after The Vivienne won the UK’s first Drag Race and was crowned Drag Race Superstar, with all the queens working together to put on big, showstopping group performances and captivating audiences with their own individual talents, from circus skills, to power ballads.
