The cast for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK series 3 has been revealed, with the new line-up of queens teasing glamour, comedy and a whole lot of entertainment on BBC Three.
It’s only been a few months since Lawrence Chaney was crowned the winner of Drag Race series 2, beating Bimini Bon-Boulash and Tayce in the final round of the competition.
Nonetheless, fans already can’t wait for the show to return – spotting a familiar face in the line-up.
During the previous series, Veronica Green was forced to withdraw after the break between filming after contracting Covid-19.
Nonetheless, she’s back to compete another day, joining Drag Race’s first ever cis-female queen in the competition.
So without further ado, meet your Drag Race UK series three queens!

Charity Kase, 24, is from Lancashire and explains that she has ‘a reputation for really outlandish crazy looks’.
‘I like to play on the darkness in beauty, break beauty stereotypes and create a fantasy from another dimension,’ she said. ‘My name comes from my ability to craft stuff on a very low budget and transform the grotesque to glamorous and maybe be both at the same time!’
