The most fabulous show on telly is in full swing, and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK has really hit the ground running in 2021.
We’ve had history makers, new national heroes and even shocking injuries so far, and things are only just getting started.
With new episodes arriving every Thursday, fans have been glued to the action for the first few weeks and they’re already rooting for their favourites.
The 12 queens who began the series have been whittled down already, with RuPaul on the hunt for the next big thing in drag.
But who are the judges appraising the queens this year? Here’s everything you need to know.
Who are the judges this season?
It wouldn’t be Drag Race without Ru, and as ever Mama Ru is joined by Michelle Visage on the judging panel.
This year, Graham Norton and Alan Carr will alternate on the panel and join the pair on separate weeks.
They aren’t the only ones imparting judgement this year, though. The regulars will be joined by a host of guest stars, with a different one taking part every week.
So far, Matt Lucas and Nicola Coughlan have graces our screens. Oti Mabuse also took part in last week’s show, acting as a mentor during a dancing challenge – as well as a appearing on the panel later in the episode.
In the coming weeks, fans can expect to see Emma Bunton, Alesha Dixon, Kathy Burke, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Lulu and Russel Tovey all joining Ru on the panel.
It comes after Veronica Green thanked Nicola Coughlan for a ‘heartfelt letter’ the guest judge left her after she was eliminated from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK last week.
The queen was eliminated in episode three of the third season of Drag Race UK, after first being unable to continue competing in season two due to testing positive for Covid-19.
RuPaul’s Drag Race UK episodes drop every Thursday at 7pm on BBC iPlayer.
