RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is back for series two, and that means more glam, more shade, and more celebrity superfans judging the queens.
Series two of the UK’s Olympics of drag lands on BBC iPlayer tonight, as the new group of queens from all over the UK are introduced.
Series one had plenty of star power on the judging panel, with Geri Horner, Cheryl and Jade Thirlwall among the judges.
And the quality hasn’t dropped, as a host of famous faces from TV, fashion, music and film will be critiquing the looks on the main stage.
Liz Hurley will appear on the first episode alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage, and with her time in the fashion world, we reckon her advice will be taken to heart.
Supermodel Jourdan Dunn will be on hand to tell the queens how best to sissy that walk, while Maya Jama has also been confirmed as a guest judge.
Sheridan Smith and Jessie Ware will be by Ru’s side to give their two cents on the queens’ performance skills, while queen of comedy Dawn French has also been confirmed.
Lorraine Kelly was a guest on Snatch Game in series one, but has now been upgraded to judging on the main stage.
Meanwhile, MNEK, who helped the queens in the girl band challenge last season, will also be critiquing the new batch of queens – let’s hope there’s no bum notes.
While they will not judge on the main stage, a host of special guests have also been confirmed, with Gemma Collins, Natalie Cassidy, Jodie Harsh, Drag Race star Raven and choreographer Jay Revell to appear on the series.
RuPaul will of course be joined by his right hand woman, Michelle Visage, while Graham Norton and Alan Carr will rotate as judges each week alongside the celebrity guest.
However, in the final, it will be just family for the finale, and Ru will have the final say in who is crowned UK’s next drag superstar.
Tayce, Ginny Lemon, Tia Kofi, Ellie Diamond, A’Whora, Asttina Mandella, Bimini Bon Boulash, Joe Black, Cherry Valentine, Lawrence Chaney, Sister Sister and Veronica Green will be competing for the crown.
Episode one of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is available on the BBC iPlayer from 7pm on Thursday, January 14.
