Pip pip cheerio and HERE WE GO! BBC Three has revealed the official start date of Drag Race UK. DRUM ROLL PLEASE! The highly-anticipated British spin-off will begin airing October 3 at 8pm and will also be available to stream on WOW Presents Plus in the US and BBC iPlayer in the UK & Ireland. If you’re a Canadian Kitty Girl, you’ll be able to watch on Crave and OUTtv! And if perchance you are an Aussie, God love ya mate, and you will be able to watch on WOW Presents Plus AND Stan!

The dates were all announced this morning on Twitter.
The official Twitter page for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK wrote: “We are sick to death of you children asking when the show is coming, quite frankly I came here to have a good time and I’m feeling very attacked right now.”

The UK queens are: Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Cheryl Hole, Crystal, Divina De Campo, Gothy Kendoll, Scaredy Kat, Sum Ting Wong, Vinegar Strokes and The Vivienne.
RuPaul and Michelle Visage will be there, of course, along with UK chat show hosts Alan Carr and Graham Norton acting as the Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley, if you will.
Lorraine Kelly, Stacey Dooley, Cheryl, Maisie Williams, Geri Halliwell, Andrew Garfield, Michaela Coel, Jade Thirwall, Twiggy, MNEK, Curtis Pritchard and AJ Pritchard have all been announced as guest judges for the series.
“Oh my goodness, when they see this show, they are going to flip. And I predict that we will be doing this English edition of Drag Race for many years to come,” RuPaul said of the show’s future.
“I think also, audiences around the world are going to start to require the English version, because it’s different, it’s the same but it’s different. There’s a different tone.”
And below is your first first-look at the UK set, the new set of judges (including a DREAMY Andrew Garfield!), and Mama Ru herself, decked out in a pointy-shouldered neon green number. Everybody say love!
