Yes, kids, you heard it here second! The Sun is reporting that RuPaul’s Drag Race is coming to the UK for the show’s first ever British version next year.
“I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens. And before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a ‘Royal-Mother-To-Be’ runway challenge.”
(Please read the above in your best faux Brit accent…)
The British version will be eight episodes and no other info divulged yet so far but a “TV source” said,
“This is a massive coup for the Beeb as lots of other UK channels wanted this show. It will follow the exact same format as the American version with British twists and some famous guests.
It will be filmed in London and casting directors will be searching for the best drag artists Britain has to offer – there’ll be a huge budget for costumes and production and bosses are hoping that a star is born. It’s really exciting for everyone involved and is expected to draw a lot of new fans to the franchise.
RuPaul has a cult following so it’s massive news.”
