Let’s see, let’s see… what do we got here? There’s some pointy shoulders, long legs, and a bumped-up wig (I’m guess…. blonde?) – in silhouette on the set of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK (below).
“I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens,” Ru said in a statement about the new international version. “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.”
“Needless to say, we’re delighted that BBC Three will be the home of a new U.K. version of Drag Race,” Damian Kavanagh, controller for BBC Three, told BBC News.
“It is one of the biggest entertainment titles in the world and anticipation levels for a U.K. version have been at feverish levels,” he added. “With heart, humour and the un-imitable RuPaul, Drag Race is going to take BBC Three to a whole new level.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. will premiere in October on BBC Three.
