Shantay, you stay and find out where to watch ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’
Gurl, we’re here to spill the tea on how you can watch a whole new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. This already messy year needs a bit of glam & glitter thrown into the mix. Alongside a panel of judges, RuPaul must find the UK’s next drag superstar!
Drag queens provide the perfect remedy to cure those quarantine blues. Here’s how you can enjoy the latest Drag Race season before its release and any details you may have missed.
Season 2 of Drag Race UK has been confirmed and we’re already excited for its release. The global franchise has since expanded to Canada, Holland, and Spain, with pre-existing offshoots in South America and Thailand. Due to COVID-19 slowing down most of this year’s productions, we’ve had to wait slightly longer for this second season. Each season also brings a variety of judges to the panel and this season is no different.
Actress Elizabeth Hurley, supermodel Jourdan Dunn, actress Sheridan Smith, singer MNEK, TV presenter Lorraine Kelly, actress Dawn French, TV presenter Maya Jama and singer Jessie Ware will act as guest judges. Of course, the main judges – RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, and Alan Carr – are all returning for season 2.
Twelve drag queens will be strutting their stuff and taking part in a variety of challenges set by the drag icon RuPaul. Queens will be eliminated until a winner is announced and becomes a part of Drag Race herstory.
