Unlike Drag Race Thailand, the UK spinoff features RuPaul as host and head judge. Michelle Visage is also trekking across the pond to join Mama Ru. However, Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews are not. World of Wonder and BBC announced today who’s taking their places.
British icons Alan Carr and Graham Norton will join Ru and Michelle on the judging panel. Like Kressley and Matthews, the two will alternate every episode.
“Wow! To be sat next to Michelle Visage and Mama Ru as a guest judge on possibly one of my all-time favourite shows EVER is a dream come true,” Carr commented. “I can’t wait to see what the UK Queens have got in store – it’s going to be sickening!”
“Becoming part of the drag race family makes me ridiculously happy!” Graham said in a video. “I can’t wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better weeeeerk!”
