Details people… details are starting to emerge.
Fan favourite Michelle Visage has been confirmed by the BBC to be a judge on this year’s UK drag race. In December it was confirmed that the juggernaut drag competition was coming to the UK and that BBC 3 is set to be the broadcaster.
Now BBC Three has confirmed that the Visage will be a judge on the show and that RuPaul will be the show’s host.
Speaking about her appointment Michelle said, “We’ve been working tirelessly to bring the magic of RuPaul’s Drag Race to my favourite city in the world: London! I know the UK has a wealth of talent to offer and I’m thrilled beyond belief to see these queens battle it out on the main stage, UK-style! GOD SAVE THE QUEENS!”
Visage has judged eight seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race and four seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars in the US and is an integral part of the show’s continued success. Visage and RuPaul have over 20 years of working history on a variety of projects, from their successful What’s The Tee podcast, to their top-rated morning radio show, to 100+ episodes of their 90s talk show, The RuPaul Show.
