Launch date confirmed for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK on STAN
Hey, Australia… RuPaul’s Drag Race UK has finally arrived and will be available to stream same day as the UK from Friday, October 4. Shantay, you stay!
The first UK adaption of the global hit series will showcase the most fabulous drag queens that the UK has to offer. The eight-part series will see 10 fierce British contestants battle it out - and sissy that walk - in order to be crowned the UK’s next drag superstar.
This season, RuPaul, a.k.a the mother of all drag queens, and Michelle Visage will feature as main judges on the show, with Graham Norton and Alan Carr appearing as rotating resident judges. Each week, one of them will join RuPaul, Michelle Visage and a celebrity guest judge - asking one contestant to “sashay away”.
For the grand finale, Graham and Alan will both appear on the judging panel alongside Michelle Visage, where together they will assist host RuPaul in crowning the UK's next drag superstar.
Graham Norton says:
“Becoming part of the drag race family makes me ridiculously happy! I can’t wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better weeeeerk!!!”
Alan Carr says:
“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. I can’t wait to see what the UK Queens have got in store - it’s going to be sickening! *does death drop*”
“I was both shocked and delighted when Graham and Alan told me they’d be wearing tucking panties when sitting at the judges' table. I told them it was not necessary, but they insisted. Now that’s what I call dedication!"
RuPaul’s Drag Race UK premieres 4 October on Stan and streams same day as the UK.
All episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race Seasons 1-11, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars and RuPaul’s Drag Stars Untucked are available to stream now on Stan.
