Alan Carr And Graham Norton Confirmed To Be Regular Judges on Drag Race UK
“It’s gonna be sickening”
In case you have been living under a rock, RuPaul’s Drag Race is an American TV competition series that sees Drag Queens from around the world compete against each other to see who will be “America’s next drag superstar”.
So far the show has produced a number of drag superstars such as local favourite Courtney Act, Bianca Del Rio and Raja.
The show has become a cult favourite over the years which is why we were so excited to hear the show was coming to the UK for the first time ever.
RuPaul will be back to host alongside longtime US judge Michelle Visage. It was yet to be announced which home-grown talent would be judging alongside these two - that is until now.
Yesterday, it was revealed that TWO iconic British comedians Alan Carr and Graham Norton will be joining the duo as regular judges throughout the season.
Alan announced the news in the most Alan way possible - with the best death drop you will ever see.
The pair were both front runners for the coveted judging spot before they were officially announced, but that hasn’t stopped them from being incredibly excited at the news. Graham Norton posted a video sharing his happiness saying “"I can't wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better weeeeerk!"
Fans of Drag Race are already losing their minds on Twitter, sharing their excitement for the upcoming series.
GRAHAM NORTON AND ALAN CARR ON UK DRAG RACE? I CAN'T WAIT— Caitlin (@BrewTeaFulCait) February 14, 2019
Each week Ru, Visage and either Carr or Norton will be on the judging panel alongside a celebrity guest judge. There is not much hints as to who these judges could be but Visage told Gay Times last year that her dream celeb appearances would be the Abs Fab duo Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley - and wow that would be amazing!
Drag Race UK is set to air eight 60 minute long episodes on BBC Three later this year.
