It’s official, following the expansion of the RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise to Thailand, the next country to step onto the runway is the UK.
The BBC have confirmed that they will be producing an eight-episode series in London in 2019, featuring home-grown talent from the UK.
RuPaul’s Drag Race has become a cultural phenomenon, elevating its cast members to global superstar status, so the competition will be fierce to land one of the coveted places on the UK cast.
Here’s eight queens that we’d like to see thrust onto the world stage. Who’s on your wish-list?
Probably best-known for her killer impressions of Theresa May, Fagulous is a clever queen who knows how to put on a show.
Always beautiful, HERR brings a kooky and quirky aesthetic to her killer lip-sync mash-ups.
If you’re looking for some hair-ography and some power dance moves, Freida Slaves is exactly who you’re looking for.

Just as in real life, you’re never really sure where The Night Bus is going to take you, but it’s always worth the trip.
The beauty with the beard is always attention-grabbing.
A fishy queen with a dark side.
Shantay you stay or ShayShay away. Eclectic East London cabaret art at its best.
A high energy entertainer that can always be relied on to bring the drama.
