Michelle Visage will be a judge on the UK series of RuPaul’s Drag Race, it has been confirmed.
She has judged eight series of the US version of the show and four series of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, and will join previously announced host RuPaul for the UK edition, BBC Three has said.
Visage 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!”
RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will see the judging panel search for the best drag queens in the UK as a series of challenges test their comedy, modelling, and acting skills before RuPaul crowns the UK’s Next Drag Superstar.
Executive producers Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey said: “Michelle has worked tirelessly to help bring Drag Race to the UK, we are grateful she is part of our family.
“She is a quadruple threat – she sings, she dances, she acts, and boy, can she judge! Queens beware!”
