RuPaul's Drag Race UK
1 2 3

RuPaul's Drag Race UK (or simply Drag Race UK) is a sister series to RuPaul's Drag Race with host RuPaul and main judge Michelle Visage traveling across the pond to contribute to the series.

RuPaul's Drag Race UK airs on the BBC which is a public broadcasting company funded by taxes. Because of this, competitive television shows which air on the BBC may not use commercial sponsorships (like challenge prizes), nor are they allowed to give cash prizes. According to the "Framework for Funding Prizes and Awards" of the BBC, prizes should be original and something money cannot buy, hence the Ru Peter Badge that contestants earn when they win a challenge.[1]

Michelle Visage accidentally leaked 6 queens of Season 2 during a IG live on March 19, 2020 during the filming time.[2]

On November 2nd 2020, it was announced that the show had been renewed for Season 3 with the deadline to register being November 14th 2020 with the season speculated to air in 2021 also. [1]

On December 15th 2020, BBC announced that Season 2 would air in January 14th 2021 with the Promo and Meet the Queens being revealed the following day.
