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]
