Episode 1: "The Queens' Variety Show"[]

Airdate: February 9, 2024 Synopsis:

TBA.

It’s back and fiercer than ever! The hugely successful Drag Race UK spin-off returns, and the famed competition is elevated to the next level as RuPaul invites Drag Race glamazons from around the world to the UK arena to compete alongside fan favourites from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. The elite players may come from different cultures and drag scenes, but they have one thing in common: they all want to do their countries proud by taking home the crown and the coveted title of Queen of the Mothertucking World - and, for the first time in Drag Race UK herstory, a cash prize. The queens enter the UK arena and meet their fellow competitors for the first time. They also meet judge supremo, Mama Ru, who is keen to get to know them a little more before setting them their first challenge. They are to showcase their very best talents in a variety show fit for the queen of all queens, RuPaul herself. Drag Race enthusiast and acting legend Richard E. Grant joins Mama Ru as celebrity guest on the judging panel alongside Michelle Visage and Alan Carr. And so, as the queens take to the global stage for the first time, the questions remain: Who will impress Mama Ru the most? Who will be the bottoms of the week? Who will be the tops of the week? And who will be the first queen to sashay away? Nothing is certain. No one is safe. In a cunning twist, in this game, it’s the top two queens who engage in a lip-sync battle, with the winner earning the right to eliminate one of the bottom queens. It could be anyone’s crown.

Let the games commence, and may the best drag queen win!
