The first UK Drag Race season is coming up, squirrel friends! I’m so excited!

For you philistines who know nothing of such things:

“I’m like Tina Turner meets Lizzo meets Kat Slater,” says Vinegar Strokes.

The drag queen is one of the 10 contestants taking part in the very first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, which will be shown on BBC Three.

The original, US version of the show featured contestants competing for a $100,000 prize – the 12th series was announced this week.

RuPaul said: “Each of the UK queens is so unique, so courageous and so special.

“I can’t wait for the UK – and the world – to fall in love with them the same way I did.”

The series starts later this year, hosted by RuPaul.

Drag queen Cheryl Hole will be judged by her namesake – Cheryl Cole – who’s been announced as one of the celebrity guest judges.

Alan Carr, Graham Norton, Jade Thirlwell from Little Mix, Michaela Coel and Andrew Garfield are among the other famous names already announced to be taking part.

The US series has been a huge success since its debut a decade ago.

Right now, I’m rooting for Baga Chipz and Sum Ting Wong, which means they’ll probably be the first eliminated.
