Jonathan Ross has revealed today that though he is still looking for a home for the British version of RuPaul’s Drag Race, he won’t host it himself.
There were claims that Jonathan Ross would perhaps host himself but it seems he is only interested in a guest role, or perhaps just producer.
Ross told Attitude today: “I am very happy and keen to get something off the ground, so if me being involved in some way will help, then I will happily oblige, but I think I would be completely wrong to host it.”
The presenter said that his preference would be for original Drag Race host RuPaul to present the show, along with current Big Brother contestant Michelle Visage as a judge.
He also hopes to get some famous British faces involved for a British audience to recognise those on the show, “My idea would be that Ru host it with Michelle and a couple of English faces. I would have thought maybe Alan Carr. He’s a huge fan. And maybe it would be great if we could get some regulars like me, Alan, Graham [Norton] and maybe Paul O’Grady. They love the show.”
In spite of the positivity surrounding the possible UK version, there doesn’t seem to be any luck yet. “What I wanted to say was one: that there’s nothing happening right now, and two: I’m still working on it and talking about it!”
