A drag obsessed YouTube account has put together a rumoured shortlist of drag queens who may be taking part in the upcoming UK edition of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and one very popular Dublin queen may have made the cut.

Though the list is largely based off speculation, the YouTuber in question – Drag Exclusive – has gotten it very right in the past. Their prediction video for Season 11 – which was released last June – was spot on.

You can check out the video here.

Here are some of the queens featured:


Known for her comedy and her transformations, Nova describes herself as “the prettier half” of the drag duo Novympia.


Joining her partner Nova on the shortlist is Olympia. The duo are known for their YouTube channel, including the hilarious sketch ‘I Want To Be A Sofa’.

This London-based queen is a self-proclaimed catfish, and obsessed with all things unicorn. This queen is all about beauty and turns some truly gorgeous looks.

Victoria Secret

That’s right! One of Dublin’s most beloved drag queens – and the powerhouse behind Dragged Up – has been rumoured to have been shortlisted for the UK season. Aside from bringing some of the biggest drag acts to little old Dublin, Victoria is an incredible and creative performer in her own right. Her recent ode to Gemma Collins – Thank U, Next  – has captivated audiences both in Dublin and in the UK. Victoria has also worked with GCN in the past, most recently she was the sensational host of our Big Fat Gay Quiz. We know this is just a rumoured shortlist, but there’s no denying we would LOVE to see Miss V werk the main stage.
