RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is due to start next autumn and two new judges were just confirmed to be part of the first UK series ever! Spice Girls’ Geri Horner and Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall.

Ginger Spice elevated the art of drag, saying: “Drag encourages people to be exactly who they are.” Geri said RuPaul’s Drag Race brings joy and pride to people across the world.

She continued: “This show has brought so much joy and pride to people all over the world, I can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing queens representing the UK in this first-ever series.” she concluded, according to Digital Spy.

Meanwhile, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall said she loves “everything about drag.”

“I love that its art,” she continued. “I love how fabulous it is, how fun it is, I love that you can transform your body into a fantastic beautiful woman… the whole thing! I just wish in my next life I can be a drag queen.”

More judges were also previously confirmed to be part of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK – Maisie Williams, who has starred in HBO’s series Game of Thrones since she was 13, will feature on the BBC Three adaptation of the competition as a celebrity guest judge.

Williams will judge alongside Michelle Visage, who has judged eight seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race in the US. It has also been confirmed that Graham Norton and Alan Carr will be joining the UK edition of the competition as rotating judges.

Alan Carr said the set was ‘like Fort Knox’. Speaking to Digital Spy in May, Carr said that he and the other judges had to follow strict instructions while on set. “It was like, no phones, the most securitised thing ever,” he said.

“It was like Fort Knox. It was amazing to be part of something like that and no one is going to be disappointed.”
