Two huge names confirmed as RuPaul’s Drag Race UK judges

Graham Norton and Alan Carr have been confirmed as judges for the first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK .

They will join US judge Michelle Visage and RuPaul himself on the panel as well as a celebrity guest judge.

The news will be welcomed by many fans of the hit drag show, who have called for the pair to become judges ever since news of the UK series was announced in December last year.

Each of the presenters are big fans of the show and Graham has even appeared as a guest judge on the original show.

The series will be airing on BBC Three.

Expressing his delight about his panel role, Graham said: "Becoming part of the drag race family makes me ridiculously happy! I can’t wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better weeeeerk!!!"

"Wow! To be sat next to Michelle Visage and Mama Ru as a guest judge on possibly one of my all-time favourite shows EVER is a dream come true," Alan said. "I can’t wait to see what the UK Queens have got in store – it’s going to be sickening! *does death drop*"

As with the original US version, the show will see 10 contestants compete in various individual and team challenges which will culminate in either a performance, runway walk-off or a photo shoot.

At the end, one drag queen is crowned the winner.

RuPaul is ecstatic about the big name signings and quipped: "I was both shocked and delighted when Graham and Alan told me they’d be wearing tucking panties when sitting at the judges’ table. I told them it was not necessary, but they insisted. Now that’s what I call dedication!"
