Give! Us! More! Drag!

We've already fallen in love with RuPaul's Drag Race UK and now we're getting another spin-off. RuPaul has just announced that there will be a celebrity edition of the Emmy award winning show. Gentlemen, start your engines!

Basically, the show will work by having three celebrity guests who will have a fabulous drag transformation every episode. As you know, mastering drag takes years, so they won't be expected to go it alone. Each celeb contestant will be helped by a member of RuPaul's Drag Race royalty.

Drag Race alum Alyssa Edwards, Asia O’Hara, Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, Trinity the Tuck, Trixie Mattel, and Vanessa "Miss Vanjie" Mateo, will all help out on the programme.

Now, let's get down to the prizes. RuPaul's Drag Race UK received criticism from fans for not offering any cash prizes, but rest assured the winning celebrity will not walk away empty-handed. Not only will they win the title of America's Next Celebrity Drag Superstar, they'll receive a cash prize, which will be donated to the charity of their choice.

The all-star line-up hasn't been announced yet, but with the likes of Lizzo and Miley Cyrus having served as guest judges, we're expecting some huge names.

RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race will launch in 2020 but in the meantime, there's lots more drag content to keep us occupied. Drag Race Canada is on the way featuring season 9 runner-up Brooke Lynn Hytes as a judge. Drag Race: All-Stars 5 has also been confirmed and then season 12 will kick off shortly after.
