Ladies, mark your calendars.

Finally, we have something to celebrate: RuPaul's Drag Race UK have confirmed when we're getting Season 2 and… Season 3 is happening too.

Season 2 will air in early 2021 after filming was delayed back in March because of coronavirus. That means we're getting a fresh batch of the 12 hottest queens the UK has to offer, who will all display their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent in front of the nation with only one being crowned the UK's Next Drag Superstar.

Apparently, the second series is expected to be "even bigger than the first", however, we'll have to wait until next year before we meet the queens and celebrity judges. However, what we do know is that judges RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr will all be returning.

"Looking forward to better days! I'm happy to announce the triumphant return of RuPaul's Drag Race UK. Early in 2021, season 2 will arrive with all the hope, joy, laughter and glitter you've come to expect from our brilliant queens," a statement from Ru himself read.

RuPaul then confirmed some exciting news about Season 3 too. He added: "We're also currently casting season 3 with the best and the brightest Great Britain has to offer. We feel honoured that you've embraced our little show, and our only wish is that we can offer a smile at a time when we can all use it the most."

Casting closes on November 14, so if you think you can top last year's winner The Vivienne's flawless Donald Trump Snatch Game or have a hit that tops 'Break Up (Bye Bye)', then apply now.
