Here's the filming locations of seasons 1 to 3.

RuPaul's Drag Race UK is back, back, back again and it's better than ever.

We're only two episodes into season 3 and we've already seen some extremely awkward moments, shady jibes, a few truly sickening runway lewks and an injured queen. All the chaos isn't without reward, of course. All the queens are pushing themselves to the limits in order to win the coveted title of the UK's Next Drag Superstar.
