Here's a great way to start the week! The category is uplifting news and RuPaul's Drag Race UK will be serving a second series in early 2021 and we cannot wait.
The highly anticipated second series follows the runaway success of the first season, which aired on BBC Three back in 2019.
As if the news couldn't get better, RuPaul's Drag Race UK and BBC Three are opening up the application process for series three today - yes you read that right, a third series! The search for yet another fabulous set of queens will continue for many more episodes to come.
RuPaul Charles, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr will all be returning to our screens for series two, bringing some much needed joy to the UK and, let's face it, the world!
Just like the first series, which had an endless supply of extra special celebrity guests including Jade Thirlwall from Little Mix and actor Andrew Garfield, series two will also welcome amazing guests stars.
You will have to wait and see who the twelve incoming queens are, but we are sure the second series will be even bigger and bolder than the first!
The queens will battle it out in the Olympics of Drag to claim the title of the UK' Next Drag Superstar over 10 weeks. In series one, The Vivienne was crowned RuPaul's very first Drag Race UK Superstar with Divina De Campo and Baga Chipz both runners' up.
Generating many memes, garnering huge critical acclaim, picking up numerous award nominations, and even breaking into the music charts with a top ten single, series one of RuPaul's Drag Race UK triumphantly slayed for BBC Three, with a huge 15.6 million requests on iPlayer so far.
Speaking about the new series, head judge RuPaul said: "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.
"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."
Fiona Campbell, Controller of BBC Three, added: "We're very happy to confirm that series two of RuPaul's Drag Race UK is on its way very soon and with 12 new queens to meet, it's even bigger than the first series and we can't wait for you to see it in early 2021."
It's time to Ru-start your engines!
