RuPaul's Drag Race season 12 may just have crowned its champion, but there's already loads more sickening drag sashaying our way.

If the brand new All Stars wasn't enough, you can also watch the very first season of Canada's Drag Race on BBC next month from 3rd July.

After Canadian queen Brooke Lynn Hytes was crowned runner up in the US version of the show, now, twelve of the country's finest drag artists are being offered the chance to be crowned Canada's First Drag Superstar.

Judging the competition will be Brooke Lynn herself - making history by being the first former contestant to take to the panel.

Plus, American Horror Story actor Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and supermodel Stacey Mckenzie will also be regular judges on the show.

Each week, the judges will be joined by a celebrity guest. We know Michelle Visage will be making an appearance, but you'll have to wait to find out who else Ru has in store!

Unusually, Mama Ru won't be fronting the panel this time around.

But, don't despair! By now we know that everything World Of Wonder touches turns to gold - so, we're sure producers will more than make up for her absence.

The series will still be looking for queens with that all important charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.

And they'll still be expected to sing, act, improv, dance and read, all while turning looks and generally being fierce.

The very first cohort is made up of seasoned queens from all round Canada.

The lineup is: Anastarzia Anaquway, Boa, Ilona Verley, Jimbo, Juice Boxx, Kiara, Kyne, Lemon, Priyanka, Rita Baga, Scarlett Bobo, and Tynomi Banks.

But who will be Canada's first drag superstar? Only time will tell.

"We're all RuPaul, put together," Brooke recently said, discussing her new role.

"Not one of us has all the power. It's a team effort. We all take turns sharing duties, and we all make decisions together!"

Speaking of the series landing on British screens, Ru added: "Canada's Drag Race airing on BBC is further proof that self-expression, creativity and the tenacity of the human spirit resonates around the globe."

This is going to be one for the herstory books!

BBC Three will release the 10-part series weekly on BBC iPlayer, launching every Friday from 3rd July.
