BBC and World of Wonder are bringing “RuPaul’s Drag Race” across the pond.
Deadline reports that “RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K.” will air on BBC Three in 2019. Over eight episodes, 10 U.K. queens will compete to become Ru’s “Queen of Great Britain.”
RuPaul, who is producing the show, will also serve as host and judge for the British version. Michelle Visage will also be back on the judging panel.
“It is a dream come true to extend our royal family to the United Kingdom with our partners at BBC Three. I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens. And before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a ‘Royal-Mother-To-Be’ runway challenge,” RuPaul said in a statement.
Other international versions of “Drag Race” include Chile and Thailand.
