    Paul O'Grady also confirmed by Alan Carr on Radio 2 (he possibly wasn't suppsoed to reveal that).

    It would be a travesty if he wasn't given what an icon of UK drag he is.

    I think this may be the first ever drag performer to appear alongside Rupaul on the panel (albeit not in drag).

    Also 10 people have received their offers and briefs for lip sync songs and runway looks this week. Obvs I couldn't find out who is on but my source was like "just look for which drag performers disappear off social media for a few weeks from March 1st" lol

    I am very excited for a UK version, but at the same time I am afraid it will be a let down. I think the UK scene has a lot of interesting queens, but knowing that Ru is involved it could all be a bit dull. The fact that Alan and Graham have been confirmed as the other judges says everything. I mean, I do like them very much, but why them? What is their relation to drag? It is just a copy of the US panel- Ru, Michelle and two, middle ages white gay men. Groundbreaking, Ru!!

    Paul O’Grady as well? The judging desk is gonna have to be long! Or is he just a guest one week?

    Definitely here for UK lipsyncs, and some Kylie (not IWGC).

    Sort of hoping Paul drags Lily out for this though.

    Why were Michelle and Courtney on UK Big Brother? Are they famous over there?

    Only in the community. UK Celebrity Big Brother is known for having people who are not famous

    I really hope someone does soap characters on Snatch Game i.e. Dot Cotton, Pat Butcher, Gail Platt.

    Shade

    As for authenticity I think this might remind us more of the older US series’

    I don’t think their allowed do characters from other shows for copyright reasons or something? I think they actually have to play the person themselves

    I think they have to play real people rather than fictional characters.

    There are ways around it though. Like Stacey Layne Matthews playing Monique as her Precious character

    Only 8 episodes.

    Tbh, I feel like this is gonna be an experiment rather than a proper series. The queens on the show were invited by the BBC, they didn't audition.

    Hopefully it works, but damn Ru really needs to slow down at this point.
    That's like 3 drag seasons a year.
    5.05.2009 / 6.22.2011 / 4.24.2013 / 4.25.2013 / 3.1.2014 / 9.13.2014 / 7.21.2016 / 7.14.2018 / 7.15.2018

    Yes, it's just like with S1 of the main RPDR: 8 episodes, 10 queens, most of the queens being invited by the producers, but hopefully no vaseline filter.
