Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is almost coming, and the complete new cast has been revealed!
The local version of the series, which debuted in 2019, has made Queens such as The Vivienne, Bimini Bon Boulash, and Cheryl Hole household names.
Throughout the season, nine guest judges will assist Drag Icon and judging supremo, RuPaul Charles, in determining who will be granted the coveted title of UK’s Next Drag Race Superstar.
Each week, the queens face challenges that put their drag skills to the test, and while the final decision is made by Mama Ru and Ru’s Drag Race UK besties, Michelle Visage, Alan Carr, and Graham Norton, a slew of celebrity super fans join in on the fun and help decide the queens’ fate.
Aisling Bea, Alexandra Burke, Cush Jumbo, Daphne Guinness, Joel Dommett, Kristen McMenamy, Sophie-Ellis Bextor, Suranne Jones, and Yasmin Finney will be this year’s celebrity judges.
So, who is in the fifth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK? Let’s get to know the queens…
