When does RuPaul's Drag Race start on the BBC, will 'The Queen' be on it and who could guest star?

But before you catch up on all the Drag Race lingo, here is all the information on when the show will start and what you can expect from it.

When does RuPaul's Drag Race start on the BBC?

We don't have an exact start date for RuPaul's Drag Race just yet.

However, we do know that the glamourous show will hit BBC Three as an eight-parter.

The Sun's Bizarre column exclusively revealed the news and shared that a TV source spilled all the tea.

The source said: "This is a massive coup for the Beeb as lots of other UK channels wanted this show.

"It will follow the exact same format as the American version with British twists and some famous guests.

"It will be filmed in London and casting directors will be searching for the best drag artists Britain has to offer – there'll be a huge budget for costumes and production and bosses are hoping that a star is born.

"It's really exciting for everyone involved and is expected to draw a lot of new fans to the franchise. RuPaul has a cult following so it's massive news."

Will 'The Queen' be on it?

The Queen herself, the iconic RuPaul, is expected to be fronting the programme as always.

He said: "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.”

We're not sure if the Duchess of Sussex will be allowed on the show considering royal protocols, but nevertheless, the challenge is sure to be jaw-dropping.

Who could guest star?

The legendary reality competition kicked off in America back in 2009, making it nearly a decade old.

The American version has seen countless mega-stars and talented names appear as guests.

From Lady Gaga, Pamela Anderson and Ariana Grande to Demi Lovato, Adam Lambert, and Christina Aguilera, the series has welcomed them all.

RuPaul has also hosted some British celebs including Graham Norton, Sharon Osbourne, and Olivia Newton-John.

Perhaps, some of these faces will make an appearance in the British version.

The American version of the show has also hosted Graham Norton

If not those, we can be sure that some other famous British stars will join the honourable judges of the show. Jessie J, Rita Ora or Cheryl, perhaps, who are known for their glam and fashion choices.

But, considering the show is all about empowering drag queens, the show might invite some RuPaul's Drag Race alumni.

We can't help but think of Fame Charlie Hides who was the first British queen on the show in 2017.

Or, how about some famous British queens? Jodie Harsh, who has 56k followers on Instagram, recently posted a photo of RuPaul with the caption: "She is coming: Start your engines! RuPaul's Drag Race UK #2019".

Other names that spring into mind are Danny Beard, and Cheddar Gorgeous.
