The BBC hasn’t yet officially revealed the show’s cast yet. However, we can expect all queens to be revealed before the start of September when all ten are slated to appear at New York City’s Drag Con.
The British are coming, bbs! ???????? Meet the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, headed across the pond to #DragCon NYC! ???? @dragraceukbbc
Perhaps the most well-known name on the rumoured list, Mancunian De Campo has appeared on The Voice UK, All Together Now (as one of the show’s 100 judges), MTV’s A-Z of Drag and Big Brother’s Bit on the Side. Although not confirmed, she has said in the past she would audition for the UK version of Drag Race.
Self-described as the “dancing diva of Essex” and the “Gemma Collins of drag”, Hole bases her act on – you guessed it – X Factor and Girls Aloud star Cheryl. And this could make some very interesting viewing, with Cheryl confirmed as one of Drag Race’s guest judges.
A Drag queen and DJ, Kendoll looks like, well, a gothy Ken doll – in drag. And Drag Race fans predict she’ll strut into the workroom – all her social media went suspiciously quiet during April 2019 when the show is rumoured to have been filmed.
Although the biggest drag Youtubers in the UK, many are expecting Novympia to appear on the show. However, the drag duo (Olympia and Nova) previously confirmed to RadioTimes.com they wouldn’t be competing in this year’s competition.
A “Glaswegian Glamazon”, the Scottish drag queen has served up some “deep-fried fierceness” at her Edinburgh Fringe shows and at Glasgow Pride. Like Gothy, Reba’s social media also went quiet during April 2019. She’s publicly said she won’t be appearing on Drag Race UK, but could this be a piece of misdirection?
RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will air on BBC iPlayer this Autumn
