More than a year after the mega-successful first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK aired back in 2019, RuPaul will be returning to our screens with a new batch of queens for 2021.
There’s just a week to go until season two begins on BBC Three and if that wasn’t enough to get viewers excited, fans have now been treated to another trailer for the upcoming run.
The short 20-second teaser begins with RuPaul asking, “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” before introducing us to several of the queens who will be competing for the crown.
And then there’s Scottish queen Lawrence Chaney, who pronounces herself “the Susan Boyle of Drag Race UK”.
In total, 12 queens will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of series one winner The Vivienne, with the other Drag Race UK contestants including Cherry Valentine, Bimini Bon Boulash and Ginny Lemon.
Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr are all returning as permanent judges for the second season, and there’s no shortage of exciting guest judges either, with those booked to appear including Lorraine Kelly, Elizabeth Hurley (who appears in the trailer), Jourdan Dunn, Gemma Collins, MNEK, Jessie Ware, and Dawn French.
