Meet the RuPaul's Drag Race UK series 5 Queens

International drag icon, RuPaul, presides on the judging panel of the multiple award winning competitive reality show famed around the world for its fierce queens, fierce looks, fierce humour, fierce lip syncs, and fierce heartbeat.

Series one, two, three and four of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK have been streamed over 67 million times on BBC iPlayer, continuing to establish the title as a much loved, highly lauded, competitive reality smash hit for BBC Three and of one the BBC’s top activating titles on iPlayer for young audiences.

Start your engines, as a brand new cast of queens stake their kingdom for a Ru Peter badge and vie for RuPaul’s seal of approval in order to win the ultimate drag accolade of being crowned the UK’s Next Drag Race Superstar. Throughout the series, the queens will compete in a variety of challenges and runways to avoid being one of the bottom two queens facing a lip sync for their life and elimination from the competition. The Queen of Drag, Mama Ru will deliver the ultimate verdict on who shantays or sashays away, but each week, Ru is joined on the judging panel by Michelle Visage, an extra special celebrity guest judge and, on a rotational basis, Graham Norton and Alan Carr.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is commissioned by Fiona Campbell, Controller for Youth Audiences, BBC Three and Kalpna Patel-Knight, Head of Entertainment at the BBC. The Executive Producers for World of Wonder are Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, RuPaul Charles, Bruce McCoy and Johnni Javier and the BBC Commissioning Editor is Ruby Kuraishe.
