It’s been five long years since RuPaul’s Drag Race launched its UK counterpart… and in that time there’s already been one star we’ve been waiting for to visit the show.
Friends… the stars finally aligned, and it happened.
Yes, Jane McDonald is coming to Drag Race.
On Tuesday night, it was revealed that the iconic cruise ship singer would appear on the series RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs. The upcoming The World, where he will play the Snatch Game.
And as if that wasn’t enough – he did it with Sinitta.
“Sitting with Ru was a dream, each of the queens was spectacular and incredible and showcased talent from all over the world,” Jane enthuses.
“May the best drag queen win!”
Sinitta agrees: “I’m so excited to be a part of Snatch Game on Drag Race, where drag has evolved and become more than just female impersonations but a creative exploration and incredible craziness!”
The second season of UK vs. The World launches on BBC Three on Friday 9 February, and will feature competitors from the Drag Race franchise around the world competing for the title of Queen Mother of the World.UK Drag Race Queens vs. World season two
