Words: Steve Brown

RuPaul's Drag Race UK is on everyone's lips.

Whether it's picking out your favourite Queen - which were announced earlier this week - or enjoying the first look of the first episode and Mama Ru's catwalk outfit, there's so much to look forward to.

A clip released on Twitter on Thursday (22 August) gives us our first glimpse of Ru's first runway look, an introduction to judges Michelle Visage and Alan Carr, as well as special guest judge Andrew Garfield, who tells Ru his place on the panel feels like a "day in gay heaven". Too right.

And now, fans will be delighted to know that the show is set to arrive on BBC Three on October 3.

Writing on the official Twitter account for the first ever UK version, it says: "We are sick to death of you children asking when the show is coming, quite frankly I came here to have a good time and I'm feeling very attacked right now.

"Anyway, @BBCThree's #DragRaceUK is coming out at 8pm on October 3rd and will be airing every week!"
