Here’s when RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 will air in the UK

Time to get those engines started...

By Will Stroude

You’ve met the queens, you’ve seen the sick’ning line-up of guest judges, but the question has remained: just when will RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 air in the UK?

Well, the answer is here, kitty gurl, and you better start those engines, because Netflix have confirmed that season 12 episodes will land on the streaming service every week from next Saturday 29 February, just hours after they’ve aired in the US.

Episodes on of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked will also arrive at the same time, so British viewers won’t be denied any of the backstage tea we’ve come to know from the series’ drama-filled spin-off (we’ve still not recovered from that Yvie Oddly/Miss Vanjie, Silky Nutmeg Ganache incident last year).

Joining RuPaul, Michelle Visgade, Ross Mathews and Carson Kressley as guest judges this year will be: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Chaka Khan, Daisy Ridley, Daniel Franzese, Jeff Goldblum, Jonathan Bennett, Leslie Jones, Nicki Minaj, Normani, Olivia Munn, Rachel Bloom, Robyn, Thandie Newton, Whoopi Goldberg and Winnie Harlow.

Meanwhile, the queens for season 12 have been confirmed as: Aiden Zhane, Brita, Crystal Methyd, Dahlia Sin, Gigi Goode, Heidi N Closet, Jackie Cox, Jaida Essence Hall, Jan, Nicky Doll, Rock M. Sakura, Sherry Pie and Widow Von’Du.

RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 premieres next Friday 28 February on VH1 in the US and arrives on Netflix on Saturday 29 February in the UK.
