On BBC Three's RuPaul's Drag Race UK, 10 queens from all over the UK will compete to become the nation’s first drag superstar.As can be expected from Drag Race, there will be plenty of innuendoes, filthy humour and a whole lot of shade. The contestants are: Divina de Campo, 35, from West YorkshireCrystal, 34, from LondonThe Vivienne, 27, from LiverpoolScaredy Kat, 20, from WiltshireGothy Kendoll, 21, from LeicesterCheryl Hole, 25, from EssexSum Ting Wong, 30, from BirminghamBlue Hydrangea, 23, from BelfastBaga Chipz, 29, from LondonVinegar Strokes, 35, from London

RuPaul will be joined by Drag Race regular and current Strictly Come Dancing contestant Michelle Visage, while Alan Carr and Graham Norton will also feature as regular panellists.There are also a wealth of guest judges who will be starring throughout the series including Maisie Williams, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall, Geri Horner, Cheryl, Michaela Coel and Andrew Garfield.The first episode introduced the 10 contestants, before plunging them in at the deep-end for a headless photoshoot.Posing without a head, and then as just a head, the Queens had to come up with a witty remark for how they had ended up decapitated.

Talking about the differences between the US and UK editions in a BBC, Ru said: “Well the British queens, they do a lot of tongue and cheek.“And they can be very very cutting but in an intellectual way.“It’s going to be interesting for audiences around the world to try to decipher some of the lingo.“That’s been hard for me too. The other day one of the girls said that she had the ‘mouth of a navvy’ – I didn’t know what that was.”
