The British Are Coming in the First “RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K.” Trailer

"Prepare for the ride of your life!”

One of the most popular U.K. exports is British television, and now, in the first trailer for RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K., the queens star in their very own Britcom—complete with a laugh track and… facekinis?

In the minute-long preview, RuPaul appears in a magic mirror on the wall announcing to the girls: “Hello, hello, hello! It’s Mama Ru here in search of the U.K.’s very first Drag Race superstar. Prepare for the ride of your life!”


That’s when the living room set transforms into an outrageous disco party where the queens lip sync along to Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love.” There’s even a squirrel wearing a wig?! It’s best not to ask too many questions.

Just watch the trippy trailer below and prepare for the RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. invasion beginning October 3 on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer. Take a gander at the first batch of British Drag Race queens, too, but don’t forget to keep calm and carry on.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
