Pour yourself a cuppa tea—it might be awhile.
Michelle Visage has been busy giving viewers advice on her new series, How’s Your Head, Hun?, so the ultimate squirrel friend joined Lorraine Kelly on Good Morning Britain to discuss her show and how she’s holding up in quarantine.
Visage is an honorary Brit, but she isn’t in the U.K. at the moment; she’s at her house in L.A. with her family. During the video interview, Lorraine and Visage caught up and spoke about hopefully continuing How’s Your Head, Hun? once quarantine is over. Visage was also asked for an update on RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K.—and when fans can expect to see Ru return to the Drag Race main stage.
“I want people to know, rest assured, there will be your Season 2 of Drag Race U.K.,” said Visage. “We’ve got everything ready, we’re just waiting for this ban to lift. Try to stop me.”
As with pretty much every other television and movie production, filming for Drag Race U.K. Season 2 was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“In light of the spread of COVID-19, after much consideration, production on RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. will be temporarily pausing filming both in consultation with and supported by the BBC,” a BBC spokesperson told Daily Mail back in March. “We will continue to review all productions on a case by case basis and will continue to follow the latest news and advice from the Foreign Office, World Health Organisation, and Public Health England.”
Filming was already underway at Pinewood Studios, but a source told The Sun that continuing production was “deemed far too risky” with contestants, talent, and production teams all on set.
“At the moment the plug has been pulled completely on the show and as it stands, the second series of Drag Race is on hold,” the source added. “It’s awful for everyone involved, people aren’t working and the studios are empty. But obviously the health of everyone on the show comes first.”
Drag Race U.K. was renewed for a second season in November.
“I want to thank the BBC and all our fans for their overwhelming support of RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K.,” RuPaul said in a statement. “This season’s queens proved that Britain’s Got Charisma Uniqueness Nerve and Talent and I want to see more! Here’s to another season of love, laughter and light!”
Does Visage’s update have you feeling much betta?
