Serving Fish…And Chips: UK On The Hunt For Its Next Drag Superstar


It was only a matter of time before dragmania took over the world: The Daily Star is reporting that British TV personality Jonathan Ross is planning to sissy that walk across the pond.

“I’ve been working with Jodie on a UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Ross said, referring to Limey drag queen Jodie Harsh. “Unfortunately we have had to take a break because of some family issues. But we’re hoping to pick it up again in the near future. I am definitely serving ’middle-aged-realness!’”


Ross, a “huge fan” of Drag Race, also has a special place in his heart for Meth—the drag-queen host of Meth’s Lab in Camden, where RPDR superstars like Alyssa Edwards and Raja have been spotted.

With the UK joining in on the international kiki, here’s hoping for a drag U.N. Imagine all the werq that could get done if nations just  read a bitch instead of  going to war.

Release the nukes!
