Steps and Charity Shop Sue among more guest stars on Drag Race UK

Hold onto your wigs for this one

Drag Race UK has Ru-vealed its next lineup of celebrity guests to feature on season three.

With comedian and Bake Off judge Matt Lucas, Strictly Come Dancing star Oti Mabuse, and comedian and actor Kathy Burke having already been announced, the show has today revealed the next batch of stars to appear. 

The BBC has said that the iconic 90s pop group Steps will be offering their expertise to contestants, while Charity Shop Sue, who has long been at the top of the list for fans’ guest judge requests, will also be on hand to give advice and to the competing queens and “sec’hand chance realness to the runway”.

Jay Ravell, an award winning choreographer, will also be returning. H from Steps said of the announcement: “As mentors we took no prisoners! We worked the queens hard... and it paid off. It’s going to be an iconic episode. It was no drag-edy!” 

Charity Shop Sue said of her eagerly anticipated debut on the show: “We love that it gives people the confidence to be their authentic selves and to shine bright – no one should ever dim our light for anybody.”

Season three of Drag Race UK will see the franchise’s first ever cis woman compete to be the next drag superstar. 27-year-old Victoria Scone from Cardiff said in a press release that her casting “feels right”. She added: “I definitely didn’t invent the art of drag for women. I am not the first and I certainly won’t be the last. Me being here is political, but you can just have fun with it. That’s why I started. I just wanted to entertain people and that’s what we’re going to do.”

Also joining the new line-up is last season’s Veronica Green, London’s Vanity Milan, Scarlett Harlett, and Charity Kase, Kent’s River Medway and Krystal Versace, Birmingham’s Kitty Scott-Claus, Essex girl Ella Vaday, Lancashire’s Elektra Fence, Newcastle’s Choriza May, and Brighton’s Anubis.

And, of course, RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, and Alan Carr are returning to judge the ten-week competition, which is due to start in September on BBC iPlayer.
