We've been gripped by the drama of RuPaul's Drag Race over 10 seasons.

The show puts drag queens through their paces and has been a success, with all seasons now being added to Netflix.

And now...huge news...there is going to be a UK version of the show, available to stream in 2019!!

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will make its appearance on BBC Three, with next-level drag queens across the UK given the opportunity to seek stardom.

A source told The Sun:

"This is a massive coup for the Beeb as lots of other UK channels wanted this show. It will follow the exact same format as the American version with British twists and some famous guests. [sic]

It’ll be filmed in London and casting directors will be searching for the best drag artists Britain has to offer – there’ll be a huge budget for costumes and production, and bosses are hoping a star is born. It’s really exciting for everyone involved and is expected to draw a lot of new fans to the franchise."

Twitter has lit up with the news.

Long-term judge Michelle Visage confirmed on Twitter Ru Paul would obviously be presenting, and she would of course still be a judge.

She tweeted:

"yes @RuPaul is hosting, it is @RuPaulsDragRace after all….and yes OF COURSE i will be right beside him!"

She added:

"guys. yes. of COURSE i am a judge…..i am THE judge!!"
