Bad news, British Drag Race fans: All Stars 5 will not be arriving on Netflix this weekend as planned.

The fifth instalment of All Stars was originally set to premiere on the streaming service this Saturday (6 June) after kicking of in the US on VH1 tonight (5 June).

But in a statment shared on Twitter on Friday morning, Netflix UK confirmed that episode one of All Stars 5 will not arrive for another week.

Blamiing factors "factors beyond our control", the streaming giant announced that both episode one and episode two will arrive similtaneously next Saturday (13 June).

The disappointing news means British fans will be left waiting to see a series which has already promised "the biggest shake-up in Drag Race herstory" as fan favourite queens return to the workroom for a second shot at the crown in a season full of gag-worthy twists and turns.

The queens heading back for a second shot at glory are: Alexis Mateo (Season 3, All Stars 1), Blair St. Clair (Season 10), Derrick Barry (Season 8), India Ferrah (Season 3), Jujubee (Season 2, All Stars 1), Mariah Paris Balenciaga (Season 3), Mayhem Miller (Season 10), Miz Cracker (Season 10), Ongina (Season 1) and Shea Couleé (Season 9).
