RuPaul's Drag Race season 13 may have only just reached its epic conclusion, but another group of queens is already raring to go - albeit in a workroom the other side of the Atlantic.

The 10 queens who'll be competing on Drag Race España, have just been unveiled, giving drag fans their first glimpse of the feroz ('fierce') talent on offer in Spain's first-ever series of Drag Race.

Drag Race España, which airs in the UK and worldwide on WOW Presents Plus from May, will see the following queens battle it out for the title of Spain's Next Drag Superstar: Arantxa Castilla La Mancha, Carmen Farala, Dovima Nurmi, Hugaceo Crujiente, Inti, Killer Queen, Pupi Poisson, Sagittaria, The Macarena and Vulcano.

The queens will be hoping to impress series host and Spanish drag legend Supremme de Luxe, who'll be joined on the judging panel by broadcaster Javier Calvo, fashion designer Ana Locking and actor Javier Ambrossi.

With RuPaul not appearing onscreen, Drag Race España will follow a similar format to international Drag Race franchises including Drag Race Canada and Drag Race Holland.

The Spanish language series will air on ATRESplayer PREMIUM in Spain, with international viewers able to watch the action on WOW Presents Plus with English, Portuguese or Spanish subtitles.

Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed that Drag Race Down Under, which does feature RuPaul and long-time judge Michelle Visage, will air in the UK on BBC iPlayer from this Sunday 2 May.
