Plus, there's more fabulous drag content on the way as the new Canada's Drag Race will be available on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer from December, the broadcaster confirmed today.

The Great White North's take on the franchise will drop as a 10-part boxset, along with a special anniversary episode, which will see season 1 winner Priyanka looking back on highlights from season one. 

Here's hoping we get a performance of 'Come Through' starring Priyanka's SE1 sister and ultimate rapstress, Lemon!

"Calling all UK queens!"

The second season of Canada's Drag Race will see 12 queens compete to become Canada's Next Drag Superstar over a series of challenges testing the queens' charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent.

The queens are: Adriana, Beth, Eve 6000, Gia Metric, Icesis Couture, Kendall Gender, Kimora Amour, Océane Aqua-Black, Pythia, Stephanie Prince, Suki Doll and Synthia Kiss.

Head judge and former RuPaul's Drag Race Season 11 queen, Brooke Lynn Hytes will return to preside over proceedings. She will be joined by Brad Goreski, Amanda Brugel, and Traci Melchor, alongside a weekly celebrity guest.
