Netflix UK has announced the return of its popular YouTube Series I Like to Watch, with The Vivienne being joined by Scottish legend and fellow Drag Race UK winner, Lawrence Chaney.

Fresh off her Drag Race UK series two win, Lawrence Chaney (who's admitted she can't sing or dance, but is so witty) joins her series one counterpart for a winner's circle watch-a-thon. Just as long as there are no leaves on the line from Glasgow, that is.

Episode one, which premiered on Friday (14 May), sees Lawrence and The Viv uniting for the first time to sit down and offer their hilarious and/or stinging critiques of Netflix comedy-drama Special.

I Like to Watch UK works like a drag version of Gogglebox, but with tighter tucks, bigger hair and faces beat for the gods.

It follows a similar series on Netflix's US channel hosted by 'living Barbie doll', Trixie Mattel, and the 'Russian bisexual transvestite hooker' (her words, not ours!) Katya Zamalodchikova. But we can just call her Katya. (UNHhhh!)

Each episode will see The Vivienne - who recently bagged a guest spot on ITV soap Emmerdale - joined by a different queen to deliver their verdicts on different Netflix shows.

Drag Race royalty Baga Chipz, Monet X Change, and Cheryl Hole have all previously featured, but a new set of British queens is being promised for this series. 

Silence! Bring back our girls!

New episodes of I Like to Watch are available every Friday on the Netflix UK YouTube channel.
