Graham Norton and Alan Carr have been revealed as celebrity judges on RuPaul's Drag Race when it comes to the UK.

They will appear on the spin-off of the hugely popular US show as rotating resident judges each week, joining RuPaul, Michelle Visage and a guest celebrity judge.

Irish chatshow host Norton said: "Becoming part of the Drag Race family makes me ridiculously happy. I can't wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party."

In a video message on Twitter he joked "maybe this is what the UK's good at."

Meanwhile, comedian Carr commented: "To be sat next to Michelle Visage and Mama Ru as a guest judge on possibly one of my all-time favourite shows ever is a dream come true.

"I can't wait to see what the UK queens have got in store - it's going to be sickening."

Norton previously was a guest on RuPaul's Drag Race in 2016, while Carr interviewed him on Chatty Man.

RuPaul said of the news: "I was both shocked and delighted when Graham and Alan told me they'd be wearing 'tucking panties' when sitting at the judges' table.

"I told them it was not necessary, but they insisted. Now that's what I call dedication."

Filming on the show is expected to take place in London, with ten UK drag artists to be invited to compete.

The show will be available on BBC iPlayer.
