Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams is to be a guest judge on the BBC's RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

"What I love the most about drag is the story of the drag queen behind the facade," Williams told the BBC.

"I think that so much of drag comes from a place of real pain and seeing how that transforms into a character is so interesting to me. I love that about art and about drag."

The UK adaptation of the Emmy-winning US hit will premiere on BBC Three later this year, with presenters RuPaul and Michelle Visage joined by resident judges Graham Norton and Alan Carr.
