RuPaul’s Drag Race UK confirms Andrew Garfield, Michaela Coel as guest judges


Andrew Garfield and Michaela Coel have become the latest confirmed guest judges for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.

The first ever British series of of the drag queen competition will air on BBC Three this autumn.

A number of guest judges will appear on the panel each week and two more names have been confirmed.

As a drag race uber fan, Andrew Garfield’s Spidey-senses were sent in to overdrive at the chance of sitting next to Mama Ru herself. Andrew appears as an extra special guest judge in the very first episode of Drag Race UK, where he gleefully serves up Hollywood realness and enthusiastic judging.

He says: “The creativity is always totally outside the box and it’s one of the many reasons I watch and love this show – when someone does something I wouldn’t have thought of myself.”

Also confirmed as a guest judge is two-time Bafta-winning Michaela Coel (Black Mirror, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Chewing Gum).

Michaela says of joining the show: “I love that you have to dare, you have to dare and you have to drop all of your societal norms and restraints that you’ve been taught and you have to dare to embody something higher.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will showcase the most fabulous drag queens that the UK has to offer and be searching for the UK’s First Drag Superstar.

Guest judges Michaela Coel and Andrew Garfield will be joined by previously confirmed names Masie Williams, Geri Horner and Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall.

The guest judges will each feature in one episode alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage.

And joining them will be Graham Norton and Alan Carr, who will appear as rotating resident judges across the eight-part series.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will air on BBC Three in the autumn with an exact release date yet to be confirmed.
