RuPaul’s Drag Race UK: How to watch online and catch up on past episodes

Watch and stream RuPaul's Drag Race UK 2021 - what time is it online?

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is on air now and here’s how to watch and catch up on the latest episodes online.


The third series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK started on Thursday, 23 September at 7PM.

The British series will follow the same format as its American counterpart. Contestants will compete in individual or team challenges that test a specific drag queen skill before taking on the Maxi Challenge, the headline moment of each show.

There they may be required to perform, model in a photo shoot, prepare a runway look for a themed challenge before having to face the judges, with one contestant each week eliminated and asked to “Sashay Away”.

RuPaul said of the new UK version: “It is a dream come true to extend our royal family to the United Kingdom with our partners at BBC Three. I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens.”

RuPaul herself will decide who is crowned the UK’s Next Drag Superstar, with fan favourite Michelle Visage by her side as a permanent judge.

Drag Race superfans Alan Carr and Graham Norton have signed up as the resident rotating judges, alternating on a weekly basis alongside various guest judges.
