British pop star Cheryl and iconic Swinging ’60s model Twiggy have been announced as guest judges on the forthcoming first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.


The duo will join Maisie Williams, Geri Horner, Jade Thirlwall, Michaela Coel and Andrew Garfield in the guest-judge role, with Graham Norton and Alan Carr appearing on the show as rotating resident judges.

Commenting on the news, Cheryl said: “I am a huge fan of Drag Race. I have always admired the work and dedication that goes into drag and have learned over the years that it is an art form. It is not only fun and glamorous but equally as skillful and admirable, I find it incredibly inspiring. I just love the makeup, creativity and the drama. I am honoured to be a guest judge!”


Twiggy - who is also known nowadays, since being appointed a Dame, as Dame Lesley Lawson - is also looking forward to contributing to the show: “You see the most gorgeous women in the most glamorous outfits. I love the creativity of the clothes and the makeup. I’ve been to a few drag shows and they’re brilliant fun.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will be screened on BBC Three in the autumn.
