Filming has started on Drag Race UK


Drag Race UK officially started filming today (25 March) in a location just outside central London.

RuPaul and Michelle Visage, both judges, have been in the UK the last few days to prepare for filming.

For these two theatre queens, they’ve been spotted in the West End at Six, a feminist musical about Henry VIII’s wives.

They’ve also been spotted shopping in Oxford Street, Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, and others.

But these opportunities for spotting these drag stars will likely stop now.

Because RuPaul has revealed he will be working six days a week on the show. Michelle, when she’s not filming in London, will be traveling to Dublin to film Ireland’s Got Talent.

And some British drag queens have curiously disappeared off social media.

The rumored queens are:

*The Vivienne

*Baga Chipz

*Cheryl Hole

*Tanya Hyde

*Blu Hydrangea

*Sapphire Stonee

*Divina Da Campo

Divina is already a firm TV favorite – likely best known for her role as a judge on BBC’s All Together Now. Will her classical singing and TV experience mean she has Drag Race UK in the bag?
