The Drag Race UK season three cast has been Ru-vealed ahead of the hit show’s return.

It’s been approximately five minutes since Lawrence Chaney was named winner of Drag Race UK season two, and yes, Drag Race All Stars is literally airing right now, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t gagging for more.

Drag Race UK season three is coming to BBC Three this September, it’s been confirmed, with 12 new queens competing for the title of the UK’s next drag superstar.

It’s the first season in Drag Race herstory to have a cisgender woman drag artist compete – Victoria Scone.

Over half of the queens hail from London, with eight contestants calling the capital home, and for the first time in Drag Race UK herstory, we have a returning queen from seasons past – Veronica Green, who was forced to bow out of season two after testing positive for COVID-19.

Without further ado, here are the 12 queens making up the Drag Race UK season three cast.

Named for the god of the afterlife, Anubis celebrates her Egyptian heritage through her drag and has been in the music industry since her teenage years.

“I’m an an old lady inside a teenager’s body,” says the 19-year-old, one of the youngest in the competition, describing her persona as a “weird Dr Seuss character meets my nan”.

Charity Kase (London, England)

Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. Charity’s drag is a “creative mash-up” of the Manchester and London scenes.

She’s creating a “fantasy from another dimension” and and dressed as a dragon for her unveiling. Naturally.

Choriza May (Newcastle, England)

Choriza May is originally from Valencia, Spain but now lives in Newcastle.

A “sexy mama” and “the queen of drama”, she’s a “walking stereotype” and explains her name with: “I’m Spanish, I have a sausage.”

The “pocket rocket of UK drag” is Lisa Simpson on acid. Hailing from Burnley, she made her name in London as a dancing queen (she’s trained in ballet, freestyle, disco, ballroom and latin).

“I have no time for snottiness, in my house everyone is welcome,” she says.

Ella Vaday (London, England)

The “drag beast from Dagenham East”, Ella Vaday has starred in West End shows including Wicked and the Book of Mormon as a trained singer, actor and dancer.

“A little bit of eye candy for the dads”, Kitty promises that while her “forehead doesn’t move, her legs do”.

A self-proclaimed hun, she’s all about “the Bs – busty blonde, bubbly”, and does a cracking Nadine Coyle impression. Roll on Snatch Game!

Krystal Versace (London, England)

One of the youngest queens of the season at 19, has been experimenting with make-up since she was 12, and already considers herself “the full package”.

“When I’m on that stage, I’m gonna make sure that crowd is entertained, left feeling gagged, gooped, all of the above”.

River Medway (Kent, England)

Hailing from Medway in Kent, River’s drag is “camp, feel good and shallow”.

Describing herself as “50 per cent British, 50 per cent Singaporean and 100 per cent a crossdresser”, she’s looking forward to exploring her heritage and is ready to tackle a Rusical.

Scarlett Harlett (London, England)

The “cockney princess” and “queen of the East End”, Scarlett Harlett is proud of her council estate roots and is the first to take the p**s out of herself.

“I’m cheeky, I’m classic and common as hell,” she says.

Vanity Milan says she’s “like a fart, silent but deadly”.

She’s been doing drag just for a year, but says she’s already gone from 0-100. Serving “unapologetic Blackness”, she’s here to “throw it down” and win the crown.

The first cis woman to compete in Drag Race herstory is Cardiff’s “camp, cabaret disco diva”.

“Some people want to put a label on it and call me an AFAB drag queen, but I am just a drag queen,” she says. “Drag is for everyone and I’m here to show you how.”

A professionally trained singer, actor and dancer, Victoria is no “fragile flower” and is here to have fun, and win.
