From the Queens to the big twist, here's all the tea on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 5.

There are three things that are certain in life – death, taxes and another season of RuPaul's Drag Race.

RuPaul just won't rest and between the regular series, All Stars and the new RuPaul's Drag Race UK, we're never going to have to time to actually leave our houses even if we wanted to.

Next up is the All Stars 5 and we're SO ready to see some of our favourite queens return to the workroom. All Stars 4 saw two queens (Trinity The Tuck and Monét X Change) share the crown for the first time in Drag Race herstory. And, after all the twists and turns of the last series, we can't even begin to guess what stunt Ru will pull next.

So, here's all the juicy details, release date information and Queens coming to All Stars 5.

When will RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 5 start on VH1?

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 5 kicks off on 5 June at 8pm on VH1. It was previously announced that the show would air on Showtime, but has since gone back to its home at VH1.

On an episode of What’s the Tee with Michelle Visage, RuPaul revealed that Drag Race Season 12 and All Stars were filmed back-to-back. Ru let slip some All Stars 5 tea whilst chatting with Michelle about his packed schedule. He said: "We’re doing All Stars and then we’re doing season whatever," and Michelle then asked: "Are we allowed to say we’re doing All Stars?"

He replied: "I don’t know. Child, you know what? Listen. You know, these people, Netflix people, saying, 'Don’t be telling people when AJ and the Queen is starting.' I’m like, 'Really? Honestly? Are we still there?' We’re at a level now Michelle, where these thirsty bitches turn a fucking clickbait story into whatever the fuck we say. I'm like, 'Really? That's not even a story? I've been told to not say a goddamn thing anymore. It’s hard."
