There's no details yet on which queens will be starring in the series but considering we now have Drag RaceDrag Race UKCanada’s Drag RaceDrag Race Holland, Drag Race Down Under and more, there's more than enough talent to choose from.

The former contestants aren't the only familiar faces we'll see, though. Drag Race UK vs The World will include our favourite judges: RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr. They will also be joined by guest judges, who are yet to be confirmed.

Speaking exclusively to us on Zoom, Michelle teased what to expect from the upcoming series. "Oh, it's totally different. I can't say much. But I can tell you that it is so good. It is so good. It's a format that is very different to regular Drag Race, and even All Stars," she explained.

"I can't wait to film other ones. That's how good it is. It's so exciting to be able to judge queens from around the world.'s so hard. It's really hard with these queens because they're really good. It''re gonna freak out."
