We're all sitting here, living our best lives, trying to speed up time so that Drag Race UK will FINALLY AIR on our screens sometime soon.

The creators of RuPaul's Drag Race, World of Wonder, confirmed the big news that a British version of the show was coming to BBC3 on Twitter months ago.

Mama Ru herself issued a statement, writing: “I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens.

Before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a 'Royal-Mother-To-Be' runway challenge.”

With Alan Carr and Graham Norton already announced as celebrity judges for the show, it has just been confirmed that Ginger Spice Geri Horner and Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall will also join the panel.

Opening up about her appreciation for drag, Horner said;

“I just love how drag encourages people to be exactly who they are. This show has brought so much joy and pride to people all over the world, I can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing queens representing the UK in this first ever series."

Jade also gave a joyful statement as another official girlband princess,  saying:

“I love absolutely everything about drag. I love that it’s art. I love how fabulous it is, how fun it is, I love that you can transform your body into a fantastic beautiful woman… the whole thing! I just wish in my next life I can be a drag queen.”

Game of Thrones' most badass assassin, Maisie Williams, has also signed up to be a guest judge.

The show dooesn't have an air date or a trailer as of yet, but we'll be keeping a look out.

Controller of BBC Three, Damian Kavanagh, described the achievement of the BBC acquiring the show: “Needless to say, we’re delighted that BBC Three will be the home of a new UK version of Drag Race.

“It is one of the biggest entertainment titles in the world and anticipation levels for a UK version have been at feverish levels. With heart, humour and the un-imitable RuPaul, Drag Race is going to take BBC Three to a whole new level.”

The show is set to be filmed in London, and casting directors will be searching far and wide for the best drag artists in the UK and Ireland with massive budgets for costumes and production.

RuPaul has an extensive following over in this part of the world, so we'll see if the new queens will give the original USA stars a run for their money.

We can't wait to see what UK and Irish drag artists bring to the party, but with a judging panel as incredible as this, what's not to love?

There's trouble in Para-Spice, it looks like plans for the girlband's world tour could be derailed because of Geri Horner.

Ginger Spice is reluctant to sign up for international tour dates following the Spice Girls' sell-out 13-date tour around the UK last month.

Mel B announced that the group would take their Spice World tour to Australia in February during their final show at London's Wembley Stadium, but Geri is allegedly uncertain.

The 46-year-old infamously quit the Spice Girls in 1998 after an apparent power struggle between the members and Mel B.

The remaining members released their third and final album without Geri, despite her absence from negotiations.

Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, Mel B and Mel C, whose ages range between 43 and 46-years-old, are rumoured to have made £10 million each from the band's reunion.

An insider close to the Spice Girls spoke to The Sun, saying: “The other girls all want to take their Spice World show internationally.

“They all had so much fun and know there is massive demand outside of the UK," they added.

“Geri loved the tour but it was very hard going on her and she really feels like three nights at Wembley Stadium is the perfect high to end on."

The source also mentioned Geri's need to be close to her family;

“She doesn’t really want to be away from her kids for any long stretches and just feels like it might not be worthwhile.”

Mel B previously admitted that she'd let the news slip out prematurely, and that nobody else in the group had confirmed; “So I announced it on stage, yes, without everybody else signing off 100 percent.”
