The BBC has got fans excited after they announced when Drag Race UK season 3 will be hitting our screens again – bring on the Queens!

Sass, a lot of strutting, and a whole new line-up is on its way, after the Ru-veal of 12 queens were released on social media very recently.

Amid the current Drag Race All Stars series, it was announced that the first ever cis woman will be taking part in RuPaul’s Drag Race season three.

Viewers eagerly anticipating the glittery new season may want to pop the release date in their calendars already, but when exactly is it airing?

Fans react to Drag Race UK season 3 line-up

Several viewers are excited about the line-up, including the return of Veronica Green, who competed on the second series of Drag Race.

One fan said: “Welcome back to #DragRaceUK@veronicaqween!!”

And of course, many are just as entertained by the choice of drag queen names entering the house this year.

“The queens names have absolutely sent me this year”, said a viewer.

However, while some are pleased with the line-up, others are concerned about whether enough ethnic minorities have been included.

A viewer wrote: “#DragRaceUK line up is grand and all that…(I’m #TeamElektraFence#TeamVanityMilan & #TeamVictoriaScone btw) But it’s VERY white isn’t it? Where are the queens of colour!? NOT GOOD ENOUGH.”

“Just one poc! oh ok #DragRaceUK“, said another.
