Guess what's coming in hotter than a fresh pot of tea? RuPaul's Drag Race UK, of course! The new queens have been busy strutting their stuff for Mama Ru, and you need to celebrate accordingly. That's right, hun—a watch party is in order.

Once you've determined how to watch RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 3—BBC iPlayer for those in the UK, WOW Presents Plus for those in the US—you have to gather your group (while acknowledging current health and safety concerns, of course), indulge in some treats and channel your inner queen with fun accessories. Fortunately for fans in Britain, across the pond and around the world, we've got you covered. 

RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 3 premiered on September 23, 2021 (at different times for different locations and streaming services). The series has new episodes every Thursday, but the total number of episodes for the season has yet to be revealed. (The more the merrier, though!)

Start your engines and get ready to party.

'RuPaul Drag Race UK': a brief background

After immediate success in the US, RuPaul's Drag Race UK premiered in 2019 to a very receptive audience. Considering there were over 15 million iPlayer requests in the UK in the first year, award nominations and even a foray into the music scene, we gather that Mama Ru's definitely doing something right. 

Between competitions and runway shows, the queens will keep busy with a slew of tasks, ultimately fighting to win audiences' hearts and the top prize. The show's winners include The Vivienne from season 1 and Lawrence Chaney from season 2. Time will tell who will stun fans during season 3!

Mama Ru: everyone's ready to see what you have up your sleeve!
