The UK is getting a new queen, or 12 to be exact. RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 3 is here, and we're anxious to see how the events will unfold. Prepare for glamorous looks, genius makeup tips and some fierce competition. As Mama Ru would advise, "Start your engines."

The US transplant first made its way to the UK in 2019. Since then, it's been a huge success, and fans can't get enough of the self-titled "Olympics of drag". Considering season 1 saw as many as 15 million iPlayer requests in the UK, it's safe to say the new season will be a welcome addition to people's TV lineups. 

When is 'RuPaul’s Drag Race UK' premiering? 

The wait is over, folks. Ru Paul's Drag Race UK season 3 premiered on September 23, 2021 at 7 pm GMT (3 pm ET, 12 pm PT) on BBC iPlayer

The episodes will debut weekly on Thursdays, but the total number of episodes for this season has yet to be revealed. (The more the merrier, though!)
