RuPaul just announced a UK version of Drag Race, coming to BBC3 in 2019.
So we can’t help but think about who the best guest judges would be to make us Brits proud.
If we could fulfil our wildest guest judge fantasies, these would be our pick – in no particular order:
This international supermodel has already appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race… sort of. Naomi Smalls took her name from Campbell, then Shea Couleé played her in the snatch game. It’s about time she guest judged the show!
Graham Norton has already judged an episode of All Stars 2 and he was absolutely hilarious! The Irish talk show host is hugely popular among UK audiences.
Remember when Dame Judi Dench sent in a congratulatory message during season 10 of RuPaul’s Drag Race? We do and we just know she’s itching to be a judge on Drag Race. And she’d be incredible too!

Rebecca ‘Cock Destroyers’ More
Adult film star Rebecca More rose to fame online last month for her explicit adult content. Her video calling herself a ‘cock destroyer’ soon became a viral meme among LGBTI audiences.
She’s fun, friendly and super sex-positive.
South London pop star MNEK (Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike) knows a thing or two about showbiz. He’s previously written hits for Beyonce, Kylie and Madonna, as well as his own debut album Language.
He could take us to Paradise on the judging panel any day!
This list would not be complete without a Spice Girl and Mel B is the perfect choice. She’s previously been a judge on X Factor UK, America’s Got Talent, The Voice Kids Australia and Australia’s Got Talent.
Try to name a more qualified judge.
Mel B also exclusively told us she’d be open to a relationship with a woman again.
Model, presenter and actress Jameela Jamil would be incredible as a judge on Drag Race. She’s a strong campaigner for feminism, body positivity and realistic representation of women in the media.
Little Mix actually did a music video featuring Drag Race queens Alaska, Courtney Act, and Willam.
But Jade herself is a self-confessed super fan of drag. She even hosted a drag queen-themed birthday party.
British model and activist Monroe Bergdorf knows a thing or two about makeup as a contributing Beauty Editor of Dazed magazine.
Maybe she could help influence RuPaul to be more trans-inclusive?
The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins would be a hilarious addition to the show. She has amazing one liners from previous appearances on Celebrity Big Brother, as well as I’m A Celebrity.
Imagine the GC among the glitz and glamor of fierce drag queens.
Young actor Andrew Garfield is a self-confessed fanatic of Drag Race. He came out as a Miss Vanjie fan earlier this year. With his prior knowledge of the show, he’d be perfect.
Actress Gemma Chan is best known for her recent role as Astrid in Crazy Rich Asians, but she’s been in a whole host of shows (including Doctor Who and Fantastic Beasts). She’s beloved among British audiences.
Forget Breastworld (the Westworld-inspired episode of Drag Race), British actress Thandie Newton stole the leading spotlight on HBO’s Westworld for her portrayal of sentient host Maeve.
Winner of a Primetime Emmy Award for her character arc in the 2016 remake, Newton knows what it takes to snatch a crown. She’s a badass.
The British public fell in love with Freema Agyeman when she starred as Martha Jones in Doctor Who. She then went on to appear as Amanita Caplan, girlfriend of Sense8 trans character Nomi Marks.
This former One Direction band member would be an incredible addition to the RuPaul’s Drag Race panel. He’s fun, quirky and always up for a laugh.
It’s a travesty Kylie’s not already been on the judging panel for the American version of RuPaul’s Drag Race! Although she hails from Down Under, she lives in the UK and is hugely popular among LGBTI audiences here.
Bonus: Prince Harry
He’s gorgeous, down to Earth, cheeky and charming – what could be more fun than watching a young prince among a sea of queens?
