Ten Queens will soon compete to become Ru’s “Queen of Great Britain” as the BBC and World of Wonder take RuPaul’s Drag Race to the United Kingdom.

Reported by Deadline, RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. will air on BBC Three in early 2019, with eight episodes, being planed.

RuPaul, who will not produce the show, will also serve as host, and judge for the British version of the hit series. American singer, television host, radio DJ, and author, Michelle Visage is also reported to be back on the judging panel.

Speaking about the release, RuPaul said, “It is a dream come true to extend our royal family to the United Kingdom with our partners at BBC Three.”

I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens. And 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,” RuPaul said in a statement.

The U.K. version of the show follows on from other international versions of Drag Race including Chile and Thailand.
