It’s here, the Christmas and birthday excitement that RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season four has arrived. The eagerly awaited cast has been announced, and season 4 looks primed to create a whole new set of moments, memes, and memories for the fanbase to consume. 

So let’s say ‘ello, ‘ello, ‘ello to the class of season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK!

Cheddar Gorgeous (38, Manchester)

It’s about time we saw this icon on the show, a well-known staple in the UK drag scene, Cheddar Gorgeous has gone on to create drag SOS a drag show with her family the Haus of Gorgeous. “My drag is a living spectacle. A collage of makeup, costume, and performance. You could see anything at a Cheddar Gorgeous show, as my drag is otherworldly and ethereal. Growing up, I was a bit of a geek and I was enamored by aliens, gods, goddesses, and strange monsters, and now in my drag, I like to harness the energy of science fiction, fantasy, and magic.”

Danny Beard (29, Liverpool)

We’re in for quite a treat with Danny Beard, having appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, this queen can sing. Here to prove why he’s perfect for the show “I’m here to be better. I want to leave the other side of Drag Race UK transformed. I want to show the world my whole self. I’m ready to show them that I can act, I can sing, I’m funny, and I’ve got a big heart. I know I’ve got the minerals. I just hope I can hack the intensity and not get in my head. If they want me to change it up, I’ll change it up. Honestly, I am so nervous and excited to be on Drag Race UK. I can feel a fart brewing!”

Pixie Polite (29, Brighton)

Let’s hope the Brighton curse will be lifted this season, and Pixie breaks the first elimination episode. Brighton has some of the best drag she’s not a one-trick pony “I think I’m quite unique and I’ve done a lot of things in my career. I sing I dance, and I act. I can do comedy and I host. I do a little bit of everything reasonably well. You’ve got to be versatile. You can’t just be a one-trick pony. I’m a many tricked cow of the camp variety. I’m hoping that I can stand out from the crowd in this competition.”

Baby (25, South London)

You can call her baby, be ready to see this queen become a trip threat with her chock-full CV “I pay incredible attention to detail with my looks and performances and I really see myself kind of shaking up the way things are done. I studied musical theater, so I can sing, dance, and act — I’m a bit of a triple threat! I’ve been a stage school kid since I was 10, so being able to showcase all of these skills on the biggest platform is awesome.”

Black Peppa (29, Birmingham)

This icon’s drag name came from the Children’s cartoon show and most famous pig – Peppa Pig “I love spicy food and I always carry hot sauce in my bag. Back when I was growing up in the Caribbean, my mum always grew chillies in her garden and she made her own homemade hot pepper sauce, so I decided to call myself Black Pepper. And later, I was inspired to change the spelling after a chance watching of Peppa Pig! I saw her hang up the phone on her friend because her friend could whistle but she couldn’t. Ha! I thought to myself Peppa Pig is the OG, and that is why I’m Black Peppa with a twist!”

Copper Top (38, Cheltenham)

From a lovely posh spot in the UK is Copper Top who warns the audience “Nobody expects it when a camp bird like me is singing and then suddenly jumps into the splits and everybody is gagged. You’re gonna laugh until you wet yourself, and by the end of that night, you will probably slide into my DMs because, let’s face it, she’s gorgeous.”

Dakota Schiffer (22, Sussex)

Daphne from Scooby Doo meets Hollywood walk of fame, looking like a pastel princess is Dakota Schiffer “I’m Generation Z’s answer to Sharon Tate. My drag is a love letter to the ’60s and the ’90s. I’ve always been intrigued by the ’60s and ’90s supermodel era, and my No. 1 Hollywood icon is Tate in Valley of the Dolls. I worship everything she’s ever been in. She’s such a style icon to me. My drag aesthetic is always beautiful and fashion-first.”

Jonbers Blonde (33, Belfast)

We’ve finally got another Irish queen back for a season, this energetic queen will be here to keep it going 100% “You’re going to see a lot of movement! It’s like coming to watch a crab perform. There’s a lot of moving back and forth. I’m a storyteller too, so, accompanied by my Irish flute, you’ll get a great yarn with plenty of animal and Irish references.”

Just May (32, Essex)

Just May is 100% Essex with her Bodeica reference (a short and brief history lesson was provided) she’s out to show she can do more than just Ginger Spice “I wanted to do drag because Geri stopped being Ginger Spice and so I felt someone had to take over! Geri was always my favorite Spice Girl because she was the loud, bold, brash, bossy ginger of the group and she just spoke to me on so many levels. The biggest misconception that people have about just me and my drag is that I will only do Geri. But sometimes, I wear a red wig without a blonde streak. Wild, I know.”

Le Fil (36, Yorkshire)

Representing the Yorkshire dales is Le Fil looking a vision in Purple, expect performance art and high concept visuals “A typical Le Fil show is a full-on epic pop performance meets fashion and art installation with my own songs, live vocals, my own band, and backing dancers. I call my gigs ‘pop sculptures with extras,’ because they’re music gigs entwined with stories and performance art. I like to give my fans a pop extravaganza, where the sets are like sculptures, the costumes are like couture, and the show is like a piece of live art.”

Sminty Drop (23, Lancashire)

Ever wondered what a life-sized Bratz doll would look like? Well, let’s say hello to the gorgeous Sminty Drop who describes herself as “My drag look is Anna Faris in The House Bunny mixed with Megan Fox in Jennifer’s Body thrown into the adult sized body of a Bratz doll, who has crash-landed down from Doja Cat’s Planet Her.”

Starlet (25, Surrey)

From the Silver Screen to the UK scene, Starlet aims to bring a touch of glamour to season 4 “My look is about exuding the vintage beauty and glamour of the silver screen. I’m a beautiful, young rising star of Hollywood and all eyes are on me. I’m a living walking vintage movie star!”

Guest judges were recently announced for Drag Race UK, and they might just be some of my favorite names. Set to join resident judges Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, and Alan Carr are Spice Girl Mel B, TV icon Alison Hammond, Years and Years Olly Alexander, dance extraordinaire Giovanni Pernice, and many more UK household names.

So get ready to be blown away by another season of UK fun, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season 4 premieres Sept. 22 on WOW Presents Plus in the United States and on BBC Three in the United Kingdom
