What more could one want”?
Drag Race UK is also known for its plethora of celebrity cameos, and they are in no short order on the latest season.

Vorderman & Burke will be the celebrity players on the iconic Snatch Game challenge, Hauer (of Strictly Come Dancing fame) offers a hand on the now fan-favorite Rusical challenge & Claudimar Neto offers assistance through the all dancing & singing Finale Eleganza Extravaganza number!
Vogue royalty Edward Enniful OBE is going to be doing a Werk Room walkthrough with Ru to offer the queens some invaluable fashion advice & is thrilled to be part of this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK saying “I’ve been an avid fan of Drag Race for many years, so much so that even my beloved Boston Terrier Ru, is named after the legend that is RuPaul. I am honoured to join as a guest on this year’s show and look forward to seeing what incredible visions the queens have in store for us all.”
