RuPaul's Drag Race is back this weekend!!

It's the utter uncalled for third season of Drag Race All Stars...we're happy it's here to fill the gap before season 10 in September but it's very quickly appeared on our screens following the success of the exceptional All Stars 2 season two back in Autumn 2016.

The cast is made up of queens who might not be classed as "All Stars" (none reached the top 3) but are definitely drag queens who are "most improved" since they last appeared on the show....Aja, Trixie, Bendella, Kennedy, Morgan, Milk, Shangella, Chi Chi and Thorgy plus a mystery 10th queen all return to the runway.

We're routing for Trixie and Shangella and can't wait to see some old faces from different seasons compete against each other even if I thought I would have been happy if I'd never had to hear Ben De La Creme's nazel voice on TV ever again. *shudders* (it's like nails down a chalkboard!)

This season is not on Netflix but is being shown on Comedy Central UK two days after it's shown in the US (10pm Saturdays)... Or you can download it and watch it on Friday before all the drag queens you follow on social media ruin it for you!

Here's a sneak peak of the first 15 minutes if you just can't wait...
