Graham Norton has revealed how the fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK compares to its predecessor. Although the comedian and presenter admits he’s unable to divulge much about the new season because he’s “totally under oath”, he tells GAY TIMES that it’s “really impressive” and boasts “some of the best queens we’ve ever seen”. “It’s a post-COVID season,” teases Graham. “It was very hard for the [season three] queens in COVID because they weren’t making any money and lots of the dressmakers had stopped working. “I think it was really hard during COVID, so this is definitely a post-COVID season and it’s great.
You can look forward to it. You don’t need to worry!” Graham was speaking with GAY TIMES ahead of the release of Queen of the Universe, which launched in the UK on 22 June with the brand new streaming service Paramount+.
The first season of the drag-singing competition sees some of the world’s most talented drag performers compete in front of a pop diva panel, consisting of Leona Lewis, Michelle Visage, Trixie Mattel and Vanessa Williams.
Featuring powerhouse vocals from British, Indian, French, Italian, Mexican, Australian, Chinese, Danish and Brazilian talent, the winner received $250,000 – the highest ever total for a drag competition series.
