Attention! Drag Race UK has finally announced season three’s start date

There’s only a couple of weeks to go until it’s back in our lives


After teasing us over the last few months, dropping the sickening cast reveal and drip feeding us guest judges and special visitors crumb by crumb, BBC Three has finally announced the start date for Drag Race UK season three. It’s exciting, it’s soon and I can barely contain myself with my excitement. Yep, Drag Race UK will be sashaying back onto iPlayer on September 23rd. That means there’s just two weeks to go until we can be gagged by the UK queens’ charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent all over again.

What time will Drag Race UK get added to iPlayer?

BBC Three has just announced that, exactly like season two earlier this year, weekly episodes of Drag Race UK will get added to iPlayer at 7pm on Thursdays. That means that in two weeks time Thursdays suddenly become better and more important than your weekend.

Top tip: Check iPlayer a few times in the lead up to 7pm. Sometimes the episodes get uploaded and go live just a little bit before 7 and then you can get your Drag Race UK fix as soon as humanly possible.

Is iPlayer the only place to watch?

If you’re watching from the UK, iPlayer is the best and easiest place to watch Drag Race UK. It’s free to view there too, of course. However, episodes will also be uploaded to Wow Presents Plus. So if you live overseas or are travelling, you can sign up to the streamer of all things drag and get your fix there too. Easy!

Drag Race UK seasons one and two have been huge hits for BBC and have been incredibly well received by the Drag Race fandom and critics alike. Not long to go until we can see how season three is going to fair. Start your engines!
