RuPaul’s Drag Race is returning for season 14 and, once again, a gag-worthy list of spectacular celebrity guest judges will be appearing on the show.

Lizzo, Ava Max, Alicia Keys and Taraji P. Henson were among the stars confirmed when the new trailer dropped on Thursday (9 December).

They join a stellar line-up of celebrities that also includes Andra Day, Loni Love, Christine Chiu, Dove Cameron, Nicole Byer, Ts Madison, Alec Mapa and Dulce Sloan.

Mama Ru, Michelle Visage, Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley will return as full-time judges.

But that’s not all – prepare to enjoy virtual appearances by Jennifer Lopez and Sarah McLachlan, as well as special guest appearances by Norvina and Leslie Jordan.

The latest season of the long-running drag reality competition series will premiere on 7 January, 2022.

In a major change for UK fans, the new season will be streaming exclusively on World of Wonder’s platform, WOW Presents Plus.

UK subscribers will be able to watch the new episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race every Thursday, followed by episodes of Untucked quickly afterwards.

Fans have been counting down the days till the new season kicks off after reigning champion Symone unveiled the new crop of queens vying for the title of America’s next drag superstar.

This season’s queens includes the show’s first straight, cisgender male competitor, Maddy Morphosis.

Season 14 also boasts two trans queens, Kerry Colby and Kornbread “The Snack” Jere among the hopefuls vying for the coveted title, crown and sceptre and lush $100,000 cash prize.
