The Drag Race UK season four queens are just as impressed by this year’s guest judge line-up as we are.

This new season, which launches Thursday (22 September), has an incredible celebrity guest line-up, including This Morning‘s Allison Hammond, Sex Education‘s Hannah Waddingham, Dame Joanna Lumley, and, of course, Drag Race‘s fourth Spice Girl, Mel B.
Much like fans, the queens couldn’t contain their excitement at how epic this year’s guest stars are, and revealed who they gelled with the most.

Pixie Polite told PinkNews and other outlets: “Mel B was pretty exciting. I was very obsessed with the Spice Girls when I was a tiny, tiny little boy. I mean, Hannah Waddingham, the same nun from Game of Thrones, pretty iconic. And you’ve got Alison Hammond of Big Brother fame who is also great. It’s all very camp.”

Danny Beard, also had nothing but love for Allison Hammond, adding: “You can have the biggest stars in the world on the show but when you get someone that just loves the show, and gives off that love, and you can tell they enjoy being there, it just makes the episode extra special.”

Many of the Drag Race UK season four queens said their hearts were stolen by Joanna Lumley. “There was some judges on that show, for me, especially Joanna Lumley, who were just a real tick-box moment for me. I’ve admired her work for a very long time,” Copper Topp said.

Fellow contestant Le Fil added: “Joanna Lumley, I love her. She’s such a camp icon and she’s got this fabulous eyebrow when she looks and gives her smile. 

“But for me as a massive Spice Girls fan, I’m excited to see Mel B on the TV screens. I think she’s amazing and as a queer northerner growing up and having Mel B 20 minutes down the road from Leeds I was like, ‘yes!'”

If the queens’ comments are anything to go by, it is going to be a season to remember. 
Drag Race UK season four begins on 22 September at 9pm on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.
