RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will return for season six, and cast applications are now open – officially.

The Drag Race UK official social media channels revealed the news with a short video of Mama RuPaul herself, in which she called on “all UK queens” to submit their audition tapes.

Initial applications for season six of the drag reality series will close on 20 October.

Earlier this month, the BBC revealed that the first four seasons of Drag Race UK have accumulated a staggering 67 millions streams on iPlayer, becoming one of the BBC’s most successful series.

The queens battling it out to take the title this year are Banksie, Ms Naomi Carter, Alexis St. Pete, Tomara Thomas, DeDeLicious, Kate Butch, Vicki Vivacious, Ginger Johnson, Cara Melle, and Michael Marouli.
