Dame Joanna Lumley will reportedly be an extra special guest judge on the new series of RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

Dame Joanna Lumley will reportedly be an extra special guest judge on the new series of RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

The comedy legend, 76, is thought to be a big fan of the show and made her appearance earlier this year, when the fourth series was filmed in Manchester.

"Execs have been trying to get Joanna on the show for years. The pandemic caused a delay, but finally it has worked out," a source told the Daily Star.

"Everyone is so excited that they managed to make it happen. Joanna is easily one of the best signings in the show's history.

"She's a bona fide legend and national treasure."

Other guests on the new series, which will air on BBC Three this autumn, include Mel B, Alison Hammond, Tess Daly and AJ Odudu.
