Lulu, Nicola Coughlan and Russell Tovey are confirmed as the final three guest judges on the new series of RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

Three more celebrity guest judges have been confirmed for the new series of RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

Legendary singer Lulu, Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlan and actor Russell Tovey will each take a turn sitting alongside the regular judging panel - RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Alan Carr and Graham Norton.

The trio complete the lineup of guest judges on the new series, joining Matt Lucas, Oti Mabuse, Alesha Dixon, Kathy Burke, Emma Bunton and Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

"I have been a Drag Race megafan for the past ten years," said Coughlan. "It's one of my favourite shows in the entire world. I'm obsessed with it and I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of it so when I found out that Drag Race was coming to the UK in the first place, I was like 'Well my main goal in life is now to be a guest judge!' so I was relentless about it!

"I used to go to see all the queens when I had no money working as a waitress and I'd save up all of my money to see Shangela in The Black Cap in Camden so I felt very qualified. It was one of the best days of my life, I can't lie!"

Other special guests on the new series include Nadine Coyle and Judi Love - both guests on Snatch Game - as well as Charity Shop Sue, Jay Revell, Steps and Elton John.

The new series of Drag Race UK starts on BBC Three on Thursday, September 23.
