RuPaul will reportedly host the upcoming Australian and New Zealand version of RuPaul's Drag Race.

The upcoming Australian and New Zealand version of RuPaul's Drag Race will reportedly have RuPaul as the host.

Local versions of the long-running drag contest have been launching around the world over the last few years, although to date RuPaul has only taken on the full hosting role on the UK version.

The Aussie series will begin filming later this month - albeit in New Zealand rather than Australia due to coronavirus restrictions - and according to ex press, RuPaul is now in NZ to prepare for the show.

As we previously reported, RuPaul's sidekick Michelle Visage is also in New Zealand and the pair are now completing a mandatory quarantine period before filming can start.

The show, which has the working title RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under, will reportedly feature 10 Aussie queens and two Kiwi queens and is being lined up for broadcast later this year.
