And yeah, fair enough.

"We have some huge news to announce!" they said. "The queen of Newcastle herself, CherylOfficial, will be on #DragRaceUK as a guest judge."

Also appearing on the upcoming series of the show will be Andrew Garfield, Geri Horner, Jade Thirlwall, Maisie Williams and Michaela Coel.

An official air date for the show has yet to be confirmed by BBC Three, but it's expected to drop some time this Autumn.

Can't wait.
