“If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else!”
One of the most joyfully entertaining and binge-worthy shows is back, with a twist!
RuPaul’s Drag Race is a bonafide phenomenon, with fans all over the world pretty much able to recite entire episodes from memory. It’s been so culturally impactful since it emerged on screens back in 2009, with RuPaul swiftly becoming one of the most likeable and charming celebrities in the business.
We’ve seen the reality show evolve into something more and more impressive with every contest for eleven seasons now, but when news of a UK edition surfaced, audiences lost their minds! Passion and admiration for the series in the UK couldn’t be clearer, and we’re thrilled that it’s finally made its way over here, especially when considering the judges!
Of course, RuPaul is head of the judges, but he’s joined by the likes of Michelle Visage, Alan Carr and Graham Norton too – colour us impressed. So, how can you watch it?
What channel is RuPaul’s Drag Race UK on?
Although technically not a channel anymore, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK can be accessed on BBC Three right here over on the BBC website.
So essentially, you can kick back and watch the icon hard at work on BBC iPlayer, and trust us, you won’t want to miss the glorious rebirth of this hit reality show.
You can catch up with the episodes right now; the drag queens meeting for the first time is definitely one for the books. So far we’ve seen photoshoot challenges and other highlights, with many already determining their favourites early on.
It’s easy to watch for those of you in the UK, but for RuPaul fans elsewhere, let’s talk about how to watch…
How to watch: Walking through the VPN Tool
Those outside of the UK can access BBC iPlayer.
All you need is a VPN tool to relocate your VPN to the UK. By doing so, you can create an account (using any random UK address details) and login to watch episodes at your convenience.
Step 1. Pick a VPN Tool
There are a wealth of VPN tools out there but we recommend the likes of Express VPN, VPN Hub, Panda, Cyber Ghost, Nord VPN, Pure VPN or Vypr VPN.
All of them will cost a little bit of dollar although some of the tools offer free 30-day trials.
Step 2. Download and Install
Simply sign up to your chosen VPN tool – usually via one, three, six or 12-month deals – and download the tool.
Step 3. Follow the Instructions
Each VPN tool comes with different guidelines.
However, they’re all relatively easy to follow but may vary depending on whether you have a MacBook or Windows software.
The key is remembering to select ‘UK’ when prompted to select where you would like your new VPN to be registered.
Step 4. Get watching
With the VPN correctly setup you should now be able to access any UK or worldwide website.
This means that you could set up an account for others too.

What about Australia?
The same method can be applied for those in Australia, as you too can download a VPN tool and access the BBC website to catch up with episodes.
Alternatively, we’re sure there are online streaming platforms that upload episodes – such as TVmuse.cc – but they are illegal and we cannot promote them…
We hope you enjoy the series!
