Get ready, squirrel friends… things are about to get sickening.

The wait is almost over huuunties – we’re only seven days away until the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3, and these new photos courtesy of Entertainment Weekly have caused our hype levels to go through the motherf***ing roof.

All Stars 2’s highly-anticipated follow-up features fan favourites from across the seasons competing for a second chance (and in some cases, third) at becoming America’s Next Drag Superstar.

The line-up is – in order of season – Morgan McMichaels, Shangela, Milk, BenDeLaCreme, Trixie Mattel, Kennedy Davenport, Thorgy Thor, Chi Chi DeVayne and Aja, with a tenth mystery queen to be revealed (please be Ornacia).

We get our first look at the queens in the workroom (above), showing them settle in after they’ve made their grand entrance, and we have no doubt we’ll be blessed with some more witty catchphrases as they enter.

The second photo (below) shows the queens as they await Ru’s instructions for the first challenge… (!!!)

The last photo – and the most exciting of the bunch – shows the queens watch in awe as dancing-diva Chi Chi DeVayne catapults into the splits and slays the stage.

Thoughts? Are you gagging or are you GAGGING?

All Stars 3 will premiere on VH1 in the United States on 25 January, but if you’re from the UK – no need to worry. Comedy Central UK will launch the latest season at 10pm on 27 January, 48 hours after its US premiere.

Watch the queens serve their finest golden eleganza in the first trailer below…
