The first challenge for All Stars 4 is a salute to LGBTQ troops for an All Star-Spangled Variety Show.

It follows a similar format to the acclaimed spin-off’s two previous seasons, which saw contestants showcase their skills in a drag talent show.

The premiere will air 14 December, one week after a very special instalment titled Drag Race Holi-Slay Spectacular, which will bring together eight of the show’s favourite queens.

All Stars 4 will see the return of ten legendary queens: Manila Luzon, Latrice Royale, Gia Gunn, Jasmine Masters, Naomi Smalls, Trinity Taylor, Valentina, Farrah Moan, Monique Heart and Monét X Change.

In the UK, it will straight after on Comedy Central at 1.30am, and will then be available on all catch-up streaming services.

Yesterday, a UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race was finally confirmed after years of speculation.

Mama Ru – with her right hand woman Michelle Visage, who is best known for her contribution to The Bodyguard soundtrack – will hunt for Britain’s Next Drag Superstar next year on BBC Three.

“I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens,” RuPaul said.

“And before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a ‘Royal-Mother-To-Be’ runway challenge.”

An insider told The Sun: “This is a massive coup for the Beeb as lots of other UK channels wanted this show.

“It will follow the exact same format as the American version with British twists and some famous guests.

“It’s really exciting for everyone involved and is expected to draw a lot of new fans to the franchise.”

This is the first time a series of Drag Race will have been created outside of the US with RuPaul as the host.

If you think you have the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to be crowned UK’s first drag superstar, apply here. Applications close 11 Jan 2019.
