Drag Race has announced a new ‘international All Stars‘ with queens from both the UK and the US battling head-to-head.
The duo, who both appeared in the first season of Drag Race UK, will compete against queens from the US, Canada and Holland. A source told The Sun that fans of Drag Race “have been calling for queens from all different countries of the show to unite and finally, their wishes have been granted”.
The source said Baga and Blu are “fantastic representatives of the UK drag scene”. They added: “In addition to being glamorous and talented, they have an acerbic and filthy sense of humour and don’t mind poking fun of themselves.”
Baga Chipz won three challenges and finished in third place during her time on Drag Race UK. Since then, Baga appeared on Celebrity Masterchef before being eliminated from the competition on 8 July.

Blu Hydrangea placed fifth on the first series of Drag Race UK and was later voted as the season’s unofficial Miss Congeniality by fans. The Northern Irish drag queen is known outside of Drag Race for being part of a band called the Frock Destroyers alongside Baga Chipz and Divina de Campo.
She also hosts the new BBC series Strictly Frocked Up, a weekly web show where she and another drag queen review each episode of Strictly Come Dancing.
There has been no other word on which other drag queens will appear in the upcoming series.
The international RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars series is set to begin filming soon and will be separate from the upcoming Eurovision-inspired drag singing contest Queen of the Universe, which was announced last month.
Questions still remain about the new international All Stars series or Queen of the Universe, such as if the queens will perform in person or will have to pre-record performances due to ongoing travel restrictions because of COVID. However, World of Wonder, the makers of Drag Race, said the singing contest will launch on streaming service Paramount Plus alongside the forthcoming All Stars 6.
An air date for both Queen of the Universe and Drag Race All Stars 6 is still to come.
