After a recent rumor arose about the United Kingdom version of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” arose earlier this week, British talk show host Jonathan Ross has spilled the real tee about the current status of the show.
Early last year, Jonathan purchased the rights to produce a UK version of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Since then, rumor after rumor has arisen about the status of the show. RuPaul even addressed the topic in May in an episode of his podcast, “What’s The Tee?”
The initial article that Attitude wrote on Monday speculated that “RuPaul’s Drag Race” UK would premiere later this year on Channel 5. Channel 5 was purchased in 2014 by Viacom, who also owns LogoTV (the broadcast channel that airs “RuPaul’s Drag Race” in the United States).
Following this speculation article, Attitude tweeted about the speculation and Jonathan responded:
@AttitudeMag hi my friends. DM me a number and I’ll call later with the T. X

Now, following that interaction on Twitter, Attitude has released a new article that has all the real tee on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” UK!

Jonathan told Attitude, much to the dismay of “Drag Race” fans around the world, “I’m a big big fan of the show. I’ve been watching it solidly for about three years now. Nothing’s happening right now, but that’s not for want of trying on my part. Hopefully something will happen! I’m knocking on doors and I’ve spoken to at least three channels already.”
