Elizabeth Hurley will be a celebrity guest on 'RuPaul's Drag Race UK'.
The 55-year-old actress will be one of the big-name guests who will appear in series two of the show.
The Hollywood star said: "My whole family is obsessed with the show and would have disowned me if I hadn’t said yes to being a judge. I am in awe of Ru Paul and couldn’t take my eyes off him."
The regular panel features RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton, and Alan Carr, and Liz relished her time on the show.
She shared: "I like the ladies to look magnificent and make me laugh, so anyone who achieved that got my vote."
The series will also include guest appearances from the likes of Sheridan Smith, Lorraine Kelly, MNEK and Jourdan Dunn.
Sheridan, 39, will join the panel for the music and dance week.
The actress is a huge fan of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' and she loved the experience.
The actress said: "That was amazing! I am such a superfan! I’m shaking! Ru was sat next to me! And Michelle Visage! And Alan Carr! It’s been amazing. The queens are fabulous. I had the best day. I felt like I’d won a competition."
The BBC has confirmed that the new series will start on January 14.
Meanwhile, a RuPaul's Drag Race UK' star has tested positive for coronavirus.
The aspiring drag queen has been forced to quit the second series of the show after testing positive during a break from filming last month.
A source on the BBC show said: “One of the best queens had to leave the competition because of Covid. They were a huge part of the show and it caused uproar – RuPaul was gutted."
