Here’s your first look at RuPaul’s Drag Race UK

Glimpse inside the Werk Room

Published

on

It feels as though the UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race has been promoted for AEONS; and with the premiere date finally nearing – plus Ru’s recent confirmation of US Season 12 and All-Stars 5 – it looks like we’re really not getting a moment to goddamn BREATHE.

Still, the fact that the UK version is a bit of an unknown entity is interesting, and this first look trailer – which shows only the Werk Room – indicates that we’re gearing up for a proper launch now.

The release date on iPlayer is, apparently, October.

Nicole Scherzinger interviewed by Kelly Clarkson? Some people wait a lifetime for etc etc

FAVES COLLIDING

Published

on

This is a week old now but HELL I’ve just encountered Nicole Scherzinger appearing on The Kelly Clarkson Show last week and yes, fave+fave=excellent.

With Scherzy mainly talking about being a judge on three(!) separate continents at the moment thanks to The Masked Singer (US), The X Factor: Celebrity (UK) and Australia’s Got Talent (…Australia), this cute chat digs up nothing particularly revelatory, but it is Really Fun.

The Wet hitmaker talks about how her approach to judging has changed over the years, saying: “In the beginning, I used to be so precious, I could never say no. Now, after all these years, cut to… I’m just like, ‘next, don’t waste my time!'”

Kelly, conversely, cried a lot when she had to turn people away on her first season of The Voice US.

People are campaigning to save Britain’s Got More Talent

It’s apparently been scrapped

Published

on

Yes, of all television shows on this planet, people are currently fighting to save Britain’s Got More Talent – the ITV2 spin-off for Britain’s Got Talent – from its heavily-rumoured cancellation.

The Stephen Mulhern-fronted programme has been going for 12 years but is apparently being dumped so that the ~bonus content~ around BGT can be more heavily focussed online.

Makes sense, given newer viewing habits, although can ITV2 really find a better-rated alternative for the post-BGT, Saturday night timeslot?

Anyway, #SaveBGMT is trending today, which is unlikely to make any difference but there is something to be said about bosses targeting social media for its future BGT output and social media replying “no, actually, leave things as they are”.

A spokesperson is quoted as telling The Sun: “As our 18-34 audience share continues to grow and viewing habits are changing, naturally we are listening to viewers and focusing more on digital platforms.”

It is wild that BGT has managed to stay relatively drama-free (compared to similar shows, at least) and held its steady-ish ratings for so long. It’s back for its 14th season in 2020.

Nadine in the jungle! NADINE IN THE JUNGLE!

The memes will be BOUNTIFUL

Published

on

Nadine Coyle is apparently geared-up to appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! this year.

Think of the memes! THINK OF THE MEMES!!!!

The Girl Aloud has been rumoured for various reality shows in the past but this one feels like it could be legit: Nadine’s back in the habit of low-key putting out music, and this would A) keep the spotlight on her, and B) presumably also help her to find said bops.

A source told The Sun (where the story originates) that it’s ~hoped~ that she’ll spend some time bitching about how much she despises Cheryl, which… seems unlikely! But hey, at least if it puts Cheryl back in the news then it’ll be a fab time for her to release a new single too? Let You was five months ago now, sis!

God I really hope this rumour is true, you guys.
