BBC Three's Controller, Fiona Campbell said “I’m delighted that BBC Three will be the home for series two of Drag Race UK. Every single queen for series one has brought something different to the table and I’ve loved watching and getting to know them. The show is a huge hit for us and we’re very much looking forward to unleashing another series for our audience to tuck into!"

Whilst Kate Phillips, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning added "The response to the current UK series has been nothing short of dragulous; our viewers have really taken the show and the amazing queens to their hearts. So I’m delighted that Ru and the gang are going to shantay stay.  Let the search for the next group of queens begin!”
