RuPaul to host British version of Drag Race?

rupJonathan Ross is a long time fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race and for the last few years has desperately been trying to get a UK version of the show up and running. He has approached UK drag queen sensation Jodie Harsh as a possible panelist but this week saw the show’s longevity get an extra boost when RuPaul had offered to host the UK version of his hugely popular drag contest.

Speaking on their new podcast, Ru said he and Michelle Visage were wondering whether Ross was going to hire them for the UK version of the show.

RuPaul commented that ‘I think it makes sense if they got an English host with English humor and English drag slang and all that stuff to be the host.’

What do you think? Would you like to see a RuPaul fronted UK Drag Race? Who would you have instead? Would it work over here or is an American only success? Share your thoughts below.

Kimberley Walsh teams up with Fame Academy’s Alistair Griffin for new song

kimberleyFormer Fame Academy season two runner up Alistair Griffin has teamed up with fellow Yorkshire resident and Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh for a new collaborative song ‘The Road’.

Griffin has focussed on songwriting since his stint on the BBC reality show in 2003 and is probably best known for his top ten hit ‘Bring It On’ which he released immediately after the show. Another of his songs ‘Just Drive’ garnered recent chart success following its use in BBC F1 coverage.

Walsh gained recognition on ITV’s Popstars the Rivals which pitted boys against girls in an attempt to form two new groups as they fought it out for the Christmas Number 1 in 2002. The result saw Girls Aloud nab the honour with their ‘Sound of the Underground’ debut over One True Voice’s ‘Sacred Trust’. Since then Girls Aloud have gone on to celebrate a staggering ten years of hits including ‘Love Machine’, ‘Biology’, ‘Long Hot Summer’ and ‘Sexy No No No!’
