Contestants could potentially feature from the UK, US, Canada, Thailand, Australia, Spain and Holland.
However, a rumoured cast has been leaked for several months.
Who will compete in RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK Versus the World?
While nothing has been confirmed there has of course been much speculation about the cast.
The stakes will be high in this international competition and if this cast is anything to go by, it will be epic.
