Andrew Garfield and Michaela Coel have joined RuPaul’s Drag Race UK
The Amazing Spider-Man star and the Chewing Gum actress have both been confirmed as guest judges for the upcoming first series of the BBC Three show, and Andrew, 35, has praised the programme’s “creativity”.
He said: “The creativity is always totally outside the box and it’s one of the many reasons I watch and love this show – when someone does something I wouldn’t have thought of myself.”
Black Mirror actress Coel added that she “loves” that the show gets rid of all “societal norms and restraints”.
She said: “I love that you have to dare, you have to dare and you have to drop all of your societal norms and restraints that you’ve been taught and you have to dare to embody something higher.”
The pair joins previously announced judges, Spice Girl Geri Horner, Little Mix member Jade Thirlwall and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, while comedian Alan Carr and chat show host Graham Norton will both make regular appearances as rotating judges
Black Magic singer Jade – who is a huge fan of the US version of the show – previously admitted that she wishes that she could have been a queen herself.
She added: “I love absolutely everything about drag. I love that it’s art. I love how fabulous it is, how fun it is, I love that you can transform your body into a fantastic beautiful woman… the whole thing! I just wish in my next life I can be a drag queen.”
The star once hosted a drag queen-themed birthday party, and she starred alongside Drag Race queens Alaska, Courtney Act and Will.i.am in Little Mix‘s Power video two years ago.
