RuPaul will quiz the queens in the Snatch Game. (BBC)
Drag Race UK is about to unleash the Snatch Game onto the BBC and the internet is beside itself with excitement.
After a sewing challenge which shook up the rankings and sent a fan favourite home, the trailer for next week’s Drag Race UK Ru-vealed that the wait for Snatch Game is almost over.
A mainstay of the American series since its second season, Snatch Game is the challenge which sorts the wheat from the chaff and has delivered some of the show’s most iconic moments.
Naturally, the announcement caused quite the scandal among fans.

With Michelle Visage teasing “the best Snatch Game character in the history of the show”, speculation as to who the queens will impersonate went into overdrive.

According to Cheryl Hole, none of us are ready for what’s to come, and frankly, who knows if we ever will be?
