A message on the Twitter account for the show announced that the trio will appear on the upcoming second season.

The announcement stated: "The Christmas presents aren't stopping. Excited to announce that @Dawn_French, @MayaJama and @JessieWare will all be judges on the next series of #DragRaceUK."

Ware tweeted: "Ring a ding ding!!!! Can't wait, Drag Race UK,” while Jama said: "The way I love this show."

Dawn previously revealed she was asked to be a full-time judge on the programme but settled on a guest role due to other commitments.

She said: "They did originally ask me to be a full-time judge, but I couldn't – I don't live in London. But I am going to be a guest judge."

French, Jama and Ware will join Elizabeth Hurley, Lorraine Kelly, Sheridan Smith, MNEK and Jourdan Dunn, who were previously confirmed to star.

Hurley has said: "My whole family is obsessed with the show and would have disowned me if I hadn't said yes to being a judge. I am in awe of RuPaul and couldn't take my eyes off him."
