The Spice Girls singer, the Little Mix star, and the 'Britain's Got Talent' judge have signed up as guest panellists for the third season, alongside previously announced Oti Mabuse, Matt Lucas and Kathy Burke.

The six stars will be part of the judging panel, which consists of RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr.

Emma - who joked her drag name would be Mrs Bae Bespice - said: "Being on the set of 'Drag Race' is full of glamour, talent and creativity.

"I love how everyone is so individual."

The 45-year-old star - who is nicknamed Baby Spice - has previously appeared on 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' in the US, and she was keen to appear on the UK version.

She said: "It's not my first time as 'I did All Stars in the USA'.

"As soon as you've been around the drag race team you wanna be a part of it as much as you can."

Leigh-Anne "can't wait" for viewers to see the drag queens on the forthcoming series, which will return to BBC iPlayer from September 23.

She said: "I love the creativity and the drama!

"And the outfits always amaze me! I can’t wait for the world to see the queens."

Alesha added: "What is there not to love about Drag Race UK?! The craziness… the costumes ... the sassiness ... the Lip Syncing!

"I love it all and I’m here for it."

Matt, Oti, and Kathy were confirmed for the show last month.

Oti said at the time: "I loved being on the set!

"It felt surreal - I've watched every episode since season one in the States, Canada, Down Under and I was excited to be on the UK one and meet the Queens and work with them."

Matt admitted it has been one of his dreams to appear on the show's panel.

He said: "It was on my bucket list to be on the show, but my years of wearing tights are behind me, so I was both relieved and delighted to be asked to be on the panel!

"I was hugely impressed by the brilliance and invention on the show, and it was one of the most entertaining days I've ever had.

"The more serious the situation, the sillier I tend to be. So I was very silly."

'Gimme Gimme Gimme' star Kathy, who joked her drag name would be Pam Demic, also enjoyed being a part of the panel.

She added: "I'm a big 'Drag Race' fan, so It was absolutely brilliant to meet RuPaul and Michelle Visage - and I loved the very-kind-to-old-ladies' lighting."

'RuPaul's Drag Race UK' returns to BBC iPlayer from September 23.
