Since the reveal of the new contestants, Drag Race UK fans have been sharing their thoughts about the upcoming season.

“Drag Race UK season 4 theme is very classy and edgy,” one viewer tweeted. “The meet the queen interview giving some minimalist vogue youtube love it.”

“Absolutely creaming myself over this promo chrissttttt #DragRaceUK,” said another.

A third added: “​​This is a fierce line up!!! #DragRaceUK

“Plus this is the first time where I actually know (met/seen/follow) these people…

“I must say though, Danny Beard is a UK legend!”

A fourth stated: “Okay, this #DragRaceUK S4 promo may be the best regular season promo we’ve seen in a long time.”

Some questioned why Victoria Scone is not on the cast after injuring her knee and being forced to leave early last season.

One wrote: “Wait, no Victoria Scone?”

“Anyone know why Victoria Scone isn’t in series four when she had to withdraw due to injury in series three #DragRaceUK,” a second tweeted.

Others criticised the cast for being made up of 11 contestants from England and only one from Northern Ireland, with no representation for Scotland or Wales.

“Drag race UK? More like drag race England with the one token queen from one of the other 3 nations,” said one viewer. “Surely we could have 1 season where all 4 nations are represented?”

Another added: “Oh, what a surprise, #DragRaceUK demonstrating that it should be called Drag Race England (and Belfast).”
