Speaking about her experience on the show, Jane said: "Sitting alongside Ru was a dream, each and every one of the queens were spectacular and fabulous and showcased talent from right across the globe. May the best drag queen win!"

Joining Jane will be former popstar Sinitta, which must mean we're getting a 'So Macho' lipsync.

Sinitta said: "I'm so excited to be a part of Snatch Game on Drag Race, where drag has evolved and become so much more than female impersonation but creative exploration and fabulous madness!"

Drag Race UK vs the World series 2 sees four memorable UK queens from seasons past competing against contestants from around the globe to be crowned Queen Of The World.

Last time around the title was won by Belfast-born queen Blu Hydrangea.

This time competing for the UK will be Drag Race UK's first ever eliminated queen, Gothy Kendoll, series 2's Tia Kofi, Choriza May from series 3, and series 4's joint third-placer Jonbers Blonde.

Drag Race US will be represented by Mayhem Miller (season 10, All Stars 5) and Scarlet Envy (season 11, All Stars 6), while Hannah Conda from Drag Race Down Under season 2 represents Australia.
