RuPaul chats to Sarah Powell on heat radio.

Lots of big, high hair, lip-synching galore and sashay-ing is what has made RuPaul' show *Drag Race *a hit in the US. And now it's arrived on UK television screens.

You won't miss 'sashay away' or 'no T, no shade' from the vocabulary in America dialect since the show aired across the pond.

Now across on the other side of the Atlantic ocean, the show aired on Freeview tonight and heat radio DJ Sarah Powell got the low-down straight from the horses mouth.

Through an array of challenges the programme sees America' elite drag queens compete for a chance to win the America's Next Drag Superstar.

In each show, the Queens are scored on their make-up, style, dress-making skills, personality and performance, before the show finale sees the bottom two Queens enter the ultimate lip sync battle.

Its creator - and show host - RuPaul Charles hopes that by airing in Britain, it will only be a matter of time before the queens of London insist on their own UK version.

RuPaul's fellow Drag Race judge - Michelle Visage - appeared in the Big Brother house last year and sparked rumours about the possibility of a version being launched here in the UK.
