The queen's one of 10 getting ready to compete in the latest version of the competition.

The BBC series is set to air in October and comes off the back of the hugely successful American versions of the show.

At 20 years old, Scaredy Kat is the youngest queen ever to be chosen for the show, and sees that as an advantage!

Speaking to the BBC, Scaredy Kat explained it's a bit of a shock to be on the show:

"I really liked the show and thought it might be fun to be on it, but I didn’t think I’d get on it. When I got the call that I wasn’t expecting, I was in a lecture at uni and so my reaction had to be kind of gauged. I was in the hallway trying not to scream and cry at the same time out of happiness and fear."

RuPaul said:

“Each of the UK queens is so unique, so courageous and so special. I can't wait for the UK - and the world - to fall in love with them the same way I did.”

The pair will also get help with the judging process from celebrities including Graham Norton, Alan Carr, Geri Horner, Jade Thirlwall from Little Mix, Stacey Dooley and Lorraine Kelly.
