BBC Three has confirmed that Rupel’s drag race was interrupted “halfway” through the UK filming season due to the Karpunu virus epidemic, but the channel hopes to finish filming “by the end of the year”.
Speaking on a panel at the Virtual Edinburgh TV Festival, BBC Three controller Fiona Campbell was asked if it was true that the show’s second season was affected by epidemics and lockdowns.
“Yes, it’s true, it was interrupted by filming in the middle, and it’s currently being reorganized, as we say,” he said.
However, he added that Rupel’s drag race was already planned to resume in the UK as soon as possible.
“I think the best I can say is optimistic that if we all stay as healthy and stable in the UK as we are now, we will get it done by the end of the year. But yes, it’s being reorganized as we talk. “
Alan Carr confirmed earlier this year that he was working on a second season, which is going to be bigger and better than the first.
“Michelle Vagez has doubled the number of applicants this year so I think it’s going to grow even more!” He told the press Radiotimes.com.
“I’m filming but I don’t know who. It’s so secret. They’ve already filmed the first one. I can’t wait. I’m going to be like that kid in that Alton Tower ad,” One more sleep! “
Prior to the interview, he reflected on how he had influenced public opinion on the gay community.
“I was talking to Graham Norton and I was, ‘I remember the stick we liked – you’re gay …’ and I thought, ‘Wait until you’re here’, we’ve got Arnold Schwarzenegger and Chuck I’m like Norris
“We were getting all this stick about being camped, and now it’s like, ‘Hey girl!’ So it’s nice not to be camped in the room and not really butch! I can’t believe how far it has gone. “
