Racers, start your motori!

RuPaul's Drag Race has secured itself yet another spin-off, with Drag Race Italia now officially on its way. Racers, accendi i motori!

Following in the footsteps of the likes of Drag Race España, Drag Race Philippines, and of course Drag Race UK, Drag Race Italia is gearing up to showcase the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of some of Italy's best drag stars.

Drag Race Italia was first confirmed back in July, and now two months on, the upcoming spin-off has announced its host: Priscilla.

Neapolitan drag entertainer Priscilla, also known as Mariano Gallo, will take RuPaul's spot at the head of the panel, and will be supported by Italian actor Chiara Francini and reality star Tommaso Zorzi, who won the country's version of Big Brother (via PinkNews).

Known for her performances at the Mykonos beach club JackieO, Priscilla first shot to fame after appearing on the 2017 series of the Ellada Eheis Talento, Greece's take on Britain's Got Talent.
