Earlier this year, we reported that our Cheryl was set to be the first guest judge on Drag Race UK. And only now has BBC3 confirmed to be true!

The British adaptation of the Emmy-winning reality series will have a panel comprised of Ru Paul himself, Michelle Visage, Paul O’Grady and then Alan Carr and Graham Norton on rotation. But Cheryl Cole will bring some Northern tongue as a guest judge.

“She jumped at the chance and recently visited the set to film as a guest judge,” a source told The Sun.

“Cheryl gave her comments on contestants who performed a lip-sync to her 2012 No1 single ‘Call My Name’. Viewers will love it.”

Well, you never how reliable a source is for a tabloid, but let’s take it as gospel.

Love a bit of Cheryl, and she’s used to being on a talent panel so we give this decision a TOOT.
