RuPaul is about to put a whole new spin on the drag race you know and love. Beginning tonight, April 24 on VH1, RuPaul's Secret Celebrity Drag Race is set to premiere the first of a four-part spin-off series of the popular competition show. However, this time, it won't be just anyone struttin' their stuff down the runway.

Celebrities from TV, music, and more will be making their drag debut, but you'll have to watch to see who shows up. Each episode will feature three celebries undergoing a drag transformation, mentored by some of your favorite Drag Race alumni. As of now, only Nico Tortorella from Lifetime's Younger has been announced as a guest celeb, with Bob The Drag Queen, Monét X Change and Trixie Mattel set to be mentors during the first episode.

RuPaul's Secret Celebrity Drag Race will air exclusively on VH1 in the U.S. If you have a cable subscription, you should have access, but if you've already cut the cord you'll need to look for a streaming platform that can get you acccess.
