Graham Norton was on RuPaul's Drag Race last night and America fell in LOVE

The ‘best guest judge ever’, apparently. Yasss Graham! (No spoilers, don’t worry.)

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE was given a little Irish flavour last night in the form of Cork’s own Graham Norton.

If you’re unfamiliar with RuPaul’s Drag Race, it’s a reality competition documenting legendary drag queen RuPaul’s search for America’s next ‘drag superstar’.

It’s currently on its tenth season, and it is great telly, if we do say so ourselves.

Graham is fairly well known in the States as his show airs on BBC America – he and RuPaul have been buddies since Ru was a guest on The Graham Norton Effect in 2004.

Ru returned the favour by making him a judge on last night’s episode, and people were excited:

In the episode, the queens were given a Dragon’s Den-style task of creating and advertising a product that represents their ‘brand’.

Without spoiling anything, there were some unmitigated disasters, and Graham did not go easy on them:

That beige/nude underwear… It was a bit, sort of, granny on her honeymoon. It looked like it needed a good boil wash.

Viewers quickly proclaimed him the best guest judge ever – he even impressed the superfans on Reddit with his knowledge of the show and excellent critiques.

We agree. Ru, if you’re listening – Graham Norton for permanent judge. Just do it.
