RuPaul's Drag Race season six winner Bianca Del Rio will return to host The Pit Stop for All Stars season eight.

The YouTube aftershow, which Bianca previously hosted for Drag Race season 15, will see the comedy queen and a special guest recap and review the latest episode of All Stars each week.

"Like a bad rash… I'm baaaack!" Bianca said in a statement to Variety. "The greatest thing about a new season of All Stars is I don't have to compete but get to judge all of them by hosting The Pit Stop."

Guests joining Bianca on The Pit Stop include other fan-favourite queens, such as Alaska (All Stars 2 winner), Kylie Sonique Love (All Stars 6 winner) and Peppermint (Drag Race season 9).

Newer Drag Race stars like Sugar and Spice (Drag Race season 15), Mistress Isabelle Brooks (Drag Race season 15) and Kornbread (Drag Race season 14) will also pull up a chair with Bianca.

All Stars 8 kicks off today (May 12), so fans can finally watch as Kandy Muse, Monica Beverly Hillz, Jimbo, Heidi N Closet and other iconic queens strut into the Werk Room to compete for a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.

Bianca, who will judge the parties alongside Harris, wrote on Instagram: "Roll up those sleeves and sharpen those nails, girls. Two teams of drag queens go head-to-head and serve up the most snatched dinner parties of all time!

"Stream Drag Me To Dinner May 31st @hulu #dragmetodinner."
