Jeopardy apologises over Drag Race mistakeBBC

Jeopardy!, the long-running US quiz show that's soon getting a new UK version, has issued an apology for an error involving RuPaul's Drag Race.

A clip for an upcoming syndicated episode was shared to the show's official Instagram page, with the audio pertaining to a question about the drag-themed reality competition. The video, however, showed a contestant being asked about Angela Lansbury fighting Nazis in Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

The show said sorry for the mix-up in a statement issued to TVLine, which read: "The clue was posted inadvertently by our social media team.

"The correct version was posted to Facebook, and the incorrect Instagram version was pulled down immediately. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused."

The error also didn't make it into the episode in question.

Ru will soon be back on our screens, as the fifth series of Drag Race UK will premiere in just a few days.

While highly anticipated, the series has attracted criticism for only featuring contestants from, or currently living in, England.

In an exclusive interview with Digital Spy, Michelle Visage was asked about the lack of Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish scenes.

"You ask them!" she said. "They have to audition. You can't pick from the sky.

"If they don't audition, or if they're not on the level they need to be quite yet but I do believe they'll all get there, that's the way the cookie crumbles.

"But we'd love to represent all of the UK. Regional drag is everywhere. It's all about the audition, but this series [is] gonna knock your socks off."

Drag Race UK series 5 begins September 28 on BBC Three and iPlayer.
