Celebrity Lingo viewers all have the same complaint about 'missing' part as RuPaul hosts spin-off | The Sun

Celebrity Lingo viewers all had the same complaint as they tuned into the first episode of the star-studded spin-off, hosted by RuPaul.

The prime-time celebrity version of the show is fronted by the Drag Race legend, rather than Adil Ray, who hosts the popular daytime original.

And long-time fans of the format were not happy that their regular presenter had been replaced by the Hollywood superstar.

The first episode saw Ru welcome three celeb pairings to take part in the word game.

The celebs were Joel Dommett and wife Hannah Cooper, Corrie stars Andy Whyment and Alan Halsall and GMB presenters Andi Peters and Laura Tobin.

Twitter was soon flooded with complaints from viewers who were missing Adil.

"Why isn't @adilray hosting #celebritylingo?" asked one.

A second chipped in: "I cannot watch this without feeling sympathy for Adil Ray."

A third added: "What could make #lingo so much better…some wannabes and rupaul said no one ever!!"

And a fourth weighed in: "@ITV nooo love @RuPaul but where is @adilray" followed by a crying emoji.

Others complained that Ru struggled to get to grips with the gig.

"RuPaul has no idea who any of these people are" one commented.

"Ru is already as awful as I thought they'd be," said another. "Stunt casting rarely works."

Not everyone was unimpressed, however.

"RuPaul hosting a gameshow on Sunday evening ITV while in the presence of Tyrone from Corrie is literally everything" one pleased viewer tweeted.

"Omg I love RuPaul" seconded another.

"Ru talking to Kirk from Corrie is surreal, I love it," said a third.

Lingo, much like the popular game Wordle, sees contestants trying to solve mystery five-letter words.

The series has proved a hit in daytime and has run for 90 episodes since it was revived in 2021.

RuPaul is such a fan of the format, he hosts a US version, as well as the UK spin-off, which he filmed in Manchester.

Of course, Ru is best known for fronting RuPaul's Drag Race, a worldwide phenomenon, which also has a homegrown version which the drag superstar hosts.
