Drag Race UK gave us drama, emotion, poetry, and the super-group we’ve all been waiting for, the Frock Destroyers.

After the heady heights of the Snatch Game, it seemed inevitable that this week’s Drag Race UK would strike a somewhat quieter tone. How wrong we were.

Returning to the werk room, the queens took on another legendary challenge as RuPaul declared the library officially open.

Once again, the queens proved why British drag is the one to beat.

Having proven their literacy skills, the queens were asked to shoot their lyrical loads in the recording booth for a girl-group themed singing challenge.

As the winner of the mini challenge, Crystal chose The Vivienne and Cheryl Hole to be her Filth Harmony bandmates, leaving Divina De Campo, Baga Chipz Blu Hydrangea to form the Frock Destroyers.

Baga kicked things off with an touching ode to her sexuality.

After showing us her true colours in the Snatch Game, Blu Hydrangea kept the filth coming.

Back in the werk room, Divina got emotional as she recalled growing up under Section 28.

On the main stage, Filth Harmony struggled as The Vivienne forgot the words to her own verse.

While the Frock Destroyers gave us a show to remember.

Guest Judge Jade Thirwall put on her own special performance.

But ultimately the winners of the week were Divina, Baga and Blu, making herstory with Drag Race‘s first-ever triple crowning.

With Cheryl given a pass, The Vivienne and Crystal were left to lip-sync for their lives, with the Canadian queen becoming the fifth to sashay away.

All in all, it was a vintage week for Drag Race UK…

…and next week’s episode looks set to be every bit as iconic. Until then!

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK continues Thursdays on BBC iPlayer.
