Drag Race UK might be over, but you haven’t seen the last of The Vivienne and Baga Chipz just yet.

The two queens will be resurrecting their Snatch Game characters, Donald Trump and Margaret Thatcher, for a new web series on WoW Presents+

Morning T&T will land on the streaming service in December, and looks set to spoof Good Morning Britain-style breakfast TV with a draggy twist.

Referencing Trump’s latest Twitter rant, a teaser for the series promises to serve “all tea, no quid pro quo.”

WoW Presents+ – which streams Drag Race UK in the US and overseas – also gave fans a teaser for a second spin-off, which will follow the UK’s First Drag Race superstar as she heads over to the US.

Warning, spoilers for the final – obviously – follow.

The Vivienne Takes Hollywood will arrive on the service in 2020, and will follow the winner on an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles. PinkNews has contacted WoW Presents+ and the BBC to find out how UK fans will be able to watch both shows.

The Scouse queen was handed the series – and a glittering crown and sceptre – after a tense final episode in which the top three tackled an all-singing, all-dancing maxi challenge.

The Vivienne, Baga and Divina each wrote their own verses for a performance of RuPaul’s ‘To The Moon’, and were taught a ballroom-inspired routine by Strictly pro AJ Pritchard and his brother, dancer and Love Island star and Curtis Pritchard.

The queens also sat down with RuPaul and Michelle to record an episode of their podcast, What’s The Tee.

Baga Chipz addresses relationship with mum.

Baga addressed her relationship with her mother after RuPaul said there seemed to be “unfinished business” between the two during last week’s makeover challenge.

“I’ve probably spoken to my mum like seven times in 10 years,” Baga revealed, explaining that she was raised by her grandmother.

“I’m not saying she’s a bad mum or anything because she’s not,” she said. “I’m not playing the victim because my nan spoiled me rotten.”

Divina clears up The Vivienne drama.

Divina spoke about second guessing herself throughout the competition.

“I try to be perfect,” she explained. “I’m so hard on myself to be the funniest, the highest kick, the best vocal, and quite often that just sets you up for a fall.”

Clearing up the drama between her and The Vivienne, she added: “It became a weird fixation because I respect her so much and I love her.

The Vivienne wants to support LGBT+ people struggling with addiction.

When The Vivienne took her turn in the hot seat, she revisited the topic of her drug addiction.

“It was breakfast, dinner and tea,” she said. “I had to stop, doctors were telling me I was going to be dead but he time I was 30.

“I’d love to help people in my position, drag and the gay scene is riddled with drug abuse and I don’t think there’s enough support out there.”

After a final performance and a reunion with the eliminated queens, RuPaul declared that The Vivienne and Divina would lip-sync for the crown, with Baga coming in third place.

And in the end, it was The Vivienne who acceded to the throne. Long may she reign.
