Drag Race UK found its first-ever winner, baby, and the internet naturally had feelings.

When historians try to pin point the exact moment that our nation changed irrevocably, they won’t look to Brexit or any general election, but to the night that RuPaul crowned The Vivienne the UK’s First Drag Race Superstar.

It was the shock result that divided a nation, with Divina De Campo fans lamenting that their queen had been the victim of a vicious robbery.

Very quickly, camp Divina through all five stages of grief: Denial




And finally… acceptance?

Meanwhile, team The Vivienne were elated that their queen had snatched the crown.

Ultimately the best take of the night was that both queens are deserved winners, who contributed to one of the best Drag Race seasons in memory.

Drag Race UK, we have just one thing to say: thank-you, and shantay, you stay.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
