Snapchat, spiders and cow s**t: The funniest tweets and memes from this week’s Drag Race UK
If you enjoy TV shows that feature Spanish drag queens gyrating on a Peloton and saying “I’m holding to that bike like it’s the thickest juiciest d**k and I’m gonna ride till I die”, then you probably enjoyed last night’s Drag Race UK.
The whole episode was a mish-mash of similarly weird scenes like Choriza’s star turn above, as the queens were tasked with performing a spin-class inspired dance routine, split into three teams.
Unfortunately, there aren’t that many trained dancers amongst this year’s contestants, and one of those dancers (Victoria) had a smashed up knee due to a mistimed death drop, so the performances were a bit – er – bad.
Actually, bad is a bit unfair. It was more… bizarre. Watching the final dance off was a bit like taking a job lot of mescaline before going to a beginner’s Zumba glass at a city centre PureGym.
The episode’s main talking point, though, was Krystal Versace’s decision to poke fun at Victoria Scone’s weight in a Supermarket Sweep-inspired challenge (again, it was a very strange episode). However, Victoria didn’t let Krystal get away with it and shared her very moving battle with body image issues and bulimia in response, humbling Krystal and generating huge praise online.
There were also a lot of funny reactions too, as usual, so let’s take a look at what all of the Drag Race UK meme queens had to say.

James made a hilarious point about the difference between US and UK queens
US drag queens: I’m Calexis Iman Dupree Davenport St James, from the illustrious House of St James! ✨👑
UK drag queens: I’m Electra Fence because once I touched an electric fence and electrocuted myself and landed in a pile of cow shit.#DragRaceUK

Just imagine life in the sunlit uplands under our glorious leader Choriza. It would be a utopia, and the capital city would be moved to Newcastle so she can be closer to her boyfriend’s d**k.
We’ll be back next week with another meme round up. You can also find all of our Drag Race UK coverage here.
