The RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Queens Are Finally Here
The BBC has finally unveiled the cast of queens competing in RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
Ten queens will enter a brand new werk room for the first UK edition of the global phenomenon.
Hand-picked by Mamu Ru herself, the cast includes a West End performer, a Girls Aloud impersonator, and a queen whose drag is largely confined to her bedroom.
The queens competing are Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Crystal, Cheryl Hole, Divina De Campo, Gothy Kendoll, Sum Ting Wong, Scaredy Kat, The Vivienne and Vinegar Strokes.
RuPaul said: “Each of the UK queens is so unique, so courageous and so special. I can’t wait for the UK – and the world – to fall in love with them the same way I did.”
The queens will make their first official appearance at Manchester Pride on Saturday, August 24. But until then, here’s the tea on an all ten.
Baga Chipz is a “pub queen, a tart with a heart, not one of these gorgeous beautiful Kate Moss lookalike drag queens”.
Hailing from Walthamstow, London, the 29-year-old says her greatest strengths are her comedy and wit.
“I might not have the best outfits or makeup, but put me on a stage and I will entertain the absolute s***e out of the room.”
