Who won RuPaul’s Drag Race UK? Here are all the contestants, results and WINNER of the first series!
RuPaul’s Drag Race’s first ever UK season recently concluded its debut season BBC Three.
The premiere British series follows the same format as its American counterpart. Contestants will compete in individual or team challenges that test a specific drag queen skill before taking on the Maxi Challenge, the headline moment of each show.
There they may be required to perform, model in a photo shoot or prepare a runway look for a themed challenge before having to face the judges, with one contestant each week eliminated and asked to “Sashay Away”.
The first UK series will air over eight, hour-long episodes available at 8PM on Thursday nights.
