Who won RuPaul’s Drag Race UK? The winner of the first ever series was crowned in tonight’s results – SPOILER!
After eight weeks, Drag Race UK’s first series named its inaugural winner this evening (November 21).
Following a final lip sync battle to Wham’s I’m Your Man, it was The Vivienne who won RuPaul’s Drag Race UK 2019.
The Vivienne beat Divina De Campo who was runner up, while Baga Chipz finished in third place.
The prize for the winner was a crown and sceptre, plus an all expenses paid trip to Hollywood to create their own digital series with the producers of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Alongside RuPaul the judging panel for the final was made up of Alan Carr, Graham Norton and Michelle Visage.
The final also welcomed back the rest of this year’s Queens: Blu Hydrangea, Crystal, Cheryl Hole,, Gothy Kendoll, Sum Ting Wong, Scaredy Kat and Vinegar Strokes.
RuPaul’s Drag Race’s first ever UK season aired on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.
The premiere British series followed the same format as its American counterpart. Contestants competed in individual or team challenges that tested 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”.
Meanwhile, a second series of Drag Race UK has already been confirmed to air on BBC Three next year.
Series one has been a runaway success for BBC Three with 6.5 million total requests on iPlayer over the first four episodes alone.
RuPaul said: “I want to thank the BBC and all our fans for their overwhelming support of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
“This season’s queens proved that Britain’s Got Charisma Uniqueness Nerve and Talent and I want to see more! Here’s to another season of love, laughter and light!”
You can watch the entire first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK online now via BBC iPlayer.
Series 2 will air in 2020.
