RuPaul's Drag Race UK 2021 spoilers - who left and results from season 2 (18 March)

Who who RuPaul’s Drag Race UK? Here are all the contestants and results from the second season.


RuPaul’s Drag Race’s second UK season has just finished airing on BBC Three.

An intense competition, the queens will slay their way through a weekly series of challenges designed to test their drag expertise. Their make-up skills, fashion sense, sewing abilities, comedy, singing, acting dancing skills, and of course lip sync skills will all be under close scrutiny.

In accordance with Drag Race mantra, all of the queens will be assessed on their Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent with the bottom two queens being asked to lip sync for their lives.

Series two is even bigger than the first, with twelve queens battling it out over ten weeks, with judges RuPaul Charles, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr returning to our screens, bringing some much overdue joy to the great British public. Each week Alan or Graham will join RuPaul and Michelle on a rotational basis, alongside an extra special celebrity guest judge.

Here’s a recap of season 2’s Queens and results…
