The second season RuPaul’s Drag Race UK line-up has been revealed… and it looks like the drag queens will face some tough competition as they battle to become the UK’s Next Drag Superstar.

Last year, The Vivienne was crowned the UK’s First Drag Superstar, beating runner-up Divina de Campo and Baga Chipz to walk away with the coveted prize.

While the casting for season two was completed in November 2019, filming for the series was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fortunately, the show has been given the green light, with its premiere taking place in mid-January.

And from what the line-up looks like, it’s going to be a hell of a show. Here they are!

The first competitor announced for season two is Tayce, who is from Newport South Wales and is ‘here to rock your socks’.

“You might need subtitles for this world. If you can’t understand me, it’s your ruin. What can I do? What can I say? said the drag queen.

Joe Black

Next up is Joe Black, bringing goth-glam and dazzling eye shadows from Brighton.

“I think I’m bringing all the eye shadow and goofy eyebrows from the traditional seaside pickup,” the performer said.

With perhaps one of the best puny names of the season, the fourth queen of the cast is Tia Kofi, from Essex who is now the “Queen of Clapham”.

“If you come to a Tia Kofi show, it could be anything,” she promised. “She sings live, she dances everything, she’s in the camp, she’s glamorous, she’s also messy. ”

Ellie Diamond

Hailing from Dundee, Scotland, Ellie Diamond is dressed new in a frilly pink ensemble for her first Drag Race UK appearance.

“I would love to be dressed like this 24/7, but I work in a drive-thru. It’s a little hard when I start a shift not knowing I’m a drag queen, because I go to the counter before and you know I’m a drag queen.

Sister sister

Ginny Lemon, from Worcester, might be dressed like a comedy queen, but they sure didn’t come to play.

“I bring you a down to earth, working class sense of humor. You’ll have a lot of energy, you’ll go crazy, you’ll have the unplanned, ”Ginny said.

Lawrence Chaney
