RuPaul’s Drag Race UK has reached its glorious conclusion, as the series two finale aired on BBC iPlayer.
We’re bereft of course, and we expect to spend the coming days re-watching our favourite clips while singing UK Hun? at the top of our lungs and reminding ourselves not to wear our H&M joggers in front of Mama Ru.
For now though, it’s time to celebrate our wonderful winner.
But which queens sashayed away as runners up, and who was named the UK’s Next Drag Race Superstar?

Despite Bimini Bon Boulash coming out on top of a RadioTimes.com poll, it was Glaswegian queen Lawrence Chaney who was named the UK’s Next Drag Race Superstar. Lawrence was thrilled, after a lip sync to Elton John’s I’m Still Standing secured the victory. “This is insane! It’s incredible. Scotland babes, I brought the crown home.”
RuPaul was delighted to name Lawrence the winner, saying, “Condragulations to our first Scottish queen, Laurence Chaney! Your charisma uniqueness nerve and talent have charmed the world. To our runners up, the incredible Bimini Bon Boulash and Tayce, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of you in the future. To all our amazing queens, thank you for sharing your much-needed love, light and laughter during these challenging times.”
Lawrence Chaney didn’t just win bragging rights tonight – being the UK’s Next Drag Race Superstar comes with an incredible prize. You don’t just get a crown and sceptre (awesome in their own right, obviously), but also an all-expenses paid trip to Hollywood to create a digital series with the producers of RuPaul’s Drag Race, as soon as travel restrictions allow.
