Less than a week after The Vivienne was crowned the UK’s first drag superstar, she and all the queens from Season 1 of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK embarked on a UK tour that carried them across six cities, from Newcastle to London, Birmingham to Manchester. Go onstage, backstage and behind the scenes as our cameras capture the good, the bad, the sickness and the madness! Here comes the drama, mama!
Some are on time, some are not. Some can dance. Some cannot. Stateside Drag Race star, Alyssa Edwards, who promises to bring a seasoned and steady hand to the stage, arrives to find our gaggle of UK queens scrambling to get their collective act together in time for curtain up, which is only hours...
After only three days of rehearsals, the UK queens – along with Drag Race legend, Alyssa Edwards – raise the curtain on the sold out opening night of the first-ever UK Drag Race tour. But a microphone malfunction threatens to silence the show before it even starts!
It’s a hometown show for a number of the queens as they bring their tour to the capital city. For the first time, Crystal is given the go-ahead to perform a risky aerial routine high above the London stage. No safety rope. No net. No second chances.
The queens hit a local drag show on their first night off from the tour. Bear-magnet, Vinegar, finds some action at the club while others cut out early, including Divina, whose worsening flu continues to plague the Season 1 runner-up.
Cold and flu season has the queens struggling to make it through the tour. First Divina, then Blu. Now Sum Ting, who’s been battling a cough since the start, has lost her voice. With no backing tracks available, will she be able to pull off her solo?
We think we’ve seen the future of drag. And her name is Kyle. It’s an all-ages show in Glasgow and Alyssa Edwards is moved, while Crystal's death-defying act causes a medical emergency for a member of the audience.
It’s the final night of the tour. And it's Christmastime! Secret Santa is coming to town and it looks like she’s bearing gifts for queens that have been more naughty than nice. No Silent Night here. These girls are going out with a bang!
