It’s been a year of mayhem, but in the midst of the madness came a blazing ball of joy in the long-awaited arrival of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK to BBC Three.
Ru was joined by bestie Michelle Visage, Alan Carr, Graham Norton and a bevy of guest stars – from Andrew Garfield to Jade ‘Little Mix’ Thirlwall – to judge the most characterful lineup of queens the show has seen in its 10 year history.
After eight weeks of filthy-fabulous language and fiercely-fought challenges, Scouse star The Vivienne sashayed her way to the crown and sceptre, becoming the show’s first homegrown winner.
We’ll have to wait till mid-2020 for season two, but if you or a pal are already missing the queens from your screens, don’t feel Blu – there’s plenty of merch from glam to Gothy (because different Strokes for different folks, right?).
Let’s be Crystal clear: the Viv has teamed up with Binge on a range of tops and trinkets – while the rest of the queens are flogging a Baga treats on the official merch store. We have our eyes on this Frock Destroyers sweatshirt, for starters.
Not to be outdone, fans have also been generating their own tributes on Etsy – here are our favourite bits for anyone with a Cheryl Hole in their heart right now. Don’t be a Scaredy-Kat. There’d be Sum Ting Wong if you didn’t indulge.
It was the stand-out catch-phrase of the season. Now it’s on a Christmas card.
Who wouldn’t want to wake up to Ru’s mantra every morning? Inspirational.
When you’re crossing a threshold as fabulous as this one, there’s one way to do it: strut for your lives.
The reading challenge is one of the stand-out highlights of any Drag Race season – and the British queens excelled at it. Made us feel quite patriotic.
If you want to wear the UK cast across your chest, you can start with this tee.
Lest we forget the queens of seasons past... the same Etsy maker has also memorialised Trixie Mattel, Sharon Needles and Adore Delano in crockery form.
If you’ve watched Trixie and Katya’s YouTube series you will know a thwoorp is the sound your fan makes when you open it to make a VERY important point.
