History was made tonight (October 3rd, 2019), as RuPaul’s Drag Race UK aired for the first time on BBC Three, streaming through the BBC iPlayer! A total of 10 Queens have come together to compete for the title of the UK’s first Drag Race Superstar, as well as a trip to Hollywood to front their own digital online series, and they’re throwing everything at the wall in a bid to win. Already iconic, we’ve put together a list of our favourite quotes from episode one, as well as an early prediction on which of the contenders will be making it to Top Three!

Best quotes

  • Baga Chipz: I wonder who else is coming in; I’ve probably shagged half of ‘em.
  • Divina De Campo: I hope we get that Season 1 filter.
  • Divina De Campo: Just because I married an old rich man who’s gonna die soon, it doesn’t mean it was easy… But I am.
  • Sum Ting Wong (to Baga Chipz): I’ve never seen EastEnders look so glam.

  • Divina De Campo: Ee! Is that what I look like from down here? That’s no more carbonara for you, you fat b**tard!
  • Scaredy Kat: I think I’ve just s**t myself! RuPaul: You’re watching, the BBC.
  • RuPaul: Thames, Thames, Thames across the board!
  • Alan Carr: I wonder if she likes teabaggin’? Michelle Visage: What does that mean, Alan? Alan: I’ll show you, come to my dressing room.
  • Andrew Garfield: I can see her Prince Albert from here.
  • Alan Carr: When you turned around and had ‘lick me’, what a twist – that’s up there with Shawshank Redemption!
  • Michelle Visage: You’ve got prosthesis! The Vivienne: I haven’t, this is my face!

An early Top Three prediction

The Queens competing this season are so talented, it’s hard to put together a list of those that stand the best chance of going all the way. Despite that, here’s an early guess – which could be entirely incorrect!

  • Crystal
  • The Vivienne
  • Blu Hydrangea
