“There is something quite hot about a daddy vibe!” she admitted.

“It doesn't matter what age you are, as long as it's legal and you're both of the right age, I think it's fine.”

Fellow ‘drag-ony’ queen Baga Chipz agreed - and she should know, having had experience of dating much older men before.

“When I was 19, I went with like a 78-year-old,” she revealed. “I've been with people that are 50 years older than me.”

“My mum is 15 years younger than my dad. I know so many relationships where it's like 20 years.”

Blu Hydrangea, who is 24, said that a connection is all that matters, especially as maturity levels aren’t dependant on when you were born.

“There's people that are younger that age differently - they've been put in situations that have made them mature quickly,” she said.

She continued: “You could meet someone who's 18 that's more mature than someone my age. I have like the mindset of a child! Totally, absolutely - I play with toys and stuff. If you have that connection with someone, I mean just pursue it!”

Chipz agreed saying she was personally more attracted to older people as she has “an older head” on her shoulders and she cited her favourite actress Sarah Paulson as a good role model when it comes to age gap relationships.

“She’s married to a really well-known older actress,” said Chipz. “She's in her seventies, eighties and Sarah's early forties. We're talking half the person's age, but they look so happy together.”
