Vanity Milan has become the eighth queen to sashay away from this year's 'RuPaul’s Drag Race UK'.

The ninth episode saw Mama Ru pick her top three contestants, narrowing it down from the remaining four out of Ella Vaday, Kitty Scott-Claus, Krystal Versace, and Vanity, who was sent packing.

The semi-final saw the return of previously eliminated queens as part of the roast challenge, where the remaining contestants made jokes at their expense.

Kathy Burke joined the semi-final as RuPaul’s extra special celebrity guest judge, alongside Michelle Visage and Alan Carr.

While the 'Kevin & Perry Go Large' star and the other judges praised Vanity’s routine for being funny, they thought she needed more confidence.

Kathy said: “I loved it when you were being yourself. I loved the dirty rice! I just think you needed a bit more confidence.”

Ru added: “You had some funny things in there. You actually are funny. But being able to tap into that is what your next step is.”

Ella won the roast challenge along with the 'RuPeter badge', and Kitty was declared safe. That left Krystal and Vanity as the bottom two facing elimination.

They both had to battle for survival by performing a lip-sync to Dua Lipa’s song ‘Hallucinate’, but Vanity, who had survived the previous three lip-sync battles, was eliminated.

After the results were revealed, Ru told her: "Vanity Milan. As you go forth to conquer the world, leave no Estonia unturned. Now sashay away."

Vanity said: “Thank you so much for this opportunity. I couldn’t have asked for a better turnout. I made it to the top four. And you’ve got three amazing girls standing right behind me. But I have one thing to say… what’s on the menu? Dirty rice! Period.”

The grand finale of 'RuPaul’s Drag Race UK' will air on Thursday (25.11.21) from 7pm on BBC Three on BBC iPlayer.
