RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 5 cast
The BBC has now revealed the 10 queens that will be appearing on RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 5, all of whom will compete for a RuPeter badge each week and hoping to make it to the final where they can win the title of the UK’s Next Drag Race Superstar.
Without further ado, let's meet the queens of season 5.
Kate Butch is a 26-year-old drag queen from Derbyshire, who joked that she is "the face, the body, the fashion and the liar" of the season.
She works as a stand-up comedian, live singer, hostess, compere, and podcast host, and describes her drag as a Hollywood starlet with a migraine.
DeDeLicious is a 20-year-old drag queen from Kent who has a close connection with season 2 winner Krystal Versace, as the pair have known each other since they were 11 and at school together.
While she jokes about being a young queen, DeDeLicious said that she's been a "fully-fledged professional drag queen for about a year and a half, but I’ve been practising since I was sixteen" and is ready to slay the competition.
Vicki Vivacious hails from Cornwall and is 36-years-old, she says that her drag is "fifty per cent new age, fifty per cent old school and a bit Generation Ru."
The drag queen has worked professionally for 15 years and has previously worked with Little Mix and Danii Minogue in the past.
Cara Melle, 26, originally hails from Atlanta, Georgia, but has lived in the UK for seven years since studying at the London School of Fashion.
She is known as "The Beyonce of the drag scene" in London and said she's excited to "represent black trans women" on the programme.
Michael Marouli, 39, is from Newcastle upon Tyne and has been performing in Gran Canaria for the past 17 years where she says there is a huge drag scene.
She said that being on the show "will be like a Tuesday afternoon for me as being in a dressing room surrounded by hungry competitive queens is literally my life".
Tomara Thomas is a 25-year-old drag queen from Hartlepool, and she describes herself as a "dancing diva" but says that she is more than just that.
She started doing drag at 14 when at dance school but chose to focus on working as a professional dancer before eventually returning to drag, and bringing her Tomara Thomas persona to life.
Alexis Saint Pete
Alexis Saint Pete, 28, describes herself as the "Polish Billy Elliot" but she now hails from London, saying: "I love my country, but I feel more comfortable and safer here in the UK because in Poland, we don't have as much LGBTQ+ representation or acceptance."
As the first Polish drag queen in RuPaul's Drag Race hestory, Alexis is excited to "inspire people to dream big" and to "never give up."
Miss Naomi Carter
Naomi Carter is a 23-year-old drag queen from Doncaster, and she is most inspired by Naomi Campbell and Beyoncé who were the inspiration for her drag name.
She is part of the drag house ZEHAUS, and while Naomi said they're only a small group of queens they are "adored by everyone for kickstarting Donnie’s non-existent drag scene."
Ginger Johnson is a 34-year-old drag queen from County Durham, and she has been working as a drag queen for the past 15 years.
Joking that she is a "a helium balloon in the shape of a woman", Ginger teased that her game plan for the show is to "trick the other queens into thinking I’m a bit of an idiot, when in fact I am an ABSOLUTE idiot."
Banksie, 23, hails from Manchester and describes herself as the "seven foot supermodel of Manchester", and she first started doing drag after watching RuPaul on TV.
Banksie has a connection to season 4 finalist Cheddar Gorgeous as she is also from the Family Gorgeous.

As per usual, the UK edition of RuPaul's Drag Race will be presided over by RuPaul herself, alongside Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr.
The latter two appear in alternate episodes (with the exception of the finale) which leaves one seat on the judge's panel open for other stars.

Vogue Editor-in-chief Edward Enninful will also step into the Werk Room with RuPaul to help give advice to the queens this season, while Strictly Come Dancing pro Karen Hauer will also help the queens with choreography during the tough Rusical challenge.
