Well, it had to happen eventually. Drag Race UK season two is over, and we’ve been left feeling as deflated as Ginny Lemon’s fake boobs after she lets the air out.

But what a finale it was. It was filled with unexpected moments, from Bimini telling Ru that they’re a “grower not a show-er”, to Lawrence managing to learn a whole dance routine without having a bit of a cry while questioning his life choices.

The ending was pretty unexpected too – for some people, at least. Bimini’s very vocal fan base had convinced themselves the win was in the bag, but it was the arguably more consistent Lawrence Chaaaney who took home the prize of a novelty pen and some WH Smith vouchers.
