Spoilers: Axed Drag Race UK star clears up Cheryl and Michelle Visage' tension'November 8, 2019
** Warning – spoilers for RuPaul’s Drag Race ahead **
Social media lit up last during the latest episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK when viewers sensed some tension between Michelle Visage and guest judge Cheryl.
The Strictly Come Dancing contestant and the pop icon shared a very awkward stare-off last night as they disagreed over criticism concerning contestant Baga Chipz.
Now, Blu Hydrangea – who was sadly the latest queen to leave the competition last night – has spoken out about the potential spat and suggested they have a good old fashioned dance-off to settle any beef.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, the queen insisted that she thought everything was ‘fine’ between the two during filming, but she has an idea if they want to iron out any aggression.
‘If they want to have a fight, that would be really hot,’ Blu teased. ‘They should have a dance-off!
‘I think that would be a really cool dance-off, with Michelle on Strictly and Cheryl being such a good dancer.’
While it was sadly Blu’s time to leave the workroom last night, that didn’t diminish the love and light she had helped spread throughout her tenure on the first ever UK version of the show.
‘I feel like it was definitely my time,’ she admitted. ‘There’s always the one robbed queen every season.’
With the news that the reality show has been commissioned for another series (and is taking applicants now!), it’s surely only a matter of time before the inevitable Drag Race All Stars: UK Edition. Luckily, we think the producers have found their first contestant.
‘Absolutely!’ the 23-year-old squealed when asked if she’d consider entering a UK All Stars. ‘If they want me back in that big, pink room then I’ll be there in a heartbeat!
‘It’s done wonders for my career and wonders for my drag, so if that’s what a few weeks on a TV show can do for me, I can only imagine what it’ll do if I do it a second time with all this new-found confidence!’
One of the most impressive aspects of Blu’s performance was her dedication to shedding a light-on the struggles that LGBTQ people face in Northern Ireland, including the illegality of equal marriage (although this will change when it becomes legally recognised in January 2020).
‘It was really important [to raise awareness],’ she stressed. ‘Some of the girls in the workroom didn’t even know that [equal marriage] wasn’t legal. I just wanted people to talk about it, like [when Davina De Campo brought up] Section 28.
‘I didn’t know about it, but I’m sure a lot of people my age don’t, so they had to go out and research it.’
The Northern Irish performer has also left an enviable legacy behind on the show. As part of the seminal girl-group The Frock Destroyers. Blu can now proudly boast that she managed to beat Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez in the charts (and release a bop at the same time).
