RuPaul crowned Drag Race UK Series One’s Blu Hydrangea a winner, baby The 26-year-old Northern Irish queen is the first-ever winner of the BBC Three’s brand new international series, taking the title of Queen Of The World back home to Belfast.
On being crowned, Blu Hydrangea said: “Oh mummy!! AAAAH! Northern Ireland, I’m taking the crown home, home, home, HOME! Who’d have thought it… One wee shady boy from Northern Ireland is now Queen Of The World!”
Blu Hydrangea wins an all-expenses-paid trip to Hollywood to record a duet with RuPaul, a portion of the proceeds of which would be split equally between Comic Relief and Children in Need.
The series saw nine iconic queens from different franchises and cultures competing in an international arena for the first time, showcasing their country’s finest drag in their bid to become Queen of the World. After five dramatic eliminations, Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Mo Heart, and Jujubee were the fabulous four left to compete in a final lip-sync smackdown for the crown.
Blu Hydrangea was the first-ever Northern Irish queen to take part in RuPaul’s Drag Race, when she made her 2019 debut on the brand new BBC Three series at 23 years old. After coming fifth in the first series, Blu has since toured the world as part of the Frock Destroyers pop group with her Series One sisters, Baga Chipz and Divina De Campo. On RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Versus The World, Blu consistently impressed the judges, from her fun initial variety show cheerleader routine performance, through to her show-stealing Snatch Game as Mike Myer’s Austin Powers – complete with a surprise transformation to Doctor Evil.
