Drag Race UK 2

With the recent news that filming of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season 2 has been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, the shows FANDOM page and a YouTube video uploaded by thedragbible provided the names of the rumoured cast of season 2.

According to both sources, 11 queens will compete for the title of the UK’s next Drag Race Superstar. Many of them have had gigs cancelled that occurred at the time of filming as well as a notable disappearance from social media.

It is worth noting that the rumoured cast list was uploaded prior to the announcement by a BBC spokesperson that production of the highly anticipated second season has been halted due to the coronavirus.

The first rumoured contestant of season 2 is the self-described “fashion queen of the London scene”, A’Whora.

The second London-based queen rumoured to have made the cut for season 2 is Asttina Mandella. Asttina also featured on Channel 4’s ‘Drag SOS’ last year as a mentor.

The third queen rumoured is Bimini Bon Boulash who is also based in London.

 

Manchester-based Cherry Valentine is the fourth queen rumoured to have made season 2. In her own words she’s been a “drag queen since pre-teen.”

21 year-old Ellie Diamond from Dundee, Scotland is the fifth rumoured queen and describes herself as “the baby doll of Dundee”.

Tayce, the energizer bunny of drag is the tenth rumoured queen. Hailing from Wales, she describes herself as “a lip-syncing/dance assassin.”

The eleventh and final rumoured queen for season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is London-based Tia Kofi.

As the BBC has paused production on season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK due to growing concerns over the spread of COVID-19, we hope that filming can resume in the not too distant future so that we can get to see and enjoy what the next batch of UK girls have to offer once it begins airing on BBC Three and WOW Presents Plus. After all, it is the Olympics of drag.

Here’s to another season of love, laughter and light, henny!
