Hi Baga! Welcome back…

You heifers didn’t think you were going to get rid of me that easily, did you? This time I’m going to take the bloody crown!

Are you nervous about returning to Drag Race?

I’m not nervous. The most famous woman is here to slay. I’m not just Drag Race famous, I’m tabloid famous – do you know what I mean? I don’t normally work with civilian folk. But do you know what… let’s give these girls a run for their money!

What will people remember you for from Drag Race UK series one?

People will remember me from Series one of Drag Race UK for being a method actress… I’m a comedienne, song queen, dance queen, make-up queen, look queen… I’m just everything.

What’s different this time around? Are you “much better”?

Last time I was an old scrubber from Soho… but since then you could say I’ve had a glow up. I’ve had me lips done, I’ve had me teeth done… a bit of Botox, a bit of filler. And I’ve been very very busy. I’ve done so much TV from Celebrity Masterchef, to Blankety Blank, to the Celebrity Circle, and now, I’m the most famous woman in Britain!

Are you ready to commence battle?

I’m going to BRING it this time! The wigs, the outfits are going to be MUCH BETTA. I am ready to battle. I’m going to knock them out one by one! Baga Chipz is going to kick you right up the arse.

I want to be queen of the world! I am in it to win it.
