Kitty Scott-Claus, 29, Birmingham on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK

Kitty Scott-Claus described her drag as being a combination of old school and modern. Her greatest strength is her personality. She admitted that her greatest weakness is sewing, although she assured that she could get by.

Charity Kase’s drag is inspired by the otherworldly. Charity Kase is most excited about acting and sewing. Fans of Charity know to expect, “shock, horror, gore, glamour, and maybe a little bit of vomit!”

Charity is all about pushing boundaries and bringing the unexpected to her live shows.

Scarlett Harlett, 26, East London

Scarlett’s acting skills are her greatest strength, but she noted that dancing is a big weakness for her.

The East Londoner is proud to bring her humble beginnings to the biggest drag stage in the world. “I want people to know you can make a banquet out of scraps,” stated Scarlett. “I am doing this for the Isle of Dogs!”

Vanity Milan, 29, South London

Vanity Milan considers herself to be sophisticated, humble, and spicy. “I’m serving unapologetic blackness,” stated Vanity. “Vanity is REAL. I am REAL.”

She has only been doing drag for around a year, but she has already won a competition called The Crown that was hosted by her now-fellow contestant Kitty.

Choriza May, 30, Newcastle

Choriza May described herself as, “Newcastle’s spiciest, meatiest, and silliest sausage.” She referred to her comedic abilities as being her greatest strength.

The Spanish queen proudly brings an immigrant background to the competition. In other words, she said, “I’m passionate and unique, and I bring a bit of fresh air to the competition.”

Krystal Versace, 19, Kent

Krystal Versace might only be 19 years old, but she has been doing drag since she was 17. She will be bringing stunts to RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, as she’s referred to as “the flying squirrel.”

Krystal emphasized that her strength is the motivation to succeed and referred to herself as a “blur,” yet “refined and polished.”

Victoria Scone, 27, Cardiff

Victoria Scone is making history by being the first cis-female contestant to ever compete on any iteration of RuPaul’s Drag Race. She referred to the achievement as “political,” but wants to just have fun with it.

She called her drag persona “camp, Cardiff, cabaret, disco diva, with a lot of spunk.” Her strength is in traditional drag, but she does cross the line from camp into fashion.

Elektra Fence, 29, Lancashire

Elektra Fence’s look serves the “electrifying” description that she attributed to herself. She brings multiple years of drag, but she also took a break to work as a dancer for 3 years.

Elektra expressed her motivations by stating that, “I don’t just want to be the best, I want to inspire others to be their best.”

Ella Vaday, 32, Dagenham, Essex

Ella Vaday referred to her acting and dancing as her greatest strengths. She described herself as, “the best Beast from the East.”

Ella comes to the competition with 14 years of experience doing drag.

Anubis, 19, Brighton

Anubis has only been doing drag for over 2 years, but her greatest strength is singing. She brings “chaos,” “gymnastics,” and “live vocals” to the competition.

Anubis has experience as a backing singer for big stars, although she’s now ready to step into the spotlight.

River Medway, 22, Kent

River Medway’s strengths include singing, dancing, and creating wigs. As a result, Hannah Montana is a big inspiration for her drag persona.

River said, “I’ve never worn a wig styled by someone else.”

Veronica Green, 35, Rochdale, Lancashire Returns to RuPaul’s Drag Race UK

Veronica Green has been training for the show, but she has been working on developing her comedy chops.

She competed on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Series 2, but had to withdraw from the competition.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Series 3 will start on Sept. 12.
