Drag Race UK queens on battles with Brexit and Covid

The 12 queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season three have been revealed, and they include the show’s first female queen – Victoria Scone.

The 27-year-old from Cardiff is known as an ‘AFAB’ (assigned female at birth) queen and says she’s constantly faced criticism for not being a “proper drag queen”.

Also taking part is Choriza May, a drag queen from Spain who’s now living in Newcastle and Veronica Green, 35, who’s back for a second chance after she had to leave season two because of a positive Covid-19 test.

Newsbeat has spoken to all 12 queens who are taking part in the new series.
