Silence! RuPaul has made her decision, The Vivienne, 29, from Liverpool, has taken the title of the UK’s first RuPaul’s Drag Race Superstar.

Having been crowned she said: “I’m made up, I’ve just won the first-ever season of Drag Race UK this is nuts. That crown is going to look gorgeous, I can see me there washing the dishes in it.”

All three of the final queens (Divina De Campo, Baga Chipz and The Vivienne) went into the final with three RuPeter badges each, so it was a level playing field.

At the beginning of the episode, The Vivienne said: “If you think I’ve gone through all these challenges to go home without a crown you can piss right off.”
