Despite its second season only airing earlier this year, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is already back on our screens with a brand new cast of queens ready to compete for the crown.

Every Thursday evening at 8pm on BBC3, a new episode will be available to stream as we all find out who head judge RuPaul Charles has chosen as the latest queen to sashay away.

Last night, it was revealed that Brighton-based queen Anubis was the first contestant to be sent packing, after her runway outfits failed to impress the judges.

Speaking about hers and season two queen Joe Black’s representation of hometown Brighton on the show, Anubis – real name Charli Finch – stated she was “gutted” and “upset” that they’ve not had the best track record.

Anubis, who was only 19 years old when the season was filmed earlier this year, has opened up about how “daunting” she found meeting idol RuPaul in the flesh.

“Growing up with RuPaul and with RuPaul’s Drag Race, it was a surreal experience”, said the star.

If she was given one word to describe the infamous American drag queen, she would use “intimidating, cause RuPaul is such a huge queer icon and she’s been around for so, so long now.”

At 60 years old, RuPaul has been filming TV shows long before Anubis was born, and the original US version of Drag Race aired its first season when she was only seven years old.

Speaking at a press conference earlier today, Anubis said of RuPaul: “She’s a very daunting character – she is lovely – but she is flawless to look at so thats quite intimidating, cause i’m not!”

She laughed as she added: “I’m not flawless, but that makes me the beautiful creature that I am”.

Despite her early exit, Anubis has stated she wouldn’t ever turn down an opportunity to return to the show.

“If they did ask me to return, I probably would say yes in a heartbeat,” she claimed.

The hilarious drag queen, who chose her stage name as a nod to her late Egyptian father, explained: “I auditioned for my talents as a singer, songwriter and comedian, but I didn’t get the chance to do that this time around.

“So who knows, I might come back soon, it’s up to RuPaul really!”
