Drag Race UK’s Baga Chipz and Blu Hydrangea to compete in the first ever international All-Stars edition
DRAG Race UK stars Baga Chipz and Blu Hydrangea are competing in the first ever international All-Stars edition of the hit reality show.
The duo – who featured in the first BBC Three series in 2019, which was streamed by 12 million viewers – will face off against queens from countries including US, Canada and Holland in the upcoming spinoff.
Baga, 31, and Northern Irish contestant Blu, 25, finished third and fifth respectively in Drag Race UK and garnered a huge fanbase after forming girlband The Frock Destroyers with runner-up Divina De Campo, 36.
Their song Break Up (Bye Bye), which they performed for a challenge in the show, scored them a Top 40 hit on the UK singles chart and led to the release of album Frock4Life in December last year.
Almost 11,000 fans later signed a petition to make them the UK's entry at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest.
An insider said: "Fans of RuPaul's Drag Race have been calling for queens from all the different versions of the show to unite and finally their wishes have been granted.
"Baga Chipz and Blu Hydrangea are fantastic representatives of the UK drag scene.
"In addition to being glamorous and talented, they have an acerbic and filthy sense of humour, and don't mind poking fun of themselves.
"The rival queens are going to be shaking in their heels when they seen them strut into The Werk Room."
The international All-Stars season is set to begin filming imminently and will be separate to the Eurovision-inspired singing contest Queen of the Universe, which was announced last month and will also feature international Drag Race stars.
Since competing on Drag Race UK, London-based Baga has made a number of appearances on other reality shows including Celebrity Masterchef and Celebrity Karaoke Club.
She most recently appeared alongside Charlotte Crosby and Denise Van Outen on Channel 4's first celebrity edition of The Circle, which concluded on Monday, adopting the identity of cleaning guru Kim Woodburn.
The second series of Drag Race UK concludes on BBC Three tonight with queens Bimini Bon-Boulash, Ellie Diamond, Lawrence Chaney and Tayce competing for the title.
