Scarlett Harlett

Age: 26

From: East London

Quote: "Representation really does matter to me. I have come from nothing. I grew up on a council estate and I feel so proud to have landed myself in one of the biggest shows in the UK right now. I want people to know you can make a banquet out of scraps. I am doing this for the Isle of Dogs!"

Veronica Green

Age: 35

From: Rochdale

Quote: "Am I going to win?! Does the pope shit in the woods?! I was SUPPOSED to win Drag Race UK season two. And if you don't crown me this time Ru, I'm going to come back again. Another variant of Veronica Green... I'm not joking. Just keep bringing me back. I've proved that I'm a heavy weight contender. The judges described me as a triple threat on series 2, and I've already won a badge! I've kept it in a box on my windowsill at home so that I wake up to it every morning!"

Kitty Scott-Claus

Age: 29

From: Birmingham

Quote: "When people come to a Kitty Scott-Claus show, you can expect to have the best night of your life. It's like the BEST hen do – and everybody's the bride! It's everybody's birthday! It's everybody's special day! You'll have a busty blonde bubbly night and it will be fabulous... filled with all the prosexy in the world! It will be fabulous."

Elektra Fence

Age: 29

From: Lancashire

Quote: "I am inspired by northern warrior-women like Bet Lynch and Jane McDonald - hence my obsession with leopard print! But also by strong, glamorous ladies, like Miley Cyrus, Kris Jenner and Madonna!"

Victoria Scone

Age: 29

From: Cardiff

Quote: "I would call myself a drag queen, Drag Artist, Extraordinaire. I understand it's helpful to use AFAB, which stands for Assigned Female At Birth, when we are specifically speaking about the fact that I do not own certain cis-male drag queen genitalia. But we don't describe cis-male drag queens as AMAB Queens, so as a handy tip, I'd just call us all drag queens or Drag Artists, and if you must know, I identify as a Tony Award!"

Choriza May

Age: 30

From: Newcastle

Quote: "As an immigrant queen, I'm someone with a slightly different background to the other queens in the competition, but my drag was born in the UK. There are millions of European immigrants in the UK and I'm so happy to be representing them as drag queen of the immigrants!"

Age: 19

From: Brighton

Quote: "Well, not to brag or anything, but I do have quite a wide skill set. I've got the vocals, I got the dance moves, I got the comedy... so I really think I'm a bit of a threat!"

Krystal Versace

Age: 19

From: Kent

Quote: "My drag sisters call me the flying squirrel on stage. I'm literally chaos, play the track and I'm darting about, high kicks, flips, cartwheels. Everything! I am a blur! I may only be 19, but I'm an unexpected surprise. My drag is refined and polished. I'm the full package."

Charity Kase for RuPaul's Drag Race UK series three© BBC

Charity Kase

Age: 24

From: Lancashire

Quote: "My drag is not entry level. At a Charity Kase show, you can expect shock, horror, gore, glamour and maybe a little bit of vomit!! You have never seen anything like me, here before. I'm an East London queen now, but Manchester is where I'm from originally and where I first started out in drag, so I think that my drag is the perfect blend of a creative, alternative mashup of the Manchester and London drag scenes."

Vanity Milan for RuPaul's Drag Race UK series three© BBC

Vanity Milan

Age: 29

From: South London

Quote: "I'm sophisticated, sexy and savage. I'm not a diva. I'm not a hun. I'm serving unapologetic blackness. Vanity is REAL. I am REAL. I grew up in Mitcham, South London where it's very REAL. I've lived in London 29 years, born and bred - South 'til the death! And my drag is very South London."

River Medway for RuPaul's Drag Race UK series three© BBC

River Medway

Age: 22

From: Kent

Quote: "I'm from Medway in Kent. This is not what you'd see normally walking down the street in Medway. But - it's home! I love it. Because there's so little drag in Kent, there's no specific style. And because of that it's allowed me to do what I want. And here I am - a beautiful butterfly!"

Ella Vaday for RuPaul's Drag Race UK series three© BBC

Ella Vaday

Age: 32

From: Dagenham

Quote: "I've done theatre and dancing my whole life, but Ella has only been part of my life for just over two years. When I first started drag I did it in complete secrecy. I didn't tell my friends. I started my Instagram account hoping to find a following of people who didn't know me, but just appreciated me as a drag artist. I've quickly built up a following, and my drag really took off during the lockdown last year, when I went from around 6,000 followers to 30k."
