Ru crowns the first ever winner of RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs The World.

Blu Hydrangea has been crowned the first ever Queen of the Muther-tucking World in the finale of RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs The World.

The finale had come down to a battle between the US and UK, with Blu, Baga Chipz, Mo Heart and Jujubee all in the running.

The queens had to compete in a number of lip synchs, with first Mo eliminating Baga and then Blu triumphing over Juju to set up a final showdown to Kylie Minogue's 'Supernova'.

After the final two had given their all, Ru declared Blu to be the winner, in the process making her the first queen from Northern Ireland to win any edition of Drag Race.

After her win, Blu said: "Oh mummy!! AAAAH! Northern Ireland, I'm taking the crown home, home, home, HOME! Who'd have thought it... One wee shady boy from Northern Ireland is now Queen Of The World!"

RuPaul's Drag Race UK will return for a new series on BBC Three later this year.
