Joe Black becomes first to leave RuPaul’s Drag Race UK

SPOILERS… Joe Black is the first fierce queen to leave the new series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK after losing her lip sync battle. 

The international cabaret star wowed viewers with stunning David Bowie and Brighton-inspired looks in last night’s launch show.

Judges questioned Joe’s Brighton look after they failed to see its link to Brighton’s Royal Pavilion in a home town challenge.

“Anyway, I don’t need a crown – I’ve got one,” joked Joe in an emotional Instagram video after the show aired.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to everybody for the lovely messages – there’s quite a lot, I’d love to reply to everybody.

“This [Drag Race UK] has been incredible and lovely and overwhelming so thank you all so much.

“I knew this was going to happen, I’ve known for a while now so to see the reaction to it was more than I could have possibly dreamed.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK continues on BBC Three Monday’s at 7pm and is available to catch-up on the BBC iPlayer.
