Baga Chipz is a notorious staple amongst the UK Drag scene. She has been performing across London in pubs and clubs for the last 10 years and has just made a huge splash on the first ever season of RuPauls Drag Race UK, reaching the final three. One of only ten queens selected from across the UK and Ireland, Baga has already had a touch of reality limelight on Drag Queens of London which was shown worldwide and is known to many as the face of G-A-Y Porn Idol at Heaven nightclub. She’s the kind of drag queen that “gets her t**s out for the lads,” she says. “[I’m] a pub queen; Like someone’s auntie I give advice on how to pull fellas and how to get pissed … I’m common as muck, bagachips from Walthamstow.”
Holly Stars is an icon, and a Gorgeous natural beauty. She hates her neighbours, Fat Julie and Posh Sue, and is thrilled that her husband Gary’s gettin’ out of prison next week. She’s almost excited about this show, but doesn’t like the West End that much as it’s a bit posh.
