Below are the names of the 10 contestants:

Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Divina De Campo, Crystal, Sum Ting Wong, Cheryl Hole, Gothy Kendoll, Vinegar Strokes, Scaredy Kat and The Vivienne.

Mama Ru herself describes the contestants as, 'so unique, so courageous and so special.'

'I can't wait for the UK - and the world - to fall in love with them the same way I did.'

Baga Chipz

"Baga Chipz is a pub queen; tart with a heart; Like someone’s auntie I give advice on how to pull fellas and how to get p****d."

"I’m not one of these gorgeous beautiful Kate Moss lookalike drag queens."

"My style is more cabaret, old school, sequin frocks, Shirley Bassey, Danny La Rue, Lily Savage kind of drag."

"I’m common as muck, bagachips from Walthamstow."

Blu Hydrangea

This queen is 23 from Belfast. She describes herself as a, "child of the Ru generation."

"Blu Hydrangea is like a GCSE art project, high fashion from outer space, a cartoon character - with muppet realness."

"She is queen of the makeup brush and her strength lies in her mug."

"Not only am I a look queen but I can dance, I can perform, I can do some funny movements to make people laugh."

Divina De Campo

This queen is 35 from West Yorkshire. She first started in drag in 2005.

"My act is a massive variety of different things. You’ll get some opera, Italian aria, some pop tunes, some show tunes, some blue tunes..."

"I like sing things that are a bit more challenging or exciting that makes people say "Oh my god, I wasn't expecting that.""

A post shared by Divina de Campo (@divinadecampo) on

"A bit of everything for everybody. My style of drag is old school glamour."

"A sequin dress, a big wig, a big lash, an approximate face (laughs)."
