RuPaul’s Drag Race UK ages: How old are the season two queens?

How is Veronica Green the oldest ?!!


With every season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, comes the same sense of shook when we learn the true ages of these queens. Drag Race UK is arguably the most surprising of all previous seasons – the queens you predict to be the oldest are actually the youngest, and the most youthful-looking contestants are actually the oldest. Maybe this is what drag does to you, makes you looks around 26 forever.

Here are the queens’ ages of this season’s Drag Race UK:

Ellie Diamond

The youngest in the group is Ellie Diamond. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise because of her youthful-looking face and innocent aura. Ellie’s from Dundee and is the tallest queen of the season being 6ft4 out of heels.

Next up is A’Whora. This London-based northern queen is the second youngest queen on the show and yet seemed to be the one of the most known when she entered the Werkroom

At 23 again is Glasgow’s Lawrence Chaney. Anyone else surprised? Considering she’s almost the baby queen, she seems the most settled with her drag style and the most confident.

East End’s Bimini is 26. Bimini is one of the youngest but already on her way to making a big career for herself and even has her merch store linked on her Insta.

Cherry Valentine

Age: 26

Next up is Cherry who’s 26. Outside of Drag, Cherry is a mental health nurse and has been working through the pandemic. Earlier this week, she posted a pic of her in scrubs to her Insta.

Also in the 26 group is Tayce. At such a young age, Tayce has made herstory as the only Welsh queen of Drag Race.

27-year-old Asttina is another proud East London queen. She’s a trained choreographer and has already worked with Little Mix, Pussycat Dolls, Melanie C, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Fleur East even before hitting 30.

Joe Black

And we’re into the 30s. Joe Black is Brighton’s drag queen of this season. When she arrived on the show, she was undoubtedly the most well-known, which is maybe a credit to her many years in the business.

Tia Kofi

Nottingham uni’s alumni, Tia Kofi is also 30. Again, this is a surprising one – I thought she was one of the youngest? Tia has made many attempts at breaking fame through SU videos and X-Factor auditions but finally, she’s made it.

Ginny Lemon

Age: 31

Ginny Lemon is 31 and I’m not sure if I’m shocked or not, she could literally be anywhere between 20 and 60 years old.

Sister Sister

Age: 32

Second oldest on the list is Liverpool’s Sister Sister. Her age matches her mature and measured personality, as well as her unique blue circle drag style.

Veronica Green

Age: 34

And finally, the biggest surprise of all the Drag Race UK ages is Veronica Green being the oldest in the group. Both in and out of drag, you would predict she’d come more towards the top of this list but she’s actually the oldest and she looks amazing.
