Drag race uk where are they now

Singles, Netflix and Little Mix: Everything the queens have been up to since Drag Race UK

Bimini has been on nearly every magazine cover going


It’s been over two months since the Drag Race UK finale and I’m still having withdrawal symptoms. Luckily the queens have not been quiet since Lawrence Chaney was crowned the winner of season two.

All over Twitter and Instagram they’ve been celebrating each other’s success and shouting about the new projects they’re all working on and I just love to see it.

Since the show ended the queens have been busy getting book deals, tours and releasing singles. A’Whora is performing at over 200 events, Bimini is now a model and Tayce is doing sponsored content for Heinz Baked Beans.

All the queens will be coming together again next year when they all take part in the Drag Race UK tour. The tour was originally meant to just be the four finalists, however after backlash from fans all the queens have now been added to the tour.

This is everything the season two queens of Drag Race UK have been up to since the show ended:

Is there anything Bimini hasn’t been up to since the show ended? Firstly they made the very excitement announcement they would be releasing a book later this year titled “A Drag Queen’s Guide to Life”.

If a book deal wasn’t enough Bimini has also announced they have been signed by Next Models as part of the main booking list.

Bimini was honoured with a mural in their hometown of Norwich starring their first look of the series – the Norwich football team outfit. Sadly the mural has been painted over in an act of vandalism.

And they haven’t stopped working. Bimini has been on the cover of Evening Standard magazine, Notion magazine and Time Out magazine.

They’ve starred in Little Mix’s video, hung out with Sadiq Khan, starred in a campaign for Selfridges and if that wasn’t all they’ve also just released a single called “God Save The Queen.” Phew, I’m exhausted just reading that. How does Bimini do it all?

She’s starred in Little Mix’s Confetti video alongside Bimini and A’Whora. Tayce has also been busy performing as well, including at the Drive Time Drag show.

Easily the most iconic thing that’s happened to Joe Black since leaving the show, is the news that she’s auctioning off *that* H&M dress for charity.

Joe announced on her Twitter people could enter a raffle to win the dress in order to raise money for Sussex Beacon which is a charity helping people with HIV in the Sussex area.

Joe has also announced her own tour for September and will be joining Tia Kofi and the UK Huns at Holy T in The Park.

Veronica also joined Tia and The Vivienne for a show on the 17th May. Oh and she’s signed up for Cameo too if you want a personalised message.

Shortly after the Drag Race finale Asttina made the very sad announcement that her mother had passed away.

Writing on Instagram she said was “broken beyond belief” and celebrated her mother Dawn Elizabeth Seaton for being the “strongest most powerful woman ever to walk this earth”.

She wrote: “Dawn Elizabeth Seaton – Born 1st Oct 1964 was the strongest most powerful woman ever to walk this earth, battling and fighting breast cancer, and fighting every second against her illness and I know and so happy that she is no longer in pain and she is at peace, up above among the stars and heavens.

“THANK YOU MUM, THANK YOU BEING YOU, THANK YOU FOR THE LIFE YOU GAVE ME AND THE 28 YEARS WE SHARED TOGETHER.”

Asttina thanked everyone for their support and has been keeping a low profile since she shared the sad news.

Cherry Valentine

During the last few months Cherry has been continuing to work as a nurse but recently released her debut single called “Aesthetic”.

Cherry will also be appearing on the UK Drag Race tour and speaking on a panel at Manchester Pride later this year.
