Liverpool’s The Vivienne has been crowned the winner of the first ever UK series of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
The 29-year-old queen - aka James Lee Williams - beat fellow finalists Baga Chipz and Davina Da Campo to claim the coveted title, finally taking the crown after beating runner-up De Campo in a lip-sync battle to I'm Your Man by Wham!.
Commenting on her success, The Vivienne said: "This is nuts! That crown is going to look gorgeous. I can see me there washing the dishes in it."
As well as taking the title, she won an all-expenses-paid trip to Hollywood to create a digital series with the producers of Drag Race UK.
Thursday night’s final brought to a close an eight-week series which has proved to be BBC Three’s most popular entertainment programme since the channel moved online in 2016.
The BBC recently announced that the show would be returning for a second series.
