Agree! Those 3 are so talented in their own ways. (Have you seen the clip of Divina on the Voice? Amazing!) The others are all worthy of being there too. It’ll be a close call at the end.
One of my dearest friends who lives in up north is a huge Divina fan and told me she’s amazing. I wasn’t initially sold at first but as the weeks go by I am really enjoying her personality more. Divina really embodies an all around queen— she can sew, sing, dance, and has amazing looks. Her being a veteran really shows. She also isn’t afraid to share (her Maggie Thatcher outfit) and knows how work in a group (episode five). I posted some links above but Divina’s clip also showcases her singing. Impressive pipes! She’s also been retweeting or sharing memes of plaid bags that her fans send her from her episode three runway look.

I was a bit disappointed that The Vivienne gave Eureka for her answer in the US drag queen she wanted to meet the most. Eureka is a racist. Nope.

Initially I didn’t like Divina AT ALL. But she’s probably my favourite now along with Baga. Divina seems very kind and human, no nastiness to her.

I’m a bit conflicted because I loved the smaller cast format but I hate that this season is almost coming to an end. It’s been a stellar season with episode five being my fave to date.

The top three for sure will be Baga, Vivienne, and Divina imo.

I’ve had the Frock Destroyers song stuck in my head all week. It’s a bop.

I love all the Drag Race Tunes - Me and the other half were driving home one night and he says "put that song on, the one i like". It was Can i Get an Amen hahaha. He likes the proper one whereas i love the 80s relief one were Alyssa cannot carry a tune in a bag. Me fave though has to be 'Read you Wrote you" (availabe now on iTunes;))

I really like Cheryl now too! She’s come out of herself a bit and I find her super funny in the cut clips when they’re not in drag. I think she’s stunning when in drag just adorable. Her runway looks are so basic but I can’t help but really like her.

Same style

Thank you @hrh89 for being my guinea pig and letting me know if the links work or not. So I didn't think they would restrict/geoblock Drag Race UK content for the UK audience. Imo it's a bit oxy-moronic but hey... 🤷‍♀️

Current Queens (as of Week 5):
The Vivienne
Baga Chipz
Divina de Campo

I've been singing Cheryl verse all weekend.

Love the adlib "DROP ME OUT"
All her ad libs in the song are great. She made that song (while Crystal imo ruined it). “Drop me out” and her sarcastic “bye...!”. Also, love her category Essex line.

I’ve been listening to the remix with Frock Destroyers x Cheryl Hole. The song has been on repeat and the fiancé is now thoroughly annoyed.

My god Cheryl (Cole) was so miserable as a judge!!! I swear she only cracked a smile a couple of times weird.

I think the right queen went tonight. Blu’s ad was crap but Cheryls wasn’t much better. I think it was obvious Blu would go.

I thought the ad challenge was so boring after last weeks! I actually didn’t think any of them made anything special and none of them really made me laugh.

disappointed with divinas behaviour. I kinda get where she’s coming from BUT she overreacted so much and just came across really bratty.

hoping for Baga to win

I think all the queens have their high moment and low moment this season. This week Divina definitely was being bratty about Viv’s answer. Yes, it was shady and yes it was a backhanded compliment but you just have to move on. Move ON! I do like they eventually made up and even held hands at the end. I still like Divina because minus this week, for the most part her behavior has been pretty genuine and always helpful to the other queens. It’s not an act. Also, she’s not one trick pony. I get that she was getting sick of being overlooked and wanted to have a backbone. Her approach was just all wrong.

I’m a bit disappointed how easily Baga was giving up when she thought she might be in the bottom two. I get it was a defense mechanism but what a privilege it is to be on the first season of RDR UK and you just are giving up because you don’t think you could sell it in the lip sync battle? Weak. I love Baga’s humor but I can’t say I have really loved her runway looks so far. They are not as memorable as say The Vivienne’s and Divina’s. Even Blu had a remarkable outfit (for weird science). Btw loved Viv’s outfit for tonight’s challenge. It.was.stunning.

I do agree it was such a disappointment after last week’s stellar episode. I am however excited about next week’s challenge and how the makeovers will go. Love a good makeover.

When I saw it was Blu and Cheryl for the bottom two I knew Blu was going home. A Cheryl Cole-Fernandez-Versini-Payne song is a huge advantage to Cheryl Hole. It bought her an extra week, I just don’t see Cheryl in the top three. I also agree Cheryl Cole as guest judge was so meh. Maybe it was her botox but she was just there and emotionless. Hardly brought anything to the judge’s table. I thought it would be interesting for the two Chez’s to meet and it was so flat...

My top two picks are still Vivienne and Divina. It was nice to see Vivienne vulnerable for a change and I hope we see more of that.
