RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s Bimini Bon Boulash worked their magic on Roman Kemp this week and it’s safe to say his drag persona was pretty incredible.
The radio presenter, 28, was turned into Ro-Man Eater by Bimini, complete with fierce make-up, a sky high blue wig and a very daring silver outfit.
Roman even gave his first ever drag performance on Capital, reading out the lyrics to a song which had been written just for his new drag persona.
Sharing pictures from the different stages of the process, Roman was first seen in a white dressing gown, getting made up while Bimini watched on and directed the process.
A wig cap was then applied to his hair, ready for the next stage of the process, as Roman’s natural eyebrows were glued down and covered up to make way for a far fiercer pair.
Extreme contouring gave Roman defined cheekbones and padding was added to fill out the costume, which consisted of a tiny silver sparkly leotard with large shoulder pads and tassels.

Following the transformation, co-host Sian Welby commented: ‘You would not know that this is our very own scruffy Roman Kemp who’s barely brushed his hair normally. The eyelashes are incredible, the lips, they eyebrows are totally different.’
While Bimini posed in a striking outfit of their own, complete with thigh high red boots, Ro-Man Eater went for the bare foot look instead, donning a pair of tights but no shoes.

Bimini wasn’t just there for the makeover, however, as they also educated listeners of the station about the importance of Pride Month for the LGBT+ community.
They said: ‘I think Pride is about just being able to accept yourself. And it’s fine for people that just haven’t reached there yet.
‘If you’re listening and you feel that you’re not ready to come out, you’re a bit afraid of that, know that there is no destination to get to.
‘You’ve got to take things slow, do it for yourself, and ultimately Pride is about coming together as a community and just celebrating who we are and the diversity, and celebrating ourselves for being ourselves.’
