Drag Race UK series 2: Sheridan Smith weeps as Cherry Valentine and Tayce break hearts with emotional lip-sync

Sheridan Smith wept as she watched two Cherry Valentine and Tayce battle it out during one of the most emotional lip-syncs in Drag Race herrrrstroy.

The Drag Race UK season 2 line-up is proving to be one of the strongest casts the franchise has seen in years and during the latest episode, the queens performed the first UK Rusical, Rats – a suitably warped interpretation of Cats.

After the glittering spectacle and the talent all served their runway looks, NHS nurse Valentine and Tayce, were left to battle it out for their place in the competition.

Miming to Elaine Paige’s version of Memory, the two queens brought the panel – made up of Alan Carr, Michelle Visage, RuPaul and Smith – to tears.

West End star Smith wiped her eyes and told her fellow judges: ‘I’m crying.’

‘Wow,’ RuPaul gasped.

Following Joe Black’s controversial elimination last week, it was time another queen to sashay away.

‘Roses are red, violets are blue. You are Cherry Valentine and we’ll miss you,’ said Mama Ru.

Ahead of the lip sync, Valentine – who has been working as a nurse during the coronavirus pandemic – told producers it wasn’t her time to leave.

‘I do not deserve to go. I do not deserve to leave this competition,’ she said.

As she left the stage for the final time, however, she waved goodbye on a gracious note, thanking the judges for ‘lighting a fire up my arse’.

Leaving a lipstick letter to her cast mates on the dressing room mirror, she wrote: ‘Always remember love yourself first. Can’t wait to pop your cherries again.’

Drag Race UK continues Thursdays at 7pm on BBC Three.
