RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Veronica Green has revealed she’s still thinking about whether to take up the offer of returning for season three, having had to leave the show after testing positive for coronavirus.
During last night’s episode of BBC show, the remaining contestants were informed that Veronica would not be coming back after the seven-month hiatus between filming, leaving the queens – and Tia Kofi in particular – extremely upset.
Veronica said that she ‘cried for three days’ when she found out she wouldn’t be allowed back on set, stating: ‘All the hard work I’d put into the show and the effort I’d made preparing to return felt like it was all for nothing.’
Although this is the end of the road for the drag queen in season two of Drag Race UK, RuPaul explained on the programme that she has been invited to join the line-up for season three, which is currently being cast.
However, Veronica hasn’t decided yet whether she’s going to accept the offer.
While speaking the press, the performer said: ‘Well, I’ve got a couple of days left to make a decision so I’m going to take it right to the wire before I make my decision.’
Having seen what Veronica is capable of – her Rats: The Rusical performance and robot/Stepford Wife look being especially memorable – hopefully she’ll decide to return to slay another day on the runway.
After the latest episode of Drag Race UK aired, Veronica admitted on Twitter that she’s still processing what happened.
‘Sorry I’ve not replied to messages yet. Still sinking in what’s happened and want you all to know I will reply to messages at some point,’ she wrote.
‘Not for a while because I need a little time but I’ll get back when I can. Until then just know I’m so grateful for all the love and support.’
Episode five was full of surprises, with the first queen axed from the competition, Joe Black, returning for a second go.
Joe was eliminated for a second time following his lip sync against Tia, after RuPaul tore into the performer for wearing an H&M dress during the Eurovision-themed group challenge.
Joe didn’t have much time to wrap his head around his return to Drag Race UK, as he was only told of the possibility three weeks before filming was due to resume, he commented.
The performer admitted that he would have felt ‘awful’ if any of the other queens had been instructed by RuPaul to ‘sashay away’ after their seven-month break.
RuPaul’s Drag Race UK returns next Thursday at 7pm on BBC iPlayer.
