Lorraine Kelly apologises for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Victoria Scone blunder: ‘I’m an eejit’

Lorraine Kelly has apologised after making an accidental RuPaul’s Drag Race UK blunder on today’s show.

The new series of the beloved BBC Three show kicked off on Thursday night, introducing the 12 queens hoping to impress judges Ru, Michelle Visage, Alan Carr and Graham Norton.

Victoria Scone is making history as the first cis-gender woman taking part in the franchise, and Lorraine couldn’t help but announce the milestone moment on her programme this morning.

However, as she announced Victoria’s place in the competition, she accidentally got her name wrong.

‘One of the best ones so far everyone is saying is Victoria Sponge,’ Lorraine said, instead of Victoria Scone. ‘She is the first female drag queen and she’s fabulous. They’re all fabulous.’

Viewers immediately picked up on the blunder, with one writing: ‘NOT LORRAINE CALLING @VictoriaScone VICTORIA SPONGE.’

Lorraine was red-faced over her honest mistake, and responded: ‘OMFG did I actually say that out loud. I’m an eejit – massive apologies to Her Majesty @VictoriaScone.’

The launch episode of Drag Race UK series three Anubis, 19 from Brighton become the first contestant to sashay away.

 

 

 

 

She faced Elektra Fence, as both queens had to lip sync for their lives to Total Eclipse of The Heart by Bonnie Taylor.

Graham said of Anubis’ two runway looks: ‘For your hometown queen look, I really enjoyed it. And for this [My Favourite Things look], it is a bit mum going to a dinner dance with crochets all over an evening dress.’

Upon leaving the competition, RuPaul told Anubis: ‘You are a young beautiful queen with a bright future ahead. Now, sahay away.’

‘I didn’t expect to be the first one out, but I am,’ Anubis said upon exiting. ‘I showed off some gorgeous little looks and I couldn’t be prouder of myself.’

In a nod to her fellow Brighton queen and friend, Joe Black’s shock departure in the previous series, Abubis left a message on the mirror of the werk room mirror, saying: ‘Camp as f*** darling! The curse of Brighton lives on. Love you all, Anubis.’

Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
