Warning: spoilers ahead for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK series 3 episode 8.

Series three of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK has reached a pivotal point, when there is no clear queen who deserves to leave the competition.

While this makes for fantastic viewing, it also makes predicting an eventual winner that much more difficult, as the stars of the BBC Three series race neck and neck to the finish line.

In the latest episode of Drag Race UK, the queens unleashed their inner thespians in Bra Wars, an intergalactic adventure that saw them transform into fabulous versions of iconic Star Wars characters.

While some queens shone above the rest in the acting challenge and Scene Stealers runway, everyone performed admirably, and so fully deserved the jaw-dropping elimination twist that RuPaul handed to them.

As we’re transported to a galaxy far, far away, here’s our ranking of the queens after episode eight from top to bottom.

Ella Vaday

Despite her obvious theatrical talent, it appeared while filming Bra Wars that Ella was struggling, possibly overwhelmed by a desire to prove herself as the final fast approaches.

While her take on Darth Shader was out of her comfort zone – as she admitted she’d rather be Braberella, the role Kitty took for herself – Ella didn’t moan about it, throwing herself into her performance.

Not only did her take on the former Jedi Knight spark laughter and admiration from the judges, but her look on the runway, inspired by an Oompa Loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, was utterly inspired and a far cry from her signature glam.

Ella pushed herself, even when she thought she might mess up, and it paid off big time.

Kitty Scott-Claus

One thing’s for certain – if you throw Kitty into an acting challenge, she is never going to disappoint.

Just like with her portrayal of Gemma Collins on Snatch Game, Kitty’s performance as Braberella was predictable, but the queen knows what she’s good at and she plays to her strengths.

On the main stage, Kitty was a vision with her depiction of Kate Winslet’s Rose from Titanic, whipping off her long skirt for a fun if admittedly slightly dull reveal.

Nonetheless, a gorgeous runway ensemble paired with a strong maxi challenge saw Kitty instantly earn her place in the semi-final.

Krystal Versace

Over the past few weeks, Krystal has been opening up more and more on Drag Race UK, revealing her vulnerable side and showing more of her personality to viewers.

Tonight, she explained how her dyslexia means that she can struggle with picking up tasks such as learning lines as quickly as others, which was playing on her mind as she took on the role of She-3P-Hoe in front of judge Michelle Visage.

After some kind words from Michelle, who urged her not to worry about being perfect, Krystal ended up delivering a really funny performance as the campier cousin of C-3PO.

While her runway look as Cruella De Vil could have gone even bigger or featured an evil spin, it was stunning and Krystal absolutely deserved to be saved.

Vanity Milan

Vanity had one of the hardest jobs in the acting challenge, as only her face – which was painted blue – was visible for her performance as Baby Yolo.

Nonetheless, she didn’t let the difficulty of the task at hand stop her, as she stood out in the film with her spin on the adorable Baby Yoda.

The runway saw Vanity yet again elevate her beauty, donning an orange dress that looked magnificent and a gorgeous blonde hairdo to pay tribute to Halle Berry’s character Nisi in the 1997 film B.A.P.S.

While the judges were right to pick Vanity up on repeatedly wearing orange, Vanity also did not deserve to lip sync for her life, so we were relieved when we found out that she, as well as the other three queens, had made it through.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK returns next Thursday at 7pm on BBC Three and is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
