Warning: spoilers for Drag Race UK series 3 episode 2 ahead.
The second queen has been eliminated from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK as the competition well and truly heats up.
After Anubis became the first eliminated queen, this week saw Elektra Fence make her departure from the competition after she placed in the bottom two and faced off against Vanity Milan.
The second episode of the new series saw the remaining queens tasked with putting on fitness-inspired performances in teams, with moves choreographed by guest judge, Strictly Come Dancing star Oti Mabuse.
They then took to the catwalk to serve some red carpet-inspired realness.
The judges, including Michelle Visage, RuPaul Charles and Alan Carr, weren’t exactly blown away by Elektra’s look.
Michelle said: ‘Drag is a balancing act, as you know, it’s about proportion and symmetry and because of the cut [of the outfit] you look lost in it.
Alan added: ‘I think if the category was come as a gay Star Wars character, then I think you would have hit the nail on the head. I know you’ve got a bit of sparkle there but that’s not enough for me.’
However, upon her exit, RuPaul told the 29-year-old: ‘Elektra Fence, you are a kilo-watt queen with a high voltage future. Now sashay away.’
Elektra said: ‘I’m gutted. But it is what it is. I gave it my all and I am so proud.
‘The pocket rocket, Elektra Fence, got here and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. I’ve wanted this so much. I want the world to know that Elektra was here. Get those tickets booked for the Vegas show ‘cause you’ll see me there. World peace!’
Meanwhile, Krystal Versace has proven that she’s going to be a tough one to beat, winning for a second week in a row.
This year’s series looks to be one of the most exciting yet, with the line-up also including the programme’s first ever cisgender woman.
Victoria Scone explained that some people refer to her as an ‘Afab queen’ – meaning ‘assigned female at birth’ – but she prefers to just call herself a drag queen.
The 27-year-old, who hails from Cardiff, added: ‘It feels right! I definitely didn’t invent the art of drag for women. I am not the first and I certainly won’t be the last…’
Drag Race UK series 3 lands on BBC iPlayer on Thursdays at 7pm.
