Cheryl, who was previously known as Cheryl Hole during their appearances, recently addressed the change of name with a comment on X/Twitter, writing: “All will be revealed diva” in response to an inquisitive fan.

The post included Cheryl’s VT for the series, in which she said: “Here we go again, chapter three- ding ding ding… The UK has failed this diva so thank god I got a passport because here I am in Canada.

“I’m here to represent the past, present and future of British drag… Cheryl is everything quintessentially British - a dry sense of humour, a silly tit in a wig and a glamorous fashionista. See me down Bond Street, yes!

“People may underestimate me in these competitions because I haven’t won a challenge - ever- but it’s my moment. I’ve trained for years for this. These queens will think they’re the frontrunners then bam bam - Chezzy’s coming through swimming.”

RuPaul's Drag Race UK airs on BBC Three in the UK and streams on WOW Presents Plus in the US.
