Name:Baga Chipz
Age: 29
Location: London
Real Name:Leo Loren



Name origin: "I was having a drink in a pub in Birmingham and this fella came up and started flirting with me and my mate. I said: "Look, why do you want burger when you can have me, prime steak on a plate?" And he was like: "Prime steak? more like a bag a chips."

I thought you can’t get more British than a bag of chips can you?! You’ve got your Crystals and your Sandras, but I’m unique. I stand out. If anyone else has my name, then they’ve copied it!" Baga Chipz explain about her drag name on a ITW.

How did you get into drag?
About ten years ago my mate put me into drag. She made me up
as Amy Winehouse with the tattoos and beehive and we went to
a karaoke bar where I sang Back to Black and everyone was like, 'Wow, that’s amazing’. The owner of the boozer said would I like a
gig. I literally smashed his hand off and the rest is history. I’ve
done drag for the past ten years - it keeps a roof over my head
and keeps me in clean knickers.

Name: Vinegar Strokes
Age: 35
Location: London
Real Name: Daniel Jacob

How did you come up with your drag name?

The origins of my name came about with me putting makeup on
for the first time and sending a picture to my best friend, who
replied with ‘Alright Vinegar ****’ and I were like Vinegar? That is
a hot name. I wasn’t sure about ‘****’, so I went on the internet
and Vinegar Strokes popped up and I thought that’s my name!

Name:The Vivienne
Age: 27
Location: Liverpool
Real Name: James Williams

Name Origin
"I love Vivienne Westwood and when I moved to Liverpool everyone used to call me Vivienne as I was head to toe in Westwood, so when I started doing drag it was a natural progression, but I didn’t want one of those cheap, nasty, slutty drag names so I thought of 'The Vivienne' and here she is, there’s only one of them."

How would you describe your style of drag?

My style is like a scouse wife who has come into money, she
moved to LA and blew it all and then she’s had to move back to
Liverpool. I like to have a really fierce look, but I like to be
hilarious on stage so I’m kind of an old school and the new
school put together which I think works.

Comedy is definitely my trump card. My favourite trick in drag is
my vocal impersonations so I do everyone from Kim Woodburn,
Cilla Black, Donald Trump - you name it, I’ll do it - for the right
price!

Name: Blu Hydrangea
Age: 23
Location: Belfast
Real Name: Joshua Cargill

Name origin: "My drag name comes from some Blu Hydrangea bush that is in my garden. My nanna told me that we had to plant it with a rusty nail so that it turns into a beautiful blue hydrangea. I love that story of something coming from a rusty dirty old nail into something beautiful which is kind of like me as a person. I came from someone who wasnít so confident who was a little bit of a nerd into this glamourous colourful being - I love it."

Name: Cheryl Hole
Age: 25
Location: Essex
Real name: Luke Underwood

Can you tell us about yourself and your act?
Iím Cheryl Hole, Iím 25 years old and Iím from the glamorous

death drops and pure entertainment and thatís what you want
from a drag queen isnít it?

Name origins: "My drag name comes from the icon and Geordie princess Cheryl Cole. Cheryl have inspired so much of my life. Iím also in a Girls Aloud drag tribute group called Gals Aloud and I play Cheryl for obvious reasons. "

Name: Sum Ting Wong
Age: 30
Location: Birmingham
Real Name: Bo Zeng

How did you come up with your drag name?
When I started doing drag five years ago, I wanted a name that
was cheeky but also reflected my British Vietnamese heritage, so
I browsed the internet and came across a meme about an
American news report which turned out to be a prank. It was
about a missing Asian plane and all the names of the missing
crew were plays on Chinese names, such as Sum Ting Wong
and ĎWi Tu Loí, and another was ĎHo Lee Fukí. It was wrong in so
many ways, and that was why I chose my name, as my an own act
of reclamation!

Age: 35
Location: West Yorkshire
Real name: Owen Farrow

What makes you unique?
My ridiculous laugh - which isnít fake! Iíve taken a long time to build up my skillset so when you come to a Divina De Campo show you know thereíll be some comedy, some dancing, some singing, and some acting. I think thereís credibility to an artist, who has made everything youíre seeing on stage. The choreography, the music, the lyrics, all of that is my ideas, my vision. Thatís what makes me unique, that and Iím a complete control freak.

Name origins: "So Divina is Italian for Divine who was a big inspiration for me. I have a strong falsetto and I use that a lot as part of my acts and then De Campo means field but I got that really because Iím super camp. I think that drag names should give you a flavour of what youíre going to get so I think Divina De Campo does that - it tells you thereís gonna be more than youíre expecting."

Nmae Scaredy Kat
Age: 20 (19 during filming)
Location: Wiltshire
Real Name: TBA

What are you greatest strengths?
My greatest strength is probably the fact that Iím terrified of
everything. I also have ok makeup skills I guess. I think being the
youngest queen is a blessing and a curse. I havenít got masses to
prove but then again Iíve got barely any experience. Iím hoping
the others will underestimate me, especially, because I look this
cute.

Name origins:  I came up with my drag name because Iím just a bit of a p***y really, and Iím scared of everything from answering the phone to going on Drag Race. Itís all the same to me."

Name: Gothy Kendoll
Age: 21
Location: Leicester
Real Name: Sam Handley

How would you describe your drag?
My drag is dark, contemporary, striking and unique, and
everything that is cool and fresh about UK drag now. The fact
that my name is Gothy lets me bring in those darker elements;
especially when it comes to wigs and makeup.

Name origins: Her name comes from a friend of her who described her as a Ken doll but a gothy one because she used to be wear loads of black, have really black hair, but also be really tanned and wear loads of makeup.

Name: Crystal
Age: 34
Location: London
Real Name: Colin Munro

What are your greatest strengths?
Crystalís greatest strengths are her creative mind. I love to
approach a concept and come up with a look and story and figure
a way to execute that on stage in an exciting way. I bring things
on stage that people havenít seen before. A lot of people might think of drag as the lady in Blackpool, and Iím bringing much more of an East London fashion, creative element to it. Some might call it pretentious but I call it interesting.

Iím not afraid to look a bit ugly, messy, and scary - itís not about
being pretty all the time. I hope I will surprise viewers and show
them that drag isnít just one thing, or isnít just looking like a
woman. Maybe drag can be about messing with gender and
playing with the lines and the boundaries.

Name origins: She calls herself "Crystal" cause she described her drag like "glamorous", "sparkling" and "absolutely worthless".
