RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season 3: Who was eliminated after Draglexa in week five?

Who sashayed away as the series nears the halfway point?

| Updated:

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK got real this week – with the leading queen not a happy bunny with her superstars in the making.

Challenged with creating an ad for a ‘Draglexa’, the queens failed to live up to Ru and the judges’ expectations.

As a result, there were no winners – and they were all put in the bottom.

But only one queen was given the axe after a killer rundown and an awkward backstage moment.

Here’s who sashayed away…

Who left Drag Race UK this week?

After falling into the bottom two for the second week in a row, Charity Katse sashayed away.

She was up against Scarlett Harlett – who she previously faced last week as well.

In a bitter twist, both were voted by their fellow queens as the ones that didn’t deserve their place.

Charity was eliminated after performing to Big Spender by Shirley Bassey,

In an emotional goodbye, she told RuPaul: “Thank you for the opportunity, for the stage, and for showing my drag to the world.

“I wish you a wonderful season. I’m really proud to be representing alternative drag and I’m happy with
everything I’ve done here.

“I hope there’s somebody out there who sees themselves in me and can be inspired by what I have brought to the show.”

Speaking after the elimination, Charity said: “I learned that my drag isn’t necessarily to all the judges tastes… But that’s ok!

“I do my drag for myself and I’m really proud of the things that I showed on the TV.”

Seven queens remain in the competition.
