"Worcester is a quiet rural city, but still manages to be bizarre and interesting, yet warm and homely. I absolutely love it and can't wait to represent my home town on BBC Three."

Ginny Lemon a non binary identifying drag queen from our faithful city is gracing our screens once again as a contestant on Ru Paul's Drag Race UK.

You may remember the sassy and stylish 'Queen of the Midlands' from their time on x-factor in 2017.

Ginny, who has the signature catchphrase 'fancy a slice?', burst onto TV screens saying - "I'm from Worcester- just like the sauce", during auditions held at Thorpe Park in Surrey, Greater London.

After a few years away from the lemon-light she is back on BB3 this Thursday at 7pm as one of twelve contestants on season two of Drag Race UK.

Ginny told the Worcester News she is so excited to bring a 'little slice of Worcestershire sauciness' to our screens.

The 31-year-old said: "Although I was born in Droitwich I have lived in Worcester for over ten years now. It is such a bizarre and interesting place - but homely and warm. I am very proud of Worcester and have a lot of roots here.

" I was one of the founding members of Worcester Pride and heavily involved in Woo Fest. Worcester is a small rural town and it is not as vibrant as others. I am a huge advocate of the LGTBQ+ community here and using queer art form is the best way to express myself and bring some fabulousness to the city.

"I am openly non-binary, the terminology has expanded over the years an I am grateful for that, before I was queer. Now the language has changed the new terms are a way to express myself in this new age of language. I like to think I am an advocate for other non binary people in Worcester.

"Drag is my escape. I created Ginny Lemon after the death of my sister. It is pure escapism in the form of art. Ginny isn't my alter ego, she is a character I created out of an amalgamation of all sorts.

"I am really excited for show to air, I have worked really hard to get here, I won't be watching myself though! It seems like ages since we were filming, 2020 has been the strangest year of my life, the strangest year of everyone's life! I am very tongue in cheek, I am a big joke, and I love it. If it makes people smile and laugh then that's what I want.

"Honestly though, I don't want to go all beauty pageant on you, but I want to thank the people of Worcester who have supported me and believed in me and my art. I wouldn't and couldn't have done it without them."

RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Alan Carr and Graham Norton are all back for the new series, with celebrity guest judges to join the panel each week.

The first episode of series two will begin on Thursday 14 January 2021 at 7pm on BBC iPlayer. Later episodes will be each week.
