Another week has flown by faster than a speeding pterodactyl in a frizzy wig, and that can only mean one thing: it’s time for another Drag Race UK meme round up.
Week six might not have contained a brain-meltingly addictive bop that we’re still (bing) struggling (bang) to get (bong) out of our head (singsangsong) over a week later, but it was still chock full of cheek, audacity, nerve, gall and gumption. What else would you expect from Snatch Game, after all?
Expectations for the iconic spoof panel show were sky high, mainly because Drag Race UK season two has graced us with some spectacularly funny contestants. Lawrence Chaney was definitely considered the one to watch, but the Glaswegian comedy queen’s one-note take on Miriam Margoyles fell flat and she handed Bimini the win.
Speaking of Bimini, can we all agree we want the vegan cis-tem offender to host Countdown instead of Anne Robinson? Ideally as Katie Price, but we’d also happily take her drunk Morning Glory presenter.
As usual, the latest Drag Race UK episode provoked a strong reaction on Twitter, in the form of many, many hilarious memes. Here are some of our favourites.
RuPaul spent most of Snatch Game learning what bellends are, finally announcing: “It’s the bit at the end. You’re watching the BBC.”

Which in turn led to this observation.
Why is it still called Snatch Game on Drag Race UK it should be called Blankety Wank or something

Gemma Collins wasn’t quite the laugh riot on Drag Race UK we were hoping she would be.

But Bimini’s ICONIC impression of Katie Price made up for it.

And it was instantly turned into a meme.

A’Whora and Ellie Diamond both broke down during their heart to heart with Ru. It was as if they were talking to Karamo Brown in a car on Queer Eye or something.

Bimini’s runway look was definitely infectious.

Ex- Drag Race UK queen Baga Chipz used the runway theme to take the Micky out of Divina’s “old-fashioned” drag.

Many people shared their suspicions that Michelle Visage was wearing an H&M outfit (please let it be true).
Don’t worry Michelle I won’t tell RuPaul you are wearing H&M 😂💁♂️ #DragRaceUK pic.twitter.com/G1XQdTWtQS

We sadly lost Tia, but she went out with a bang.
Are you sure? @RuPaul #DragRaceUk
— Tia Kofi (@TiaKofi) February 18, 2021
Plus she – yet again – got to soak up compliments about her killer bod from the Drag Race UK judges.
Tia Kofi: I just feel really emotional and like I’m trying so hard but it’s never enough-
RuPaul: my dear sweet child, you have so much to offer the world. Never forget what makes you amazing and special – you are ✨🌠💖 sample size 💖🌠✨#DragRaceUK
