04/06/14: A new queen is born in the Drag Idol heat final at the Admiral Duncan and will now go forward to represent the cabaret bar in the national Drag Idol UK semi finals.
The battle was hard fought, lashes were flying and make-up was running, the queens gave it their all, sung, danced and whipped their tongues at the packed in crowd.
The 5 heat finalists were Karavan Park, The Bear Did Lady, Stephanie Von Clitz, LoUis CYfer and the winner, all the way from ‘Tennessee’, was Cathy Cream.
One of the very best, Son of a Tutu, hosted the night with an all star panel of judges including Dave Cross, our very own Jason ‘she’s camp Dear’ Reid, Bette Rinse, Tanya Hyde, and the Admiral of the Duncan himself Oliver Blatherwick.
Oliver kindly awarded the winner and host with flowers and champagne all round!
