On the fifth episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK , Jade Thirlwall appeared as a guest judge for the girl group challenge.

The Little Mix songstress is a vocal ally of the LGBT+ community and has worked with a number of former Drag Race contestants, including Willam, Alaska 5000 and Courtney Act.

But for her first time as a judge, host RuPaul had one question for her – and Jade’s answer did not disappoint.

Ru asked the Geordie lass: “Jade, now that you’re a judge, what would be the main difference between your style of judging and Simon Cowell’s?”

Without missing a beat, the 26-year-old quipped: “Well, for starters Ru, Simon has much bigger t*ts.”

As Ru and the other judges – Michelle Visage and Graham Norton – burst out laughing, Jade proved she had more comedy up her sleeves.

Grinning, she quickly added: “It really is true.”

The remaining six drag queen contestants – Cheryl Hole, Baga Chipz, Divina De Campo, Crystal, The Vivienne and Blu Hydrangea – were tasked with becoming two girl groups.

They were instructed to write lyrics to the same song – a farewell track, because the groups’ performances would be their first and last.

Cheryl, The Vivienna and Crystal came together as Filth Harmony, with the trio performing first.

Michelle was left disappointed with The Vivienne’s performance, with the other judges agreeing that she’d had a bit of a misstep.

Cheryl, who performs as part of drag troupe Gals Aloud, was hoping to triumph and she impressed Jade, Graham and co.

The Essex queen said: “Little Mix are such a huge inspiration. To finally do well in this competition and in a challenge that means so much to me,” with Michelle adding: “It’s a lot.”

Crystal was the bad girl of the group, and received critiques of being the “other member”, however her runway presentation was a panel-favourite.

Baga, Blu and Divina teamed up to become the Frock Destroyers – a play on a much more X-rated group of porn stars.

London-based Baga impressed with her vocals and her over the top runway ensemble.

Irish Blu came out with a horse on her head and her message about gay rights.

Divina, who appeared on BBC singing show All Together Now, impressed Michelle with her singing and dancing.

Even Jade said: “You’ve got a vocal range I could only wish for, I love your singing.”

The remaining queens had to dress as if they were going to the races

The Frock Destroyers won the challenge, with all three taking home a Ru Peter Badge, while Cheryl was safe.

That meant that Crystal and The Vivienne ended up in the bottom two, having to lip-sync for their lives.

They had to perform to Little Mix’s Power, with The Vivienne staying, and Crystal sashaying away.
