This 'Drag Race U.K.' Queen Just Won Season 2 of the Series

Drag Race UK series 2 winner Lawrence Cheney

And then there was one!

After two months, RuPauls Drag Race U.K. series two has come to a close. Kicking things off with 12 queens, the season saw a seven-month break as a result of quarantine, one performer walk off instead of lip sync for her spot and more. And now we have our end

"The time has come to crown our queen," RuPaul said after a three-way lip sync between Bimini Bon Boulash, Tayce and Lawrence Chaney. While the episode was started as a foursome, Ellie Diamond was eliminated on the runway, leaving way for a final three. "The U.K.'s next Drag Race superstar is Lawrence Chaney."

"I've said a lot of things this season so I'm going to keep this one short and swift: who's ready for the purple reign," Chaney said.

Chaney made a big impression on judges early in the season, first with her charisma but time after time with her comedic wit. Chaney seemed to hit a stumbling block mid-competition that she never fully recovered from. Bimini Bon Boulash, on the other hand seemd to be a dark horse and started racking up the wins ending the competition with four RuPeter badges to Chaney's three. Many thought that she would win. 

Chaney is the first Scotland-based queen to win the crown and in the finale episode indicated that she has no interest in relocating to London.
