How did this season's finalists react when they learned who won the crown?

Beard's a winner, baby!

RuPaul's Drag Race UK season four came to an exciting conclusion with finalists Black Peppa, Cheddar Gorgeous, Danny Beard, and Jonbers Blonde competing to snatch the crown. Though the four finalists had a chance to win, it was clear that the finale would ultimately come down to the two frontrunners of the season, Beard and Gorgeous, who had each won four maxi challenges and never landed in the bottom two.

Peppa, Gorgeous, Beard, and Blonde were assembled together to watch the grand finale of Drag Race UK season four, and their reactions to the crowning were shared in a video. Given that only Gorgeous and Beard got to lip sync for the crown, the two queens sat in the middle while watching the finale. They even held hands when the time came for RuPaul to announce a winner.

You can watch the finalists' reaction video to the Drag Race UK season four finale below.

In another video also shared on social media, Beard shared her very first words as the current reigning champion of Drag Race UK.

"As you can imagine and probably see from my face, it was emotional. Honestly, I've got no words," Beard explained. "Thank you to everyone who supported me throughout everything."

The newly-crowned queen continued:

"I hope that this moment opens doors for so many different kinds of drag on RuPaul's Drag Race. I hope drag kings get the opportunity to shine. I want to see more trans contestants, more contestants of color. Drag is anything you want it to be, and this country has so many amazing drag performers from all walks of life. So I hope that this is the start of something new. Who would've thought that a hairy bearded b*tch like me would be able to do it?"

The future is looking fierce for the RuPaul's Drag Race franchise. Congratulations to Danny Beard for a phenomenal season!
