RuPauls Drag Race exit for Anubis as star becomes first queen to get eliminated

RuPaul's Drag Race is back for series three and kicked off on Thursday night, welcoming a whole new host of drag queens come to compete to snatch the crown.

But the first one to get the boot tonight was queen Anubis, previously known as Anubis Finch.

Anubis is the stage name of Charli Paul Frank Monét Finch, and they did their best to show off their skills to the judges, but unfortunately was pipped to the post by Elektra Fence.

Elektra Fence is the stage name of Julian Riley, who luckily got told to "shantay you stay" by RuPaul.

The pair battled it out while showing off their best moves while grooving to Little Mix's Sweet Melody.

Anubis was wished well by RuPaul who said "Anubus, you are a young beautiful queen with a bright future ahead."

Upon leaving, Anubis said: "I didn't expect to be the first one out but here I am."

The judging panel on Thursday consisted of RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Matt Lucas.

In future weeks, the guest judge will be a revolving seat and it's been revealed that Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock will even be joining in the fun.

The 29-year-old Little Mix star has always been a fan of the show ever since her bandmate Jade Thirwall starred in the debut series back in 2019.

She revealed the news on Wednesday afternoon as she prepares to step into her new role while the latest bunch of drag queens battle it out to steal the crown.

Leigh-Anne will be judging contestants on their talent, energy, individuality and confidence throughout the series alongside her fellow guest judges Emma Bunton and Alesha Dixon.

The hitmaker called the TV role “an absolute honour” as she admitted: “I’m so excited for this,” when she shared the news to her 7.6 million followers online.

The news was announced on the official RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Instagram page as they shared a poster of the singer herself ahead of the upcoming series.

They captioned the post: “We have some more #DragRaceUK special guest judge news for you …

“@leighannpinnock, @emmaleebunton, and @aleshaofficial will be serving special guest judge realness this series.”

Other guest judges set to appear in the upcoming season are Jay Revell, Charity Shop Sue, Kathy Burke, Matt Lucas, Oti Mabuse, the pop group Steps and Elton John.
