RuPaul's Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne brands Michelle Visage 'inspirational'

She was crowned the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK on Thursday.

And The Vivienne spoke candidly about her time on the competition show with MailOnline, and branded judge Michelle Visage ‘inspirational’ as she discussed her time on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Liverpool queen, 27, said of the TV personality, 51, and what it’s like to be judged by her: ‘Michelle is great, she's just amazing, she's everything you expect her to be.

‘She's completely got your best interests at heart even on the judging panel when she's reading you to death you know she's only saying that because she wants you to do better next week. 

‘She's completely looking out for you and we are so lucky to have her as an ally, and what she did on Strictly was beautiful even though it got her sent home. She's just an inspirational lady.’

The Vivienne added that it was ‘a real shame’ that she had been voted off after landing in the bottom two against Saffron Barker, 19, and AJ Pritchard, 25, on Sunday night. 

The Vivienne said: ‘It was a real shame because she had done so well, and she even killed the vogue routine, but I think for the demographic of Strictly they just didn't understand it.

‘But thank god the LGBTQ+ community really did understand it, and that's why she did it. She did it to get her message across so she's happy with that and I'm happy with that.’

The Vivienne had her own Strictly experience on Drag Race, as AJ and his brother Curtis acted as resident choreographers for her, Baga Chipz, and Divina De Campo’s performance to Rocket To The Moon during the finale.

The professional dancer showed off his stricter side, as he repeatedly made Vivienne re-do her routine again and again because she wasn’t getting it right.

When asked if he put Vivienne through her paces, she said: ‘You can see from my facial reactions, as soon as they showed us what we were going to do I was like “well this isn't going to go well” because I could see that it was pretty much another girl group challenge but thank god I pulled through it.

‘I actually really enjoyed that one as soon as we started going and getting into rehearsals. Curtis was really nice, me and AJ, there was a bit of friction, but we made up, we're all friends.’

The Vivienne was one of the strongest queens in the competition, with only one episode where she struggled, the Girl Group challenge.

During the episode she lost her place during her performance alongside Cheryl Hole and Crystal, which meant she was out of sync and forgot her lyrics.

Of how the finale was different, Vivienne explained: ‘In the Girl Group challenge I just tried to serious, and the Rocket To The Moon I thought well, this is the last challenge, let's just have a ball, what will happen will happen, and I think once I got on stage and the music started you can see I had so much fun on stage. 

Doing well: Despite her worries, The Vivienne said: 'I actually really enjoyed that one as soon as we started going and getting into rehearsals'

‘Really enjoyed it, I loved my verse. I think that helped because I loved the verse so much whereas, with Filfth Harmony, I wasn't really sold on my verse, so I was overthinking the lyrics, overthinking the choreography. 

‘But Rocket To The Moon, I loved the song, I loved my verse, loved all the dancing, it was easier than that one!’

Now that she has been crowned, the world is The Vivienne’s oyster and she is set to have a new show called Morning T&T alongside Baga for the WOW Presents Plus, a VOD platform from the producers of Drag Race.

Good cause: During her time on the show, she spoke about her battle with drug addiction and getting clean, and the queen said she would be interested in helping raise awareness

Helping hand: 'I wanted to be honest on the show about it,' she explained. 'I didn't do it to become an advocate or anything like that, but to help people along the way would be nice'

The Vivienne said of the exciting new show: ‘It's a spoof of a morning TV like Good Morning Britain or Good Morning America, Donald Trump and Margaret Thatcher are the hosts, so as you can imagine it doesn't go well!’

During her time on the show, The Vivienne also spoke candidly about her battle with drug addiction and getting clean, and the queen said she would be interested in helping raise awareness about the issue.

‘I wanted to be honest on the show about it,’ she explained. ‘I didn't do it to become an advocate or anything like that, but to help people along the way would be nice.’

‘So maybe in the future going into schools and talking in schools, because I know for a fact you're always told in school: “Drugs are bad, don't do drugs,” but you never actually heard it first-hand off someone so I think speaking in schools would be nice.’

Exciting: Now that she has been crowned, the world is The Vivienne's oyster and she is set to have a new show called Morning T&T alongside Baga Chipz for the WOW Presents Plus
