And from the reactions of the audience at The Regent on Tuesday, there were clear screams for fan favourites including break out star and finalist Bimini Bon Boulash from Norfolk that has gone on to host an E4 series and walk the catwalk at London Fashion Week.

Tayce, who signed to a model agency post-TV series, A'Whora, another London Fashion Week catwalk model, and, winner of Series 2, Lawrence Chaney also gave killer lip-sync performances that made the audience love them even more.

What was particularly great about the tour was it demonstrated why each member of the cast had got onto Series 2 and deserved to walk away from the crown.

Joe Black did not really get to showcase her dark cabaret drag when she was on RuPaul's Drag Race and was sent home twice in two episodes but her performance was outstanding, funny and showed camp at its very best.

Similarly, Sister Sister, who received lots of abuse from trolls after appearing on the show, did an unhinged, in the best possible way, lip-synch.

Before the curtain closed, the audience was dancing, brimming with mirth and clapping like mad, and that should really tell anyone considering whether to attend all they need to know.
