Drag Race UK final: Where to watch Ru Paul season 3 finale in Sheffield with viewings at Forum and Hemingways
Two bars in Sheffield city centre are gearing up for a party on Thursday when they show the season 3 finale of Drag Race.
The third season of the UK edition of Ru Paul’s hit TV show is set to finish on Thursday, November 25.
And if you were hoping to watch it somewhere with more of an atmosphere than your living room then you’re in luck, as Hemingway’s and Forum will be hosting special viewing parties.
The final episode is sure to bring plenty of laughs, lots of drama and a whole load of entertainment as the remaining queens battle it out to be crowned number one.
Last week the semi-finalists had to complete a stand-up comedy challenge, writing their own material and holding a ‘roast’ – of themselves, the judges and previous contestants.
The runway theme was ‘Oh my Goddess!’, and comedian Kathy Burke made a guest appearance.
After a lip-sync battle the final three queens were announced and they will return this week for one final time.
Which queens are left in Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK season 3 finale?
Last week saw South London-based queen Vanity Milan voted off the show after a tense battle against Krystal Versace.
The pair had a lip-sync challenge to Hallucinate by Dua Lipa, but ultimately Vanity failed to win over the judges.
The result meant Ella Vaday, Kitty Scott Claus and Krystal Versace will go head to head for the title of this year’s Drag Race UK winner.
In previous seasons the finale has come down to four contestants, but this year will see just three battling it out for the crown.
That acts who have now left the show are: Anubis, Elektra Fence, Veronica Scone (owning to injury), Veronica Green, Charity Kase, Choriza May, River Medway and Scarlett Harlett.
Who has previously won Drag Race UK?
The UK edition of Drag Race has proved extremely popular, with millions of people tuning in for the first two seasons, and viewing figures still high for the latest one.
Lawrence Chaney and The Vivienne were the queens who took home the crown in seasons one and two.

Episodes of Drag Race UK have been screening weekly on Thursdays and have been available through BBC Three on iPlayer.
