Drag Race UK fans have expressed their disappointment after it was confirmed that Victoria Scone would not be returning for the show’s fourth season.

Following the Cardiff queen’s knee injury in the Drag Race UK season three premiere, which occurred during her lip-sync against eventual winner Krystal Versace, Victoria was forced to withdraw from the series.

Unlike past competitors such as Eureka O’Hara and Veronica Green, RuPaul didn’t explicitly state whether Victoria had an open invitation for the following season, which didn’t go down well with viewers at the time.

“You pretty much know as much as I know! What Ru said is what Ru said,” she told GAY TIMES shortly after her departure. “We’re still screening season three at the moment. If that happens, it will be very much in the future. I’ve not had an invitation as of yet, so yeah… That’s as much as I can tell you in all honesty!”

On 7 September, BBC Three ru-vealed the 12 fierce queens that are in the running to become Britain’s Next Drag Superstar in the franchise’s upcoming instalment.

Viewers were quick to notice Victoria’s absence from the cast – sparking outrage on social media.

‘Where the hell is Victoria Scone @dragraceukbbc,” one wrote.

Another added: “Awww victoria scone,, more like victoria’s gone:((( im sad she aint on druk4:((((“

“Another year and no Welsh queen again,” said a third viewer. “Where’s Victoria Scone???”

Victoria responded to fans with a short Reel on Instagram in which she jokingly asks, “Is there a better thing to talk about?”
