How have you stepped it up since UK series one?

Blu is no longer GCSE art project – she’s a masterpiece baby! I’m here to send some bitches home!

What will people remember you for?

People will remember me for being Blu by name and blue by nature!

Why has Drag Race been important to you?

It’s just so important to me to be visible for the queers of Belfast and Northern Ireland.

You’re a Frock Destroyer! How has that been?

It’s been crazy being a Frock Destroyer! We have an album, we have a music video! We still travel all over the world. We went to Morocco, where it is illegal to be gay – I thought I was gonna go to jail! Oh mummy!

What are you looking forward to?

I am the biggest fan of Drag Race. I watch every single season – subtitled or not. I hope that I get to meet some of my idols… and then get to send them home! The old Blu would have never had the balls. But this Blu is covered in balls…

What’s your drag superpower?

My drag superpower is looking beautiful, being sweet and having a venomous tongue!

Are you ready for battle?

I’m ready to make it to the top. I deserve to reign supreme. When I walked into season one, I said let’s paint the town blue. Well how about we paint the world blue!

But RuPaul still makes me shit myself a little bit… so we’ll see.
