Krystal Versace has been crowned the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season three.
The fashion queen battled Ella Vaday and Kitty Scott Claus in the final lip sync to “You Don’t Own Me” by Dusty Springfield.
She ultimately won to be crowned Drag Race UK’s next drag superstar and receive a stunning scepter.
Following her victory she said on stage: “Oh my god. This has been the most amazing experience I could’ve ever wished for in my entire life.
“And I’m just ready to rule the f**king world!”.
The 19-year-old added in her confessional: “I’m a winner baby! It’s mine! This journey has been amazing, and I am so excited to take that win home for my family.
“It’s time for the Krystal Versace dynasty to reign supreme.”
The final episode saw the trio remix RuPaul’s festive track, “Hey Sis, It’s Christmas” and they were joined by the cast of season three for the performance.
They then served “final three eleganza extravaganza” for the last runway of the season, before Krystal was declared the winner.

Ahead of her win Krystal revealed to PinkNews that there was a dramatic scene between herself and Scarlett Harlett that didn’t make the air.
She said: “I was really kind of gutted that they didn’t leave a lot of that in because that was more heated in person than it was shown.
“I said a lot more. There was quite a heated argument.
“Obviously, there’s so much love now, I love Scarlet. But it would have made such good TV because I literally sat there and went: I’m not buying it, I’m not buying it.
“And apparently, I kept saying over and over again. I don’t even remember. But I was over it.
“Like I was p**sed off. And they cut that out, which would have been great.”
Drag Race UK series three cast are going on tour
Krystal now joins series one winner The Vivienne and series two winner Lawrence Chaney in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
She will head out on an official tour with the rest of the series three cast, including fan-favourites Victoria Scone and Choriza May in 2022.
The tour will visit 29 venues across the UK between 29 August and 16 October, with tickets going on sale this week.
