RuPaul’s Drag Race UK finally returned to screens in September 2022 with 12 new queens competing to be the UK’s next drag superstar.

Sadly, we had to say goodbye to East London queen Just May almost as soon as we got to know her when she was eliminated after losing a fierce lipsync to Mabel’s Let Them Know against Dakota Schiffer.

Chatting exclusively to heat following her elimination, Just May revealed how she really feels about going home first, Geri Halliwell’s reaction to her drag, and her secret connection to Gogglebox legend Scarlett Moffatt.

As the (self-proclaimed) world’s premier Geri Halliwell impersonator, Just May is obsessed with all things Ginger Spice so we had to find out if the real Geri had reached out to her following her appearance on Drag Race.

While Geri hadn’t been in touch with her directly, Just May told us, “Well, a friend of mine did get a text saying, ‘Oh, lovely, amazing!’

“I mean, I'll take it. It's a step up from ‘get that cross-dresser away from my house!’”

But when we asked if that means she's got the Geri Halliwell seal of approval, May admitted, “I don't think we can go that far, babe. I think that I'm still teetering on the edge of a lawsuit.”

There’s no shortage of celeb fans in Just May’s DMs though, as she revealed that Scarlett Moffatt had been in touch - and the pair might just have an exciting collaboration in the works.

“I am a huge fan of Googlebox and I have met Scarlet Moffatt at a brunch once or twice. She loves drag and she did send me a message.

“That was nice, I thought, ‘Oh great, can I come on your podcast and talk about scary things now?’”

May added, “I love Gogglebox, get me on there!”

Celebrity Gogglebox producers, we hope you’re paying attention.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK continues on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer every Thursday from 9pm.
