A'Whora explained: "It's a work in progress. We all say things we regret, we all say things when we're drunk on stage...

"But that's not an excuse. And it's also an opportunity to learn."

Asked who she's backing to win Drag Race UK SE3, A'Whora - who came dressed in tribute to her camp icon, Vivienne Westwood - said: "I adore my drag sister Krystal, obviously. And I'm going to be working a lot on tour with my friend Victoria Scone. But also Charity Kase, even though she's a judgey bitch like me!"
