Bianca Del Rio returned to the world of RuPaul's Drag Race on last night's All Stars - but she didn't stick around for long.

The seaon six winner's surprise appearance was initially revealed as a lip-sync against top contestant of the week, Ginger Minj.

However, Bianca - who never lip-sycned on her own season - then decided to call the whole thing off.

"Well, actually, no"

Asked by Ru "are you ready to lip-sync the house down, boo?", the turbaned former Attitude cover star Bianca replied: "Well, actually, no.

"I've decided that I'm not interested in doing it because I didn't have to do it in my season, so why do it now?"

Fair point.

"Take notes girls," the 46-year-old then added. "If you do it right the first time, you don't have to come back!"

The episode's eventual lip-sync assasin was then revealed as (the brilliant) Mayhem Miller.

On Instagram. Bianca is one of the most-followed Drag Race contestant ever, with 2.5 million followers at the time of writing.

In June 2019, New York magazine ranked her  in the top spot on their list of "the most powerful drag queens in America".
