A BBC Drag Race show has unveiled a Welsh contestant who introduced herself by saying “bore da bitches!”

Series two of BBC Three’ the official RuPaul’s Drag Race UK lands on iPlayer on January 14, and it will include Tayce from Newport, who has described herself as a “sexy owl”.

Tayce, who now lives in London, has said she loves “to bring a bit of colour to the world” and has promised to show people “what Wales has to offer” on the show.

She said that she is on the show to win, and expects to “make it right to the very bitter end.”

Tayce said: “Hello, hello, hello world – it’s me Tayce. I’m from Newport south Wales, and I’m here to rock your socks off.

“Bore da bi***es! Penblwydd Hapus ya puswanas. You might need subtitles for this world. You can’t understand me. That’s your loss, what can I do, what can I say. I’m Welsh!

“I’m here, I’m queer, I’m ready to let these girls have it and show them what Wales has to offer.”


‘Day dot’ 

She added: “Where I’m from, it’s predominantly white. I was like one of the only black kids in my class, and I was always just wearing crazy looks from day dot.

“You know Newport can be a bit grey, dingy, and I just love to bring a bit of colour to the world you know. Bring some excitement!

“I’m a girl on the go. I wake up in the morning, brunch, next gig, next gig, go to the club, do a photoshoot in the morning, music video after, do another gig, go to the club again. I’m up, down, left, right, around the hill and back again. I don’t know how I do it. but I do.

“The Tayce look is very model-esque, very villainous, dark, punky, edgy, but sometimes I like to switch up.

“Look at me now, I’m like a bird of prey, or bird of paradise. I’m like a sexy owl, here to come down and peck your face away with my claws, peck, peck, peck.

“I do have a reputation in London for being late for the odd gig, but honey I will get out of that cab ready to go, heels on, hair laid, eyes beat. Get me on that stage and let the music play honey and watch me work.

“Oh I’m here to win. I expect to make it right to the very bitter end. By hook or by crook.

“The job’s a god ‘un, Bob’s your uncle, and Linda’s your aunt.”
