Ella Vaday teased the “utter carnage” fans can expect from her upcoming Christmas tour with Kitty Scott-Claus and why she wants to start “breaking away from Drag Race” as she explores new opportunities.
The beloved queen was an instant fan favourite on the UK edition’s third season of the show, ultimately finishing as a runner-up and becoming one of the few contestants to win four challenges in a single season as she did so.
Speaking to GAY TIMES on the green carpet of GAY TIMES Honours sponsored by Meta Quest exactly a year since the finale aired on BBC Three, Ella says the last 12 months have been “non-stop” in the best way possible. “It’s literally been so incredible and like no other year, as you can imagine,” she adds. “I’ve toured Australia, I’ve been to Europe, I’ve toured every city in the country, as well as Scotland, Ireland and Wales.” The ‘beast from Dagenham East’ explains that she has done “all the things I could have ever hoped to do” and feels her time on the show is “just the beginning” as her future is about focusing on the things she wants to achieve.
One of these things will be touring the UK and Ireland with Kitty as part of their ‘Christmas Cracker’ tour. Kicking off in Glasgow on 11 December, the duo will visit a number of cities including Manchester, Cardiff and Dublin before climaxing together in London. “So you’ve just got me and Kitty having a riot around the country, in a nutshell,” Ella teases of what we have to look forward to. “Me and Kitty are best mates, we talk every single day.
