RuPaul's Drag Race season 12 may have only witnessed two queens sashay away from the work room so far, but the eliminations are already causing controversy.

Last week's episode saw larger-than-life Rock M. Sakura sent packing after she failed to impress the judges in the design challenge and lost out in the lipsync to Brita.

It was a decision that ruffled feathers among viewers at home, and it seems the remaining queens are also unhappy about the bottom two.

A preview of episode five, set to air in the US on Friday and in the UK on Saturday, shows the contestants' reaction to Rocks' departure, and Jackie Cox is among those to voice her disappointment.

“When Rock turned the corner and we could hear her crying, my heart broke,” a visibly emotional Jackie says.

The queens don't seem in any doubt about which queen should have been sent home, as they begin to critique Aiden Zhane for her runway looks, but Zhane herself remains defiant.

"The one thing [the judges] keep telling me is that I do have that uniqueness about me, and I just need to bring that to the table, she says.

Meanwhile, Ru is on hand to introduce this week's maxi-challenge, an acting tasked based on hit medical drama Grey's Anatomy, aptly named Gay's Anantomy.

RuPaul's Drag Race season 12 continues Friday 27 March on VH1 in the US and will be available to stream Netflix from Saturday 28 March in the UK.
