RuPaul's Drag Race UK is delivering possibly the most entertaining entry in the franchise since All Stars 2, and the show marked another milestone this weekend after scoring a first UK Top 10 hit.
Challenge winners Baga Chipz, Divina de Campo and Blu Hydrangea - aka 'The Frock Destroyers' - made British chart herstory on Sunday night (3 November) after their show-stopping version of 'Break Up (Bye Bye)' entered the Big UK Top 40 chart at Number 10.
It's a *huge* New Entry from @dragraceukbbc's Frock Destroyers! They're straight in at Number 10 on the UK's biggest chart show 🔥

The cast of @dragraceukbbc could be sashaying into the Official Chart following ep 5’s Girl Group Battle.

The feat makes the queens the first drag group to score a UK chart hit, and the MNEK-produced track is also currently on course to hit the Top 20 on the Official UK Singles Chart when the final tally is revealed this Friday (8 November).
Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall, who appeared as a guest judge on last week's episode episode of Drag Race UK, showed she was still stanning the Frock Destroyers as she celebrated their chart success on Instagram, writing: "AMAZING".
