RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs The World's Mo Heart says she is "never" returning to the Drag Race franchise as she doesn't have "anything else to prove". 

The US queen - formerly known as Monique Heart - finds herself in the final four ahead of the series finale, alongside the UK queens Baga Chipz and Blu Hydrangea, as well as fellow American, Jujubee. 

Speaking to Tia Kofi and Attitude for Tea Time, in association with Taimi, the LGBTQ dating, and social network app, Mo also discusses the reaction to opening up about her experiences with 'conversion' therapy. 

Asked if she would ever reappear on the show, Mo says: "Never! But I said that the last time, OK."

Continuing, she says "I'm officially good. I feel like I've done it. I feel like my runways killed all of these hoes. Yeah, I don't have anything else to prove.

"I'm good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good."

Elsewhere in the interview Mo also says it is "completely different" how Drag Race in the UK is produced to the US. Mo originally competed in Drag Race's tenth season as well as All Stars 4.

Discussing the differences she recounts speaking to one executive about it. "They said, 'Well, we noticed that you really didn't warm up to us in the beginning and feel safe to trust', because I was like, 'baby, I can't trust y'all cause things work different', you know what I mean?" Mo tells Attitude

"Not to say that the people in the US are bad, it's just what works in the US doesn't work over here, you know what I mean? They're two different markets but I kind of like that it's a little nicer over here, It’s a lot nicer," she adds.

Mo may have taken a liking to the British ways of solving every problem with tea concluding, "a spot of tea, just makes everything better."

The series finale of RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs The World will be on BBC Three and Player from 9 pm on Tuesday 8 March.
