RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs The World star Lemon may have controversially sashayed away from the competition in episode one, but the Canadian queen is ensuring that her impact continues to be felt online throughout the show’s run.

After episode three saw the remaining queens throw shade at each other in the workroom for the reading challenge (with Jujubee crowned the winner), Lemon wasted no time in sharing her own hilariously shady one-liners on Twitter.

“Somebody told me the library was open,” wrote the drag star as she shared a video of herself deliver killer put-downs for each queen – and similtaneously letting fans know exactly what they’re missing out on after her early exit.

Lemon, you’re one shady lady…

Lemon on Baga Chipz

“Baga Chipz: You call yourself the People’s Princess – and I agree! Because this is a car crash.”

Lemon on Jujubee

“Jujubee, you’re one of my favourite Drag Race girls ever. I think third favourite, just like Ru.”

Lemon on Pangina Heals

“Pangina Heals, I actually think you have a really fierce walk. It’s very New York: it’s giving pigeon.”

Lemon on Cheryl Hole

“Cheryl Hole, I know you’re kind of dumb, but RuPaul said ‘add rhinestones’, not ‘gain nine stone’.”

Lemon on Janey Jacké 

“Janey Jacké… there’s nothing worse than meeting someone you thought you were gonna like.”

Lemon on Blu Hydrangea

“Blu Hydrangea, I love that you’re named after a colour, but I’ve seen you dance. Shouldn’t it be painfully white Hydrangea?”

Lemon on Mo Heart

“Mo Heart actually autocorrects to No Heart, and I think that says it all.”

Lemon on Jimbo

“Jimbo, you know, my parents told me if I don’t have anything nice to say, I shouldn’t say anything at all. But it’s weird you never got that lesson, considering you’re their age.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs The World continues on BBC Three and the BBC iPlayer next Tuesday from 9pm.
