RuPaul's Drag Race UK series 5, episode 8 spoilers follow.

RuPaul's Drag Race UK has eliminated Kate Butch following Makeover Week.

This means DeDeLicious, Ginger Johnson, Michael Marouli and Tomara Thomas have become the top four of the season and will move on to next week's semi-final.

Thursday's (November 16) episode saw the Buxton queen land in the bottom two Lip Sync following the annual makeover challenge.

This week, the queens got an inspiring visit from volunteers from the UK’s oldest LGBTQ+ helpline to transform them into members of their drag families.

While Michael Marouli wowed the judges with her makeover, Kate Butch and DeDeLicious fell short of creating drag family resemblances in the eyes of judges RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and designer Daphne Guinness.

The two queens had to lip sync for their lives to 'This Hell' by Rina Sawayama, and unfortunately, Kate was told to sashay away by RuPaul.

"You can't fire me, I quit," Kate hilariously told RuPaul, before admitting: "F**k, too slow!"

In the Werk Room, the queen spoke more seriously about her time on the show: "I'm gutted to be eliminated!

"I've loved getting to know all of the queens. They have been so encouraging, helpful. I've loved every second."

Next week, the top four queens have the dreaded task of making RuPaul laugh in the notorious roast challenge, this time with a twist inspired by the BBC's reboot of Gladiators.

Alan Carr will be on hand to mentor the queens on their comedy roasting, before joining RuPaul, Michelle Visage and special guest Aisling Bea on the judging panel for the big performance.
