DRAG RACE UK: Who is Tayce and where is she from?

Who tayce

Everything you need to know about Tayce ahead of the start of Drag Race UK on BBC 3.

How old is Tayce?

She is 26.

Can you tell us a bit more about where Tayce is from?

I’m from the Welsh lands of Newport. Newport can be a bit grey, dingy and so I just love to bring a bit of colour to the world.

Since I was born, I have been prancing around in little skirts and wigs. I’ve always been full of life and energy. I’ve always got a smile on my face and I have been wearing crazy looks from day dot.

Why Drag Race UK?

I am doing this for Wales, for my parents and my family. I’m doing it for all those little buggers who have looked at me and thought I was an absolute freak. I’m doing it for myself. I’m doing it for Gavin and Stacey!

Honestly, I can’t believe I’m here right now. I’m here, I’m queer, I’m here to let these girls have it and show them what Wales has to offer. The job’s a good un, Bob’s your uncle, Linda’s your aunt.

How would you describe your drag look?

The Tayce look is very ‘model-esque’, very villainess, very street fighter. I’m dark and edgy. Sometimes I like to switch it up, look at me now… I’m like a bird of prey, or a bird of paradise, a sexy owl.

What is a Tayce show like?

You don’t know what you’re going to get!

I love powerful Femme Fatales and divas. I was always dancing to Beyoncé, Ciara and J.Lo growing up. They made me feel powerful and now, and I love to give the power back to people when I’m on stage. It’s always very high energy. I dance the house down. I live for it. So, you’re definitely leaving hot and sweaty. I love a band with drums and electric guitar. I am obsessed with music. My dad was the bass guitarist in Wham way back in the day, so I was always around music.

I do have a bit of a reputation for being late to the odd gig, but, honey, when I get out of that cab I come with heels on and eyes beat. Get me on that stage with the music on and watch me work!

What is a day like in the life of Tayce?

Oh, it’s non-stop. I’m very energetic and I get bored of things really quick. It’s the Gemini in me. I can’t stay in one place to long. I am a girl on the go. I’ve been properly performing for about three years now, so the gigs are steady. I could do about 4, 5 days in a week. I’m up, down, left, right, around the hill and back again. I don’t know how I do it, but I do!

How are you going to slay?

I think my looks mixed with my personality. I am a larger than life character that always looks stunning. You can expect long hair, some of the longest hair in the game. I am the life of the party!

What are you nervous about for the competition?

Worried, me? Never! Oh, I’m here to win. I expect to make it right to the very bitter end, by hook or by crook.

Mr. Man

That said, I don’t think a design challenge will go down well for me, or anything that involves a sewing machine as ’ve never laid a finger on one before. I’ve watched a few YouTube sewing videos, but have I sat there and done it? No! Should I have? Yes!

I am terrified of Snatch Game. I get stressed just thinking about it. I think I know what I’m going to do, but…
