Mama Ru gave us not one, but two seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race UK this year as 12 drag queens sashayed onto the mainstage once again. But who will become the next Queen of Drag Race UK, and demonstrate the highest level of creativity, uniqueness, nerve, and talent? Well, we're about to find out now we're down to our three finalists.

Krystal Versace, RuPaul's youngest contestant at 19-years-old, goes up against comedy queen Kitty's Scott-Claus, and fairly new to the world of drag, Ella Vaday.

Challenged with delivering a festive jingle 'Hey Sis, It's Christmas', there will then be one final mainstage runway, too, where we're expecting the three queens to sleigh with their holiday inspired looks.

Ready, set, glow, queens! Here's how to watch RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 3 final online 100% for free in the UK, and options to stream abroad, too.
