Her Scottish heritage was only revealed halfway through the series, when she sported a bagpipe-themed costume, complete with a strong Scottish accent that could have walked straight out of the TV show Rab C Nesbitt, before revealing she hailed from the west central lowlands town of Greenock.

The moment sparked hysteria among Scottish RuPaul fans, elated to see Scotland on the world drag stage.

Talking to the Scotsman last month, Rosé admitted that, despite spending two decades in the US, her heart is “still in Scotland” adding that she saw her time in the series as a chance to “make Scotland proud”.

Although she was pipped to the crown by fellow drag act Symone at the weekend, fans are overjoyed that the self proclaimed ambassador to the colour pink will be bringing her glorious runaway looks and her hilarious trademark portrayal of Mary Queen of Scots to Glasgow this September.

Tickets for Rosé’s UK tour go on sale this evening, available to buy here.
