DRAG race favorite Cheryl Hole has spoken out to the vile trolls who denounced her appearance on Celebrity MasterChef.
The 29-year-old British BBC star used her social media pages to crack down on the keyboard bullies, who wanted everything from her name to her looks.
One raged cruelly: “It’s outrageous, what was the BBC thinking?”
Drag race star Cheryl – real name Luke Underwood – wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, “People can keep berating me and comparing my work to ‘woman face,’ but at the end of the day, that’s all.” This is attributed to expressing the hate directed against our community and using my platform.
“And you agreed with everyone.”
She added: “Please enjoy tonight’s episode.
“Remember, it’s a light-hearted entertainment cooking show.
“All I do is use a couple of pots and pans and an oven. See you all on the other side.”
Cheryl – who is best known for impersonating the Girl’s Aloud singer of the same name – has continued to find success with an estimated net worth of more than £1million.
She previously shared how her role on Celebrity MasterChef has helped increase LGBTQ+ representation.
The drag artist told the BBC how being on the show allowed the community to “make our voices and stories heard and show that we have nothing to fear”.
She added, “I mean, we’re at a time where I feel like the movement is a little bit on the decline and there’s more hate crime.”
Last night the show was embroiled in a feud – which Cheryl was not involved in.
Rudimentary star DJ Locksmith – real name Leon Rolle – claimed he was useless in the kitchen and only watched his wife cook for practice.
But in the end he really impressed judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace when he cooked first the duck and then the steak to perfection.
But not everyone at home is convinced he’s such a newbie, with one viewer commenting, “Don’t cook much…b&*locks.”
Meanwhile, Cheryl’s recent TV appearances follow her appearances in Christmas commercials, Towie and various web series including Netflix’s ‘I like to Watch UK’
In July 2020, Cheryl launched her own podcast called Girl Group Gossip, which adds a new co-host and special guest each week.
In November 2021, the drag star was rumored to be entering the jungle when reports surfaced that I’m A Celeb bosses were looking to cast their first drag queen.
Drag Queen star Cheryl is engaged to her fiancé Haydn.
According to his Twitter page, Hadyn works as Cheryl’s tour manager and PA.
He also runs his own Twitch account where he posts gaming videos.
