He faced off against Snoop Dogg for Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, Gordon Ramsay for Masterchef Junior, Alec Baldwin for Match Game, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn for Project Runway, and also W Kamau Bell for United Shades of America with W Kamau Bell.

The Drag Race royalty took to Twitter to thank everyone for their support. RuPaul said: ‘Thank you Television Academy so much – you make this queen so proud.

‘I want to thank all of the cast and crew of RuPaul’s Drag Race and my family at World of Wonder. And the gorgeous people at VH1,’ he said.
