Three stars of RuPaul's Drag Race UK are in talks to represent the country at the next Eurovision Song Contest after this year's nul points flop.
The UK was left bottom of the score board at the 2021 event last month after James Newman failed to earn himself a single point throughout the night.
The race is on for a 2022 candidate to restore the country's battered pride.
Now Baga Chipz, Divina de Campo and Blu Hydrangea could be bringing their group, The Frock Destroyers, to the music event, which sees European countries battle one another to take the crown.

The group was formed during the reality show a couple of years ago and Baga Chipz has revealed there have been serious conversations about the trio representing the UK when the competition heads to Italy in 2022.
Baga Chipz told the Daily Star : "There have been conversations and meetings. I don't want to say too much. But it is on the cards. Put it this way, it's not impossible that it could happen."
The drag queen is convinced they'd get "millions" of votes if they represented the UK.
"We wouldn't get nil points! We'd bring the camp. Drag Race is a worldwide phenomenon. It's watched everywhere."
"So all those millions of people would vote for us," Baga Chipz added.
Whilst The Frock Destroyers are one drag act being considered to represent the UK, the United Kingdolls – also formed on the show and made up of Bimini, Laurence Chaney, A’Whora and Tayce – are also a fan favourite for Eurovision.

Even this year's entry James has backed the possibility of them representing the UK.
"That would be absolutely amazing. I think they would smash it. That would be really fun – I’d love to write a song for them," he told Metro.co.uk.
"It’s such a good opportunity for young artist to get a huge platform. There’s so many people who it could be and I definitely want to get involved in that as well."

A petition, which calls for either drag group to represent the UK, has amassed over 14,000 signatures so far.
"Drag has been, and is a big part of British culture."
"They were stars of a BBC show, they reached top 3 in the iTunes charts, top 10 of the radio charts and have people all across Europe wanting to see them represent us. Let’s not have a repeat of 2021," it reads.
