Who is Scarlett Harlett in Drag Race UK season 3?

Scarlett Harlett is 26 years old and has been performing in drag for the past eight years.

She has been in quite a few TV shows and films, playing extras in the movies Absolutely Fabulous and Rocketman.

Scarlett also featured on The Impossible Gameshow, where she had to go through mud and jump over obstacles, all while she was in her drag outfit.

Where is Scarlett Harlett from and who inspires her?

Scarlett Harlett is from East London, where she was born and raised. She uses her background as part of her drag act.

She said: “I’m really proud of my roots and I embrace my working class and cockney heritage in my drag. I was born and raised in East London, I am EastEnders personified!”

“I have come from nothing. I grew up on a council estate and I feel so proud to have landed myself in one of the biggest shows in the UK right now.

“I want people to know you can make a banquette out of scraps. I am doing this for the Isle of Dogs!”

Her inspirations are all women, and they include Joan Rivers, Barbara Streisand and Shirley Bassey. She’s also a big fan of comedienne Catherine Tate.

Of adoring Catherine Tate, she said: “I absolutely loved her when I was a kid. I loved her characters and humour, and I strive to capture East End humour in my drag.”
