Having attended the University of Nottingham, Lawrence is now 30, turning 31-years-old on September 30th.

Appearing on the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, Tia’s name is a play on “tea or coffee?”. Although many were rooting for the ‘Queen of Clapham’, Tia placed 7th on the show.

Who is Tayce?

Tayce Szura-Radix was born in Newport, Wales on May 28th 1994, making Tayce 27-years-old.

Now residing in England, Tayce is also a drag queen, featuring on the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. Ranking as a runner-up the model made it to the final and is described as ‘the lipsync assassin’ of Drag Race UK.

Tayce is not shy to the camera, having also featured on another series, Comedy Central’s Your Face or Mine in 2019.

With a combined follower count of almost 1 million, Tia and Tayce both have very glamorous Instagram pages.

Tia also has some impressive followers of her Instagram account, with American singer and actress, Ariana Grande being one of them.

Tayce’s Instagram is just as show-stopping with several modelling shots. Although Tayce often posts photos in full drag, followers often also see the stripped-down, no makeup Tayce gracing their feed.
