Katie Price breaks silence as RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s Bimini impersonates her
RuPaul's Drag Race UK Queen Bimini Bon Boulash won viewers’ hearts with her spot-on impression of Katie Price – and it even got the attention of the former glamour model.
Thursday night’s episode of the BBC Three show had the queens partake in the fan-favourite Snatch Game, where the contestants impersonated a celebrity or influential person of their choice.
And it seems Katie was just as impressed, as a rep for the star told Metro.co.uk: "Katie is delighted to be an inspiration to Bimini’s impersonation of her and wishes her all the best."
Bimini, real name Tommy Hibbitts, perfected her Katie look and impersonation, leaving host RuPaul, judge Michelle Visage and guest contestant Gemma Collins crying with laughter.
Clearly having done her research, the queen put her own spin on the mother-of-five’s famous This Morning interview, in which she discussed her horse being killed and being held up at gunpoint.
“My implants got held in gunpoint in South Africa,” Bimini told RuPaul after bringing up her "hectic year".
“I walked in the stables and caught my horse cheating on me again, so I didn’t have any time to write anything.”

Bimini was referencing when Katie discovered her ex-husband Kieran Hayler was sleeping with her best friend in the stables of her home in 2014.
The 42-year-old, four years later, also opened up about her terrifying carjacking experience while with her children in South Africa.
Katie revealed she was held at gunpoint when the family had stopped at the roadside as her son Junior – who she shares with Peter Andre – needed the loo.

Although the star was a fan of the segment, a rep told The Sun that it was just a "cameo of Jordan’s past".
“While very funny and Katie is flattered to be Bimini’s inspiration, this is very much a cameo of Jordan’s past – not the Katie she is today – who has less filler and is more a domestic goddess than tiara wearing,” the rep explained.
