DeDeLicious Biography – DeDeLicious Wiki
DeDeLicious is a drag artist and contestant on the fifth series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK on BBC Three. The drag queen, who uses the pronouns she/her in drag and he/him out of drag, is from Tunbridge Wells in Kent. She describes her drag as “polished, ridiculous, gargantuan, stupid and b@@bs”.
Speaking about how long she has been doing drag, DeDeLicious told the BBC: “I may only be twenty, but I’ve been evolving for a while! I’ve been a fully-fledged professional drag queen for about a year and a half, but I’ve been practising since I was sixteen.
“At first, I started playing with makeup in my bedroom, and experimenting with padding as I learned how to shape my body. And for the past few years I’ve really honed my drag craft by learning to sew and create my own outfits. As Dede, I now have unshakeable confidence but I remember my first performance was chaotic. I snapped both of my high heels and I had to do the whole number on my tippy toes!”
In a typical DeDeLicious show, “You can’t keep your eyes off me. I like to be camp and stupid. I’m all about the facial expressions and jumping around. I want to be up in the crowd dancing and having a great time! I’ve done gigs in LA, Ibiza and the iconic London Palladium. I just can’t get enough. The stage is exactly where I belong.,” she said.
DeDeLicious was born on July 17, 2002. She is 20 years old as of 2023. She hails from Royal Tunbridge Wells, England.
