During the finale, which took place for the first time on 18 March 7th, finalist Tayce got into conversation with RuPaul and Michelle Visage that his father was in Wham!

Tayce Szura-Radix, 26, appears as drag queen Tayce and is of Welsh Afro-Caribbean descent. She currently resides in London after growing up in Newport, Wales

Tayce announced that her parents had been together for 20 years before discussing her father’s music career

The drag queen said, “My dad was in Wham and played bass guitar in Wham He has always been one of my biggest supporters”

Tayce’s father – Roger Radix – father appeared on Wham! ‘s first album and performed with the band on their tracks “Bad Boys” and “Wham Rap!”

He performed alongside the group on Top Of The Pops in 1982 and played bass on ‘Young Guns (Go For It!)’

Roger was later replaced by Deon Estus, who became a full-time member of the band alongside George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley

“My first single that I bought on a physical CD was Moulin Rouge – ‘Lady Marmalade’,” continued Tayce, “Lil Kim, Christina and I remember just walking into my dad’s work office and just being like, ‘Dad, listen to this!’

“I was always prancing around in wigs, they let go of me and just let me be myself, and I was just always so blessed and privileged

“I have so many friends who have literally been kicked out for being gay and not talking to their family at all and so estranged This is something that I take really seriously and that I am so proud of “
