UK "Rupaul's Drag Race" superstars The Vivienne, Tia Kofi, Veronica Green and Shania Pain were on stage rehearsing for their upcoming show "Drag Queens Of Pop" when a bomb threat forced them to leave a London club.

As reported by the NY Daily News, the incident prompted police to immediately evacuate the premises Monday afternoon.

"Police had received an anonymous tip about a 'suspicious package,'" reports the Daily News. The threat turned out to be a fake, and the show, thankfully, must go on.


"Later on Monday, 'Drag Race U.K.' season one winner The Vivienne said on her Instagram Stories that 'somebody had phoned the police possibly after seeing our Instagram knowing that we were at the venue rehearsing, and the police were absolutely amazing, they made us feel so safe,'" reports the Daily News.

"It's such a shame after lockdown and everybody dying to get back to work and back on stage, we're finally there, finally rehearsing for stuff and somebody decided to do a horrible hoax, prank," Vivienne reportedly told Pink News.
