What will Lawrence Chaney’s digital series be about?
As well as taking home the humble title of winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season two, Lawrence will be jetting off soon to Hollywood to film her digital series.
Lawrence, 24, consistently impressed judges RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr throughout the 10 week-long series even earned three RuPeter badges to her name.
It was no surprise when she was crowned the winner of the second series and fans are eagerly awaiting to find out what she will do next.
As part of taking home the crown and sceptre, Lawrence won an all-expenses-paid trip to Hollywood to create her own digital series with the producers of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk and other press, Lawrence revealed there were no concrete plans for her digital series yet, but she had plenty of ideas.
Lawrence said: “I have thought about loads of ideas and it all kind of revolves around me hosting because you want to use the location of being in Hollywood and not just in a studio, you want to make use of the Hollywood sign being in the background and things so I’ve had ideas.”
“I definitely want to move into my hosting kind of side of things with me being the next coming of Lorraine Kelly.
“I have some ideas of interviewing people known on the Queer scene and kind of getting to know them a bit more in-depth than we know of them.
“You know, people who are viral on TiK ToK who are Queer, we don’t know anything about them so it would be interesting dynamic, to find out why they did what they did, do what they do.
“Famous people in Queer nightlife, maybe that is is a cool avenue to go down but again I have got people to bounce these ideas off of, so one day we will get to one solidified idea eventually.”
Lawrence seriously impressed the judges and guest judge Lorraine Kelly in episode four when she presented a segment of Morning Glory.
Lorraine even joked Lawrence could be her next co-host, so it is no surprise Lawrence is attracted to hosting and presenting duties.
Shortly after the episode aired, a viewer reached out to the presenter via social media and said they were starting a petition to get Lawrence Chaney on her breakfast show.
One fan tweeted: “Starting a petition for @ShadyLawrence to be a permanent co-host with @reallorraine on morning telly #DragRaceUK.”
Lorraine shared the post with her 628,100 followers and gave her a stamp of approval.
“Yep – sound good to me!” she replied.
The pair appear to have struck up a friendship, with Lorraine coming to Lawrence’s defence after Lawrence shared she had received abuse online.
Lorraine tweeted: “My dearest, gorgeous, hugely talented, funny, charismatic, adorable @ShadyLawrence listen to your Aunty Lorraine and ignore the vile trolls.
“Mute them so they rant into an empty room and be glad you are not full of hate and bile like them. You are a goddess and bring us joy xxx”
Lawrence replied: “Love you Aunty Lorraine!!!”

When asked about appearing on any other reality tv shows, Lawrence told Express.co.uk and other press it was not off the table.
She said: “I love reality TV, I love TV that makes you think, I love TV that makes you scared, I love TV that makes you laugh and I think because I’m interested in such a wide range of entertainment I would absolutely go on [reality tv], as long as it is not Dancing on Ice because I don’t dance and definitely not on the ice.
She added: “I want to be a regular face on TV. I think the interesting thing I have discovered about myself is I am funny, I have the ability to be funny but I can also tell a genuine story, it’s not like everything I say is a joke, there is layers to it.”
When is Lawrence Chaney’s digital series out?
Unfortunately, at the moment there has been no news regarding the official release date of Lawrence Chaney’s digital series.
Filming on the series is not believed to have begun and is not likely to start anytime soon as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Series one winner, The Vivienne’s digital series premiered in April 2020, five months after she was crowned the winner, so fans can expect to see Lawrence’s series in August 2021 at the earliest potentially.
