Nicola Coughlan shared an epic ode to RuPaul’s Drag Race UK legend Bimini – with a Shakespearean twist.

Because why not?

Fans and famous faces have been loving Bimini Bon Boulash’s epic stint on the UK version of the show, with the United Kingdolls’ UK Hun hit soaring up the charts after a recent challenge.

Bridgerton favourite Nicola couldn’t help herself, and also got in on the action.

Taking to Twitter, the 34-year-old blessed us all with a crossover video that we didn’t know we needed.

‘In honour of @dragraceukbbc Day may I present my ode to @biminibabes UK Hun, but as a dramatic monologue in the style of the Royal Shakespeare Company.’

Right on cue, fans couldn’t get enough of the short video, begging her to recreate other scenes and land a spot on the judging panel.

‘That was…. a work of art,’ a follower penned.

‘This starts off wayyy too strong omg can a little video be nominated for an Oscar please? This is it [sic],’ another suggested.

As one added: ‘You need to be a guest judge on  #DragRaceUK. @bbcthree make it happen.’

The official RPDR UK account was thrilled by the clip, sliding into the comments below to insist: ‘Oi @BBCOne you need to give this a primetime drama spot asap.’

Nicola also got praise from Bimini, who loved the dramatic retelling.

Quoting her post, they said: ‘This is so good.’

Petition to get the Derry Girls legend a guest spot on the judging panel next season, anyone?

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK continues on Friday, at 7pm, on BBC iPlayer.
