Drag Race UK stars were evacuated from London’s Heaven nightclub on Monday afternoon after a “sick individual” made a bomb threat.
The Vivienne, Tia Kofi and Veronica Green were rehearsing for the Drag Queens of Pop tour, alongside a fourth drag queen Shania Pain, when police arrived and evacuated the premises.
Owner Jeremy Joseph said he had to walk around the venue with police officers and sniffer dogs while Charing Cross Station, Villier Street and Craven Street were evacuated.
“I’m not going to lie, it was frightening, but I can’t praise the police dog team enough, they were amazing, they have to enter the building not knowing if a threat is real or a hoax,” Joseph wrote on Twitter.
The nightclub’s owner hit out at the person behind the hoax, branding them a “sick individual”.
“The police took every precaution before re-opening the streets and I can’t thank them enough,” Jospeh added.
Earlier on Monday, Joseph shared a photo on Twitter of the four drag queens rehearsing on stage before they were all rushed from the building.
