RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Tayce Szura-Radix has criticised the episode of Celebrity Gogglebox she partook in back in September of last year. The star explained that she didn’t agree with the ‘Black to Front’ concept the show opted for as part of a wider project across Channel 4, in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk.
Tayce, 28, recently attended the launch of ABSOLUT’S Born to Mix fashion collaboration in London two weeks ago, where she teamed up with celebrity favourite London designer, Chet Lo, and the team from the next gen collection Institute of Digital Fashion for a cutting-edge runway show.
Before Tayce took to the catwalk, however, she opened up about her time on Celebrity Gogglebox.
Last year, Celebrity Gogglebox announced a brand new roster for its Black to Front episode, which included stars such as model Jourdan Dunn, EastEnders legend Rudolph Walker and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK stars Tayce and Tia Kofi.
The episode came as part of Channel 4’s wider Black to Front day of programming, which aimed to amplify “black talent, voices and stories”, as part of an “ongoing commitment to improve Black representation on- and off-screen”.
However, Tayce had her own take on the Black to Front episode, as she spoke about the importance of consistent inclusivity.
“It was an appreciation of POC culture and it was just amazing to see everything in one section,” she began.
“If I’m being a bit controversial, though, I don’t really care about it that much because I think everything should just be spread around everywhere every single day.
“There should not be a day for white people, a day for black people, a day for Asian people.
“It should be all integrated, all multicultural. That’s how it should be. Day dot. AM. PM.”
When asked if she meant that she believed in television being inclusive all the time, rather than inclusivity being reserved for allocated spaces, she confirmed: “Yeah! It’s that simple.
“Why are there all these rules and regulations about how one thing should be on TV and one thing shouldn’t be on TV?
“It should just be just an iPod on shuffle!”

When asked about what it was like to do the programme with her friend Tia Kofi, Tayce revealed she’d had a great time.
“We watched some great sh*t it was gorgeous,” she laughed.
Tayce is a Welsh drag queen and model from Newport, Wales.
She is best known for competing in the second series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, where she was placed as a runner-up.
Tayce’s father is Roger Radix, a former bass guitarist for Wham!.
Tayce appeared to have a fabulous night at the launch of ABSOLUT’S Born to Mix fashion collaboration in BOXPARK Shoreditch three weeks ago.
Speaking about the fashion partnership she said: “The collaboration has been such a fun experience for me personally because I love the passion and energy of everyone I’m working with and everyone I’m working with I’m actually a fan of.
“I’m just so happy to be here right now today!”
Celebrity Gogglebox airs today at 9pm on Channel 4.
