Sheila Simmonds – #Busylady

The UK talent scene is a burst with a mix of talent, well some of you might recognize the incredibly talented Sheila Simmonds from Britain’s Got Talent but there is so much more to her than meets the eye. A Bingo caller, singer, roller skater, and all-round lovely and funny lady! We managed to stop this #Busylady to have a little chat with us.

DA: How has your first Dragworld weekend been? 

Sheila Simmonds: Well I’ve only been here the one day and it’s just been fantastic. I’ve done a meet and greet so I’ve met some of the fans. I’ve been skating around on my roller skates which has been a challenge but you know me, I like a challenge. It’s just been wonderful. I think, what a great place. Everyone is celebrating drag and just being who they are and I think that’s just amazing. 

DA: It’s the 3rd year and it’s just got bigger and better over the years. 

SS: And you know us queens, we like things to get bigger. 

DA: Absolutely, you were recently on Britain’s Got Talent. How was that experience for you? 

SS: That was so great, it was fun, it was lovely. To get to perform at the palladium. I wouldn’t do it again. I think once you’ve done something, you should move on to the next thing. I had a great time, they were lovely. I got treated very well and I got a load of new followers so yeah the experience was great. 

DA: Your performance was well received, such a shame you didn’t get through to the live shows. 

SS: I so wanted to because I had planned to come out of a big disco ball in these roller skates. It was going to be a pink disco ball with blue lining and there’s dancers all around. It would have been camp. 

DA: Finally, a little fun question to pick from the hat… describe yourself in 3 words.

DragAdventures was born from the passion and the love for the art of drag. It's fueled by the combined chaotic forces and wanderlust of Kirsty and Sparkles, two European girls that reunite their powers to see as many of their favorite performers as possible and wanted to give all these amazing people a platform to showcase their talent.
