She added: "She's amazing."

Explaining more about the design she said: "It came in two parts.

"Liquorice made this one [pointing to the long train version] and there was also a shorter one, another shorter one that came to the knee.

"The smaller one is never seen in the shot but it was so Sam could get closer to me so we could both fit in the frame."

Liquorice previously told the Big Issue North of their stunning costume designs.

They said: “It stands out in a club and pictures because everyone’s so colourful and vibrant.

"I originally just wanted to be an arty club kid but it evolved into drag.

“More time goes into making everything than people expect – an outfit can take two months. When I first went out in a dress, it wasn’t this big liberating moment. I felt awkward and had to slowly chip away at it.”
