She became the fifth queen to be eliminated on RuPaul's Drag Race on Thursday.

And Crystal spoke with MailOnline about her time on the show and its most recent episode, as she commented on scaring guest judge Geri Horner with her Weird Science runway on week four.

The innovative drag queen, 35, used an angle grinder during her performance as a dystopian mutant, which left Ginger Spice, 47, visibly uncomfortable, and Crystal claimed it was 'depressing' to see her as 'timid' and 'sanitised.'

Crystal admitted candidly of the moment: 'Oh god, It was really weird. I see Geri as a camp icon, I see her as someone who is basically a drag queen herself. 

'You know, she’s done performances coming out of giant inflatable legs, and riding on giant bananas and stuff. 

'I used to look to her as someone as a camp icon, so the fact that she has now become so sanitised, and timid is just a bit depressing.'

Unhappy: Ginger Spice, 47, was left visibly uncomfortable by Crystal's look and performance

Not mincing her words, Crystal continued: 'Basically, I think it means you should never move to the Tory heartlands because they will get you. 

'It was just really weird, I was like “Who lobotomised Geri Halliwell? What’s happened?” but you know if you can shock Ginger Spice then I think you’re doing something cool, I was really proud of myself.'

During week five, Crystal competed in a girl group challenge alongside The Vivienne and Cheryl Hole in which they wrote, recorded and choreographed a dance number to track Break Up Bye Bye.

Crystal revealed that, despite the shady behaviour shown on screen, the trio worked really well together and 'had so much fun' during the challenge, while she also claimed their 'verses were better' than Divina De Campo, Blu Hydrangea and Baga Chipz's group The Frock Destroyers.

'We tried really hard, I’m really proud of what we did,' Crystal said. 'You don’t see what little time you’ve got to write, record, choreograph and perform that song so I think what we did was really amazing, I’m really proud of it.'

It was the first challenge that The Vivienne struggled to do well in, as she forgot her words and was often out-of-sync with Crystal and Cheryl.

Of the Scouse queen's difficulties, Crystal said: 'It was surprising, but also it was kind of frustrating that the one time my success was riding on her, [but] she didn’t knock it out of the park.

'She’d done so well with everything else so far so I thought “definitely need her on my team, she can’t fail” and then when we came off stage after we performed the number she was like “I f***ed that up, I didn’t know the words I messed up” and I was like “Vivienne, how dare you!” 

'I think what you’ve seen on the show so far is only one side of The Vivienne, but we all have seen the softer side of her at other moments throughout the show. 

'She isn’t this frosty, confident b***h, she’s a really lovely, warm person. So, I think you saw last night was what we saw the rest of the time.'

In the end, Crystal had to go up against The Vivienne in the Lip Sync For Your Life, which she didn't find nerve-wracking as she was 'resigned to the fact that I was going home.'

'I didn’t think that there was anything I could do to win, and I said in untucked –even though they didn’t show it- but I said to everyone: "even if I win this lip sync I’m not going to stay, I’ll go home."

'Because [Vivienne] had done so well up to that challenge, and I had just coasted or was safe. I felt she deserved to stay more than me so I was like “it was my time, it was my time to go.”'

During untucked Crystal was seen going through emotional turmoil, with Cheryl stepping in when the others asked the former how she was feeling and talking about her love of Girl Groups instead.

Despite coming across as rude, Crystal insists that Cheryl 'was just trying to take the attention off me for a second and give me a chance to gather my thoughts.'

'How that ended up coming across was her talking about herself, and I think her intentions were really good in that moment. 

'It was frustrating just because it was emblematic of how I felt the whole time, Divina said that she had been talked over, but god I was really talked over on that show.

'That’s the other thing as well, you’ve got to push yourself to the front if you want to make it and have screen time on TV but that isn’t really my nature, so.'

Honest: Vivienne 'had done so well up to that challenge... I felt she deserved to stay more than me so I was like “it was my time, it was my time to go,

While she admits -with what she knows now about the show- she 'would have been louder and had more fun' if she could have the chance to join the show now, looking back she feels 'really proud of what I did based on what I knew.'

'I was so scared and unsure, and I didn’t trust the producers, I didn’t trust how they were going to portray me so I really held myself back and I would change that for sure if I could,' Crystal admitted.  

'The show really challenged you in ways you don’t expect. 'You know that challenges are coming, and they’re hard, but the hardest part is feeling really isolated and having no one to talk to.  

'Feeling like you’re not good enough, and not being able to figure out how to get back those feelings because you’ve got no one to support you who understands you except for the other contenders on the show. So it’s hard to process all of that while you’re there.'

Despite her hardships, Crystal did praise her fellow queens for their supportive nature, and said they 'speak to each other on Whatsapp all the time.'

During the fifth episode, the queens had a candid chat about their childhoods, and growing up gay in schools, which left many, including Divina, in tears over their traumatic past experiences.

Of speaking honestly with each other, Crystal admitted: 'That chat at the mirror, I should have expressed myself a little better in that situation but I was so worried about getting ready, and thinking about the choreography that we had to perform, and all those things so it was a hard time to have an emotional, soul-bearing chat. 

'But, yea, growing up gay is really intense and it really damages you, our society really punishes people who are different, and I think gay people have to spend their whole lives figuring how to love themselves because society told them not to, that’s a really intense thing. 

'That’s what’s so beautiful about the show, it shows people the challenges that gay people go through but also that drag can be a way of overcoming all of that, because you get to play dress up and it gives you access to all sorts of confidence.'

Pleased: One thing that Crystal was happy with was the showrunner's acceptance of her body hair: 'What was really cool was no one actually did ask me to change'

One thing that Crystal was pleased with during her time on the show, was the showrunner's acceptance of her body hair, which the drag queen keeps as a way to 'f**k with gender' stereotypes.
