Years before Kristian Seeber, 41, rose to fame during last year’s season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the star enjoyed a taste of life in the limelight thanks to her romance with host Graham Norton .

The drag queen, who is best known as Tina Burner, dated the popular Irish presenter for several months in 2005, before ending in “disaster”.

Graham – a guest judge on the UK version of RuPaul’s Drag Race – previously reiterated their brief but serious romance in his 2014 autobiography, The Life and Love of a Devil .

The talk show host explained how he and Kristian first met at Barracuda, a gay bar in New York, and the host quickly felt a “special spark”.

Looking back on their time together – including their brief time together – Graham concluded that he was “not a great material boyfriend”.

“The experiment lasted about six months, and it was a disaster,” the presenter wrote, reflecting on their time together in London.

“I realize that even to a perfect stranger, the results will be obvious. But when you’re in the middle of something and you’re hungry for it to succeed, you’ll try anything. “

Kristian went on to call it a breakup with Graham “over lunch in an empty restaurant” – a breakup that hit the TV star hard and left him heartbroken.

“The madness is over,” he recalls in his book.

“But this time there was no shouting or past, just some heavy, slow tears falling over lunch in an empty restaurant.

“I walked home, looking for some consolation that a man in his forties could still feel the same pain.”

The popular presenter is said to be currently single

Last year, Kristian established herself as a household name by finishing seventh in the 13th series of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

During his time on the show, his fellow queens asked him about his romance with Graham.

“I like how you say fling, I’m in a relationship,” replied Kristian when one of his rivals accidentally called his affair a ‘fling’.

“Graham is so famous, he’s on a level where your life is like being put on a pedestal.

He added: “He’s a great guy and that never happened to him. It’s the best thing.”

After breaking up with Kristian, Graham continued to date Trevor Patterson for two years until they split in 2013, and more recently, split with last known partner Andrew Smith in 2015.
