Freddie Mercury - Former Drag Queen Buys Freddie Mercury's Car

A Ukrainian showman, who once represented the Ukraine at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, has snapped up Freddie Mercury's Rolls-Royce at auction.

Andrey Danilko, who performed as drag queen Verka Serduchka, paid over $118,000 (£74,600) for the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow '74 at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, England.

Danilko - who, as Serduchka, finished second at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest - is planning to donate the car to a Queen museum.

Ironically, Mercury never actually drove the car because he didn't have a licence.
