Who else was unmasked on The Masked Singer UK?

- Patsy Palmer (Butterfly)

Eastenders star Patsy Palmer was first to be booted off in the competition. She said: “I love singing in general (not that I’m any good) but it's an extremely uplifting thing to do.“I love music, it's a total passion of mine (I DJ) so I’m constantly playing music.

- Alan Johnson (Pharaoh)

The second celebrity was former Home Secretary Alan Johnson. He later spoke about the difficulties of keeping his appearance a secret. He said: "The show is so extraordinary it’s almost perverse to keep mute about it.”

- Justin Hawkins (Chameleon)

The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins shocked us all when he was unveiled as Chameleon.

He said: “I wanted to take part in something that would be slightly surreal, and the secrecy made it a very exciting. Like having an extra-musical affair.

“I was reluctant to commit to the recordings because I was supposed to be best man at a wedding in Australia, but it was too good to turn down. Haha!”

- Teddy Sheringham (Tree)

Footballer Teddy Sheringham said of his decision to come on board: "I saw the show that aired in the States and thought I'd love to do that for my kids."

- Skin (Duck)

Singer Skin said of her time on the competition: "It was really fun jumping into a completely different character and using it to portray a sillier side of myself that the public rarely get to see, but it was quite difficult to sing in so that held me back a little!"

- Jake Shears (Unicorn)

Jake was correctly predicted by many of the judges to be Unicorn, and he said of keeping it a secret: "It was hard at first, because friends could tell I was excited about something but I couldn’t tell them which made them crazy, so I just had to learn to pretend like there was absolutely nothing going on!"

- Denise Van Outen (Fox)

Loose Women star Denise didn't even tell her kids what she was up to, and later said: "I never told a soul I was doing the show. My family, Eddie and Betsy, had no idea. It was fun keeping it to myself."

- CeeLo Green (Monster)

US star CeeLo claimed he hadn't found it challenging keeping his appearance a secret.

He said: "No not necessarily, simply because I have a small group of people I live and work with.

"We are all essentially a part of staff and we hold each other accountable so therefore a secret is safe with us."
