- 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."
