Swan was unmasked in the third episode of the ITV show.

The Masked Singer is now in its third week, and series two of the most bonkers show on earth isn't disappointing.

Last week, after an explosive second episode that saw six new mystery celebrities perform, we found out that Mel B was behind Seahorse's mask.

Tonight saw the second performances from Swan, Robin, Dragon, Sausage and Badger - and one famous face was eliminated after a judge and audience vote.

Following a dramatic face off between Sausage and Swan, who both received the least amount of audience votes, Swan was unmasked after being chosen by the judges.

And it turned out it was Martine McCutcheon - leaving viewers stunned.

One person wrote: "How the heck did I not know that was martine mccutcheon, it’s so annoying how obvs the clues are when the celeb is revealed. Martine can sing tho blimey!"

Another added: "Great reveal on #TheMaskedSinger tonight - had no idea it was Martine McCutcheon!"

Jonathan Ross guessed correctly, due to her hints referring to a Prime Minister and President, which he correctly guessed was a nod to her role in Love Actually.

Speaking about her decision to go on the show, she said: "I just thought it would be so lovely to just come up and have fun."

Find out what Martine's hints were here.

The Masked Singer is now in its third week, with the first episode airing on Boxing Day 2020 and the second on January 2 2021.

Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan are all on the guessing panel for this series, with Joel Dommett returning to host.

Speaking before the series aired, Joel said: "I’m really excited for this year because I think now people understand what it is and understand that we’re not taking it seriously, I think it’s going to be great. Last year all my tweets at the start were ‘what IS this?!’ And five minutes later those turned to ‘Oh my god I’m addicted!’ comments."
