The Tree was revealed to be footballing legend Teddy Sheringham.

The Masked Singer returned for its third week tonight, and the most bonkers show on TV did not disappoint.

The Monster, Fox, Tree, Octopus, and Daisy all performed for the live studio audience and judges Ken Jeong, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Rita Ora.

At the end of the episode, it was Octopus and and Tree who battled it out in the sing-off - and the judges opted to send Tree home.

And their guess that Tree is a footballer was right - it was former England player Teddy Sheringham.

Viewers took to Twitter to express their shock, with one writing: "OH MY GOD, NO WAY".

Another added: "I was so 100 per cent convinced I knew. I did not. #tree #maskedsinger".

The Labour politician, who served under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, said: "I didn’t tell my kids, only my wife as we were sworn to silence. I texted my children [Emma, Jamie and Oliver] on Sunday saying they had to watch.

"My mother-in-law asked me whether I was in the audience."
