The Masked Singer UK returned for its semi-final tonight, and two new celebs have been unmasked...

The Masked Singer is now in its penultimate week, meaning we have just seven days left to work out which celebs are behind each mask.

So far, we have had Alien (Sophie Ellis-Bextor), Seahorse (Mel B), Swan (Martine McCutcheon), Grandfather Clock (Glenn Hoddle), Bush Baby (John Thomson), Viking (Morten Harket), and Blob (Lenny Henry) be unmasked - and tonight saw another double elimination.

The first singer to be revealed was Dragon, who received the lowest number of audience votes.

After a dramatic unmasking, it turned out it was Sue Perkins!

Viewers were shocked by the revelation, with one writing: "I was not expecting dragon to be Sue Perkins what a cracking voice she has!"

Another added: "I didn't see that coming at all! Always fiery, but i never saw you as a dragon. You were fab, congrats".

Speaking after her elimination, Sue said that she was previously "terrified of singing in public", and added that she hoped to sing again without the Dragon mask.

Later on in the show, there was another unmasking - and Harlequin was revealed to be Gabrielle!

Many of the judges and viewers guessed correctly, and Gabrielle was the bookies' favourite to be behind the mask.

Speaking about her experience on the show, she said: "I'm a very nervous performance, and I thought doing this would take me out of my comfort zone."

The Masked Singer concludes next week, with the remaining three contestants battling it out to be crowned winner of the wildest show on earth.
