The ITV show is now in its sixth week, and we have so far seen six celebs unmasked - Alien (Sophie Ellis-Bextor), Seahorse (Mel B), Swan (Martine McCutcheon), Grandfather Clock (Glenn Hoddle), and Bush Baby (John Thomson).

Tonight, all the remaining contestants performed on the same night - with Sausage, Dragon, Viking, Blob, Harlequin, Badger, and Robin all performing their fourth songs.

And - for the first time in the series - it was a double elimination, with Viking and Blob being eliminated at the end of the episode.

After a dramatic unmasking, Viking was revealed as Morten Harket, lead singer of a-ha.

Speaking about singing his own song on Saturday's show, Morten told Heart Breakfast's Jamie and Amanda: "It was the first time they'd done it, they thought it would be so fresh it would really throw people off."

Later on in the episode, another celeb was unmasked - and we found out Blob was Sir Lenny Henry.

Speaking about his experience on the show, Lenny said that it was a 'joy' to be there and that he 'really enjoyed it'.

Last week, it was Bush Baby who was unveiled as comedian John Thomson.

When asked why he decided to do the show, John said: "Why not?"

And speaking about his costume, he said that there was a 'sense of relief' in not having to wear it again.

He said: "I have to say, as a northerner who doesn't feel the cold, who is already covered in hair, it hasn't been the greatest. There was a sense of relief.

When is The Masked Singer on ITV?
