Who is Seahorse?

Searhorse is a woman, and did her first VT in the style of a TV presenter, saying: "Hello, it's mke, the searhose, and on today's show, we are asking 'who is the seahorse?'

"That's the question on everyone's lips, and I'm here to help you figure that out.

"All I can tell you is that seahorses have a magical quality, they look unique.

"Even i don't recognise myself."

Seahorse added of her decision to do the show: "I'm a little bit nervous but I can't wait to have some fun."

Rita Ora guessed it could be Jessica Ennis-Hill, with Jonathan Ross suggesting Trisha Goddard.

Davina McCall predicted Debbie McGee, with Mo Gilligan saying it could be Mel B.

Twitter seems to be divided by Seahorse's identity, with many echoing the prediction that it could be Trisha.

Seahorse's final clue was: "I once stole toilet roll from a total legend's house."

Seahorse was unmasked in week two, and it was Spice Girl Mel B!

Speaking about her decision to do the show, Mel said: "The show's a great show, and you get to not be yourself for a second."

One of her clues was that she stole toilet roll from a 'total legend's' house, and she revealed the story behind this anecdote to Joel Dommett.
