Bush Baby has become the fifth contestant to be eliminated from The Masked Singer UK, leaving the panel and viewers absolutely gobsmacked.
During the latest episode of the competition, all eight of the remaining singers took to the stage.
Tonight, after Bush Baby was chosen by judges Rita Ora, Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross to exit the series, they removed the top part of their costume to reveal comedian and actor John Thomson underneath.
The panel were astounded by the singer’s true identity, with Davina exclaiming in utter shock over the big surprise.
Fans watching at home were similarly in a state of shock.
Bush Baby’s elimination came after Blob, Harlequin, Dragon, Sausage, Robin, Viking and Badger all delivered entertaining performances.
There are now only seven contestants left in the running for the win.
Last year, the grand finale of The Masked Singer UK was preceded by two consecutive weeks of double eliminations.
Could we see the same take place from next week? We just can’t wait to find out.
The Masked Singer UK returns next Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
