“It’s a no brainer for me. I was so excited. It’s been an absolute blast.”

When he was unmasked, there was screams from the celebrity panellists – which including Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall and this week’s guest judges, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne – as most of them had guessed correctly.

Jake’s identity was given away earlier when it was revealed he had been naked in front of Sharon’s husband Ozzy Osbourne, which he revealed happened during a stag party.

The panel were also given the clue that the Unicorn was asked for his number by Cher on social media, prompting the panel to gear their guesses towards Jake.
