While viewers are loving this new show, many were blank-faced at the reveal of Alan, having no idea who he is… (much like panelist Rita Ora, it seems)!

Meanwhile, during Saturday night’s (04.01.20) episode, Patsy Palmer became the first celebrity to be unmasked on the ITV show.

The former EastEnders actress said: “I love singing in general – not that I’m any good – but it’s an extremely uplifting thing to do.

“I love music, it’s a total passion of mine (I DJ) so I’m constantly playing music.

“To be able to get on a stage that size was a dream too, although I must say I was really nervous.”

The 47-year-old actress insisted she has no idea who the other contestants are.

She added: “I have no idea who anyone else is in this show, it’s been the craziest experience. It could be anyone.”

Patsy chose the butterfly outfit because she feels the creatures are a “sign of transformation”.

She explained: “I love butterflies, I see them everywhere, they’re a sign of transformation, coming out of your comfort zone and for me it was totally that, everything about it.

“I see butterflies everywhere, I just love them. They’re so beautiful and delicate – and not me.”

And the actress admitted mixed feelings about her departure from the show.

She said: “I’m a little bit sad I was out first but somebody’s got to go, I’d a few other songs I’d been practising but I guess I’m relieved now because it’s so nerve-wracking…

“I’m sure the next show I’d have been less nervous but it is what it is.”
