Morten’s motive for The Masked Singer

Dragon, who was in the bottom three alongside the pair, survived to sing again in next week’s semi-final.

After peeling off his disguise, A-ha singer Morten told host Joel Dommett: “I did [the show] because I wanted to be kicked out of my comfort zone.

“I am used to performing but I have never done anything like this.”

Lenny Henry’s joy to be Blob

Minutes later, as Lenny revealed his identity, he explained: “It’s a huge career arc.

“I’ve been in lockdown since March so when they called to say come and do this, I was like, ‘Yes ok! I’m coming!’

“So to be here with people and them be so lovely, to look at the panel and to see you guys, it’s been a joy to be here. Thank you for letting me here.”

“I think when I discovered you could turn around [in the costume], it was a breakthrough for me.”

John Thomson was last week revealed to be Bush Baby ; earlier in the series Mel B was revealed as Seahorse, Glenn Hoddle was Grandfather Clock, Martine McCutcheon was unmasked as Swan and Sophie Ellis Bextor was exposed as Alien.

Viewers were a little perplexed that so many of them had guessed the masked singers but the panel seemingly hadn’t…
