The Scissor Sisters frontman was thrilled to have appeared on the ITV show, and admitted it was "right up his alley" as he was revealed to be behind the Unicorn mask.

Asked why he chose to do the show, he said: "I've been having so much fun. I can't keep my arms down. I mean, the show is right up my alley. 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.

Jake's exit came after the panel had to choose whether to send Unicorn home or Fox, ultimately deciding it was time for the 41-year-old singer to be unmasked.

Earlier in the evening, Duck was booted out of the competition and was revealed to be Skin from Skunk Anansie, who admitted it was "really challenging".

Speaking about her time on the show, she said: "I just wanted to do something completely different and over the top and be like completely someone I wouldn't normally be. It's been really challenging and really hard. And just major fun aswell."

The 'Masked Singer' returns for its semi-final next Saturday (08.02.20).
