The Masked Singer semi final got off to a major bang when it was confirmed that two celebrities were to be revealed ahead of the final.

After last week’s emotional unveiling, it was down to Cricket, Bigfoot, Piranha, Air Fryer and Eiffel Tower to battle it out for a spot in the star-studded finale.

At many points throughout the night, the judging panel – made up of Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Lorraine Kelly, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan – were reduced to tears over the emotional performances.

Sadly for Air Fryer, they were voted out first and unveiled to be none other than Keala Settle.

Guesses included Ella Henderson, Whoopi Goldberg, Kimberly Wyatt, Jennifer Hudson and Rebel Wilson – which means everyone was widely wrong.

After being unmasked, the Greatest Showman star, 48, said: ‘There were so many close [guesses]. One of the guest judges you had, I actually knew…

‘It was a massive learning experience and it was a game changer for me.’

Keala – who has appeared in some huge Broadway shows including Priscilla, Les Miserables, Waitress – shared how comfortable she was while dressed up in the intricate outfit.

‘The difficulty wasn’t really physical,’ she insisted. ‘You have this facade that you’re used to performing in.’

Referring to her costume, she joked: ‘I have got an air fryer and I absolutely love it!’
