Cricket is unmasked

Cricket finished the competition in third place, removing his mask to reveal singer Lemar.

The legendary performer was correctly guessed by many of the panel, although other guesses included Seal and Simon Webbe.

“It’s been so much fun, so much. I thought it was going to be fun but it was more fun than I imagined,” Lemar said. “I was a fan of the show any way, and being able to express yourself on songs you wouldn’t ordinarily has been fun.”


He added: “I’m a fan of the show. I like the show. I like the characters, I like the fun content of it. Once I realised I could be creative and do whatever songs I wanted, I thought yes lets jump straight in!

“I didn’t think I’d last that long (on the series) if I’m honest, maybe two or three weeks, but I managed to wiggle it through to the final. ”
