Piranha has been unmasked on The Masked Singer UK in this week’s grand final.


The Masked Singer UK series 5 aired its final episode on Saturday with more show-stopping musical performance from celebs concealing their identities with incredible costumes.


It was Piranha who won The Masked Singer UK this year. Taking off their mask, they were revealed to be McFly star Danny Jones.

None of the panel guessed correctly, with guesses including Conor Maynard, Jamie Cullum and Tom Grennan.

Danny said: “I’ve had the most amazing time. I can escape behind here and I’ve learned so much. I can sing high now, just from this show. It’s been incredible, thank you for making me champion.”


He added: “I think that the boys (in McFy) will be very surprised. I am my own worst enemy, so I’m always like, ‘That wasn’t very good’, so they always build me up. They’ll guess me straight away.”
