TV

The Masked Singer kicked off this weekend, with a whole batch of celebrities concealing their identities under elaborate masks and costumes.

A celebrity detective panel comprised of Ken Jeong, Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross and Rita Ora then had to guess which celebrity was under the mask, as the masked celeb belted out a tune.

The celebrity with the least number of votes from the studio audience is then given the boot from the competition.

Last night former Home Secretary Alan Johnson received the least number of votes and had to reveal his identity, following his performance to The Bangles’ Walk Like An Egyptian.

He appeared on This Morning today to talk about the wacky programme and expose some of the backstage secrets to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

Speaking to the presenting pair, Alan divulged that he had to use the name ‘George Larkin’ while staying in hotels during filming, so as to conceal his identity.

He reveals how “mad” it was that chauffeurs would come to the hotels to pick him up and use the fake moniker.

Alan also divulged that around set he had to wear a “balaclava and a vizor and a board, which read ‘Don’t talk to me’.”

Alan said that the celebrities on the show don’t get to choose their costumes for the competition but they do get to select their character, and then the designers will create the elaborate outfits.

He also admitted that the fact he was under a mask was what “sealed the deal” for him as he “didn’t have to get over any inhibitions” about singing.

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
