Another character on The Masked Singer UK has been unveiled, meaning Eiffel Tower just narrowly missed out on this year’s final.

In a semi-final double elimination, Air Fryer was at first revealed to be none other than Keala Settle, provoking a stunned reaction from the panel, Rita Ora, Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, and Mo Gilligan.

And in our second unmasking of the night, Eiffel Tower was revealed as 80s pop icon Tiffany!

Instead of re-singing a track, Tiffany – whose full name is Tiffany Darwish – sang her number one hit I Think We’re Alone Now after a special request from panellist Jonathan.

Speaking after her unmasking about why she did the show, Tiffany, 52, said: ‘I wanted to do The Masked Singer because I am a huge fan of the show, so this was a blast.

‘It’s different watching the show at home than being in one of these fantastic costumes and the energy here is just amazing.’

When asked about her favourite thing about being Eiffel Tower, she added: ‘My favourite thing about Eiffel Tower is lighting up. She is amazing. Now, I’m going to go home to all of my costumes and go, “Well, they don’t light up. What’s happening?” So, we’re going to change that!’

As for who will be the most shocked at her reveal, the music legend said some of her ‘true fans’ might have guessed because of the hand gestures she always uses when performing.

‘I think the panel was most shocked that it was me,’ she admitted.

‘They got really close, but they didn’t get there. I was chuckling inside the costume.’

So far this series, there have been plenty of shocks as mega stars have been unmasked.

Our first unmasking was the one and only Dionne Warwick, with the 83-year-old music icon the distinctive voice of Weather.

Second to be eliminated was Chicken Caesar – they were none other than Pointless host Alexander Armstrong, who had everyone fooled.

Strictly Come Dancing head judge Shirley Ballas was underneath Rat, in one of the most chaotic reveals ever on the show.

After that came the reveal of Bubble Tea, whose identity shocked one panel member in particular.

Totally oblivious, to the fact that her former co-star and on-screen daughter was right in front of her, guest judge Jennifer Saunders got the shock of her life as Absolutely Fabulous icon Julia Sawalha took off her mask.

And then we had the mother of all shocks when daytime TV royalty Lorraine Kelly proved herself to be the star underneath Owl’s costume.

Last week, Maypole was revealed to be Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton while Dippy Egg turned out to be broadcaster Nicky Campbell.

Now, just three celebs remain to battle it out for the title of Masked Singer champ 2024 in next week’s final.

But, will it be Cricket, Piranha, or Big Foot who takes the crown? The panel will be joined by comedian Rob Brydon with a cameo by Doctor Who actor David Tennant as the ultimate guessing game comes to an end…

The Masked Singer final airs next Saturday on ITV1 and ITVX.
