The Masked Singer has named its finalists as Sausage, Robin and Badger after revealing Gabrielle and Sue Perkins as two of the contestants.

Harlequin and Dragon were both voted out in the semi-final - but while viewers had been convinced for weeks that Harlequin was Gabrielle, Dragon’s unmasking as Sue Perkins was more surprising.

In the first unmasking of the episode, the former Bake Off host admitted to a terror of public singing.

Perkins said: “Being dragon is liberating and brilliant, I’ve been able to be really playful and childlike and scary and all those things that sometimes you can’t be. Every second has been brilliant.

“I would never, ever sing and that’s why I so wanted to do this, I am terrified of performing any kind of music in public.”

Surprisingly, singer Gabrielle gave a similar reason for wanting to do the show.

She said: “I’m a very nervous performer and I thought doing this, maybe I could come out of my comfort zone.”

The clues also mentioned that she had once turned down performing with Prince because she was too nervous.

Matt Lucas joined the panel this evening as the semi-final’s guest judge, having been a popular guess for Bush Baby’s identity earlier in the series before he was unmasked as John Thomson.

The finalist masked singers all impressed with their vocal talents, with some of the strongest contestants left in the competition.

Badger and Robin’s dance moves also won them some fans tonight.

Lots of the show’s fans and judge Rita Ora were still insisting that Robin was former JLS star Aston Merrygold, while Stacey Solomon is still the most popular guess for Sausage’s identity.

Next week, The Masked Singer final will unmask the three remaining contestants and declare the series two winner.
