Mel B has been unmasked as The Seahorse on 'The Masked Singer'
Mel B has been unmasked as The Seahorse on 'The Masked Singer'.
Three members of the panel correctly guessed the Spice Girls singer was masquerading as the fishy creature as she was booted out of the ITV competition on Saturday night (02.01.21).
Speaking after she was unmasked, she said: "I thought I disguised myself pretty well like with my voice and accent and trying not to be like me. I'm very shocked that you guessed me."
To which Mo Gilligan, who had insisted he would put money on it being Mel from the start, replied: "You just have such a distinctive twang. The way that you speak."
And fellow panellist Davina McCall revealed it was Mel's pronunciation of "show" which gave it away.
Whilst Rita Ora added: "Sometimes when you're too iconic, you're too iconic."
One of the clues the panel was given in order to guess it was Mel behind the mask was that the Seahorse had stolen toilet roll from a legend's house.
Explaining what had actually happened, Mel said: "Well we went to Nelson Mandela's house, we all got invited and our hair and make up team actually said to bring something with you. So I took a toilet roll and kept some for myself so we all had a token [from the day]."
It comes after Sophie Ellis-Bextor was unmasked as the Alien.
And after the show, the 'Murder On The Dancefloor' hitmaker admitted she was lucky she didn't take a tumble in her costume as she was on a platform for her performance.
She said: “I was on a platform and couldn’t see too well. I thought I might fall off.”
On having an advantage as a professional singer, she continued: "I felt like a gymnast who had a cool routine with jumps and twists, who then left after their first comedy somersault. But it’s cool."
