    Between Knitting, Otter and Fawn – who were in the bottom three – it was time for the first celebrity to be unmasked.

    After it was revealed that Knitting had received the least studio votes, host Joel instructed the celebrity to unmask themselves.

    Taking off the woolly mask, Claire from Steps was unveiled as the celebrity behind the identity of Knitting – leaving fans rejoicing after their spot-on guesses.

    "Not shocked, of course it’s Claire from Steps," penned one.

    While another said: "Unmistakable fabulous voice Claire form Steps sad to see her go."

    Speaking in her exit interview about some of the judge's guesses, which included Suzanne Shaw and Faye Tozer, Claire said: "Some of the panel's guesses were funny and it’s interesting how a clue taken slightly wrong can send them down a really random path."

    It was then down to the judges to pick between Otter and Fawn, with them eliminating Otter.

    Many fans believed that comedian and This Country star Daisy May Cooper was behind the identity of Otter, and viewers were overjoyed when it was revealed that they was indeed correct.

    Taking to Twitter fans were incredibly happy to have got their guesses right.

    "I knew she was Otter and everything Daisy May Cooper does makes me so happy. She was brilliant," wrote one.


    In Daisy's exit interview, when she was asked why she chose Otter as her disguise she said: "Because it gave me hips and an arse!"

    With just five masked celebrities remaining, who out of – Jellyfish, Phoenix, Fawn, Jacket Potato and Rhino – do you think will be crowned as the winner? And more importantly, who do you think are behind the masks?

    The Masked Singer continues next Saturday on ITV1 and ITVX
