The hugely popular ITV series, which sees a number of masked contestants take to the stage to show off their singing skills, featured a double elimination this week as comedian Alan Carr joined the judges Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan

Saturday’s episode saw all seven remaining masks Sausage, Blob, Viking, Badger, Dragon, Harlequin and Robin take to the stage to perform. But sadly, two celebrities had to say goodbye. Find out who was unmasked below!

First to reveal their true identity was Viking, who turned out to be Morten Harket, the lead singer from A-ha, who is the first celebrity to sing their own song in the competition.

Speaking about his time in the competition, Morten said: "My personal highlight was meeting a lot of new people in music and TV production I otherwise wouldn’t meet.   In my profession, I am used to existing in quite a cocoon working with the same people.

"The Masked Singer represents an entourage of people of professional capacity across a rather wide range, none of which I have met before."
