Jason Manford unmasked as the Hedgehog

Comic *was* the Masked Singer

Jason Manford has tonight been unmasked as the man behind the hedgehog outfit on The Masked Singer.

He was revealed as he came second in ITV's singing competition to Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud, who was disguised as Queen Bee.

Many fans had already guessed that the comic was the mystery celebrity, while Manford himself helped fuel the rumours. 

Earlier this week, he tweeted: ‘Big night on the telly this Saturday....can’t believe it’s the last episode! Make sure you watch.’

But it could have been a nod to the fact his  BBC gameshow First And Last also came to the end of its series tonight.

Among the clues to the Hedgehog’s identity were that he had a job which meant he died every night at 8.30pm, had links to Phantom Of The Opera and Hairspray and ‘likes being in an ensemble and can’t wait to have a ball’
