The Masked Singer UK will eliminate TWO contestants on Saturday with guest judge Alan Carr

Last week John Thomson became the latest contestant to be eliminated from the show and revealed as the Bush Baby. 

And The Masked Singer UK is set to wave goodbye to another TWO celebrities when it returns to screens on Saturday night with an exciting change to routine.

The remaining seven stars- Sausage, Viking, Blob, Dragon, Harlequin, Robin and Badger – will also try to fool guest judge Alan Carr as he joins the panel.

Sharing the dramatic news on Twitter in a video, ITV confirmed: ‘Next week, it’s a double elimination as seven masked singers take to the stage. 

‘Plus for one night only, Alan Carr joins the panel.’ 

In the video the comedian, 44, appeared to be in great spirits as he watched the performances and even excitedly guessed that one person could be Cher.

The show has sparked dozens of theories over who is behind the remaining seven masked singers, with Stacey Solomon, Aston Merrygold and Lenny Henry all tipped as competing in the show.

Last week actor John Thomson was revealed to be Bush Baby after becoming the latest character to be eliminated.

The Cold Feet star, 51, was one of the first celebrities who the panel failed to guess ahead of his unmasking, after completely throwing viewers with a fake Australian accent.

After his unmasking John admitted he was ‘relieved’ to be revealed as he’d struggled to keep cool in the stifling hot animal suit, joking he hoped to land a job at Disney in the future. 

Davina McCall said she was thrilled that nobody on the panel guessed Bush Baby’s identity, despite theories including Jamie Oliver and Gino D’Campo.

Jonathan Ross was adamant Bush Baby’s Australian accent was a red herring, and was quickly proven right once Worsley-born John was unmasked.   

Speaking after the vote-off John said: ‘I have to say as a Northerner who doesn’t feel the cold it’s not been the greatest. I will admit there is a sense of relief here.’  

As well as playing Pete Gilford on Cold Feet throughout its nine series run, John has  starred in Coronation Street, The Fast Show and Men Behaving Badly.

Speaking following his unmasking, he said: ‘I got halfway which was perfect for me as I wasn’t in it to win it.

‘I did it for fun and I was very grateful to be able to work during the pandemic. I was also very relieved as the costume was very, very hot and uncomfortable.’

Ahead of the elimination, host Joel Dommett revealed that Dragon and Bush Baby had received the least number of votes, and the judges opted to save the fire-breathing reptile. 

Also already unmasked have been Alien, who was revealed to be Sophie Ellis Bextor, and Seahorse, who turned out to be Spice Girl Mel B. 

Swan was also revealed as Martine McCutcheon while the Grandfather Clock was former footballer Glenn Hoddle in disguise.
