The Masked Singer revealed its sixth celebrity in tonight’s episode (30 January).

The hit ITV series sees a roster of celebrities dress up in elaborate costumes that conceal their identity, and compete in a singing competition.

During the episode, all seven remaining competitors performed before the TV audience, as well as judges Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall.

At the end of the programme, which had a double elimination, Viking was announced to have receivied the lowest number of votes.

After he was chosen for elimination, it was then revealed that Viking’s identity was in fact A-ha singer Morten Harket.

In a rare circumstance for the programme, none of the judges had correctly guessed Harket’s identity at any point during the series.

Harket is the lead singer of Norwegian band A-ha whose most famous hit is “Take One Me”, which he performed earlier on in the series.

The identity of Blob was also revealed following a double elimination.

The Masked Singer continues on ITV at 7pm every Saturday. Next week will be the semi-final featuring guest judge Matt Lucas.
