EastEnders icon Patsy Palmer makes epic TV return on The Masked Singer UK

EastEnders icon Patsy Palmer was unveiled as one of the mystery celebrities taking part in The Masked Singer.

The Bianca Jackson actress received the last amount of votes from the studio audience and was asked by celebrity detectives Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Ken Jeong to take off her mask.

Patsy, 47, belted out Florence and the Machine's hit You Got The Love while dressed head to toe in a Butterfly costume.

The famous panellists failed to correctly guess Patsy and were left gobsmacked as she took off her mask.

The Masked Singer gained huge success in South Korea, America and Australia before it's UK debut this evening.

The premise of the show sees 12 celebrities don ridiculous, extravagant, and bewildering disguises to sing while our panel of judges have to try and guess who is behind the mask.

Explaining how identities were kept under wraps, host Joel Dommett explained at The Masked Singer press day: "We filmed this in Bovingdon and it was 500 or so people and we film the whole show like we just saw – then we had to get rid of the audience."

“You can imagine how happy they were, travelling all the way up to Bovingdon!” Jonathan Ross joked.

"They were told beforehand so they were cool about it. But that’s the level of the secrecy.

"It blew my mind."

Dommett continued only about 30 members of the audience were allowed to stay and see the big reveal – and a total of six people of production knew all the names of the celebrities involved.

“When we took on this job, we assumed we’d all know,” he said. “We all thought we’d be told under the table, but there was none of that."
