After ending up against Duck in the sing-off, Chameleon left the judges staggered with his performance of True Colours in a Soprano tone.

Sadly Duck’s version of Ave Maria proved more appealing to the panel, who chose to send them through to the next show.

Having been eliminated, it was time for Chameleon to remove his mask, and the revelation that it was Justin left many viewers stunned.

Elated: Rita admitted she was ‘blushing’ after learning that Justin was behind the mask, and said she only previously knew about his due to his constant partying

Who is it? Having lost to Duck in the sing-off, host Joel Dommett asked Chameleon to remove his mask, and the revelation left the judging panel stunned

Mortified: Rita admitted she was ‘blushing’ after seeing it was Justin behind the mask, and tried to hide her face behind her notebook

Rita was equally shocked and admitted she previously knew Justin only due to his partying, and tried to hide her face behind her notebook as she was ‘blushing’ by the reveal.

Many viewers rushed to social media to share their reaction to the revelation that Justin was the Chameleon.

One wrote: ‘So… it was Justin Hawkins, gutted he’s gone through as I think he deserved to stay over Duck.’

Another wrote: ‘Canny believe I watched this. Even more surprised I guessed it was Justin Hawkins.’

‘Justin you smashed it on #MaskedSinger so emotional,’ a third viewer posted.

‘Justin from The Darkness as Chameleon was an absolute shocker what a crazy show this is!!’ a fan wrote.

Seriously? Many viewers rushed to social media to share their reaction to the revelation that Justin was the Chameleon

It came after Justin left Rita delighted when he handed her a single red rose during his performance.  

The Girls hitmaker gushed ‘awww’ as she reached out for the flower during his performance of Feel It Still by Portugal. The Man.

The Chameleon (Justin) took a rose from the mouth of one of his four neon psychedelic-themed backing dancers before approaching the judging panel.

Jonathan Ross crooned: ‘Who are you? Who are you?’, before trying to sneak a peak under the costume’s elaborate mask.

Reaching around the talk show host, the Chameleon handed the rose to Rita. The pair began a flirtation after she was impressed with his costume last week.

She previously said: ‘He looks fit, I never thought I would fancy a chameleon!’

And Rita looked ecstatic as she was handed her gift, before the Chameleon shimmied away back onto the main stage.

During Saturday’s pre-recorded show, many viewers rushed to poke fun at the judging panel for claiming that some of the characters could be A-List stars.

Many viewers took to Twitter to share their bewilderment that Hollywood’s biggest celebrities could have taken part in the show.

Get real: During Saturday’s pre-recorded show, many viewers rushed to poke fun at the judging panel for claiming that some of the characters could be A-List stars

One tweeted: ‘Rita Ora throwing some serious side shade suggesting global superstar Kylie Minogue would be dressed up as a bloody bee to be a contestant on #TheMaskedSingerUK.’

While another joked: ‘Listen, I’m watching #TheMaskedSingerUK. And my favourite thing is when the judges guess it’s an A-List Hollywood Star. Like, Margot Robbie’s looked at her calendar and gone ‘Yeah, sure, it’s award season but I’ll squeeze in a light entertainment programme on ITV1.’

A third remarked: ‘I feel like they’re guessing people like Olivia Coleman and Emilia Clarke but it’ll turn out to be someone like Jemma Lucy or Jodie Marsh #TheMaskedSingerUK.’

‘Me waiting for LL Cool J or Jamie Foxx to be revealed but it turns out to be someone who had three appearances on Emmerdale and a short stint on CelebrityBig Brother #TheMaskedSingerUK #MaskedSinger #TheMaskedSinger,’ another quipped.

Sensational: Duck beat Chameoleon in the sing-off, meaning their identity is still a closely-guarded secret

Another remarked: ‘why would margot robbie or emilia clarke be on a shitty british reality show i am DYING #TheMaskedSingerUK.’

As ever fans also rushed to social media to share their theories about who could be hiding behind the mask, and many are already convinced that they’ve figured out the identity of Queen Bee.

Hundreds of viewers flooded Twitter to express their certainty Nicola, 34, was the star under the bee mask- but judge Davina McCall guessed it was Nadine Coyle.

Behind the mask: Hundreds of viewers also flooded Twitter to claimed that Nicola Roberts was the star behind Queen Bee

The Queen Bee revealed she was a ‘lawmaker’, leading to fan speculation she was the Girls’ Aloud star.

However, Davina said she thought the Queen Bee could actually be Nicola’s bandmate Nadine, after the performance of Someone You Loved by Lewis Capaldi.

She said: ‘What girl band singers are activists? I was thinking, you know Girls’ Aloud? Nadine Coyle!’ 

Could it be her? Fans were ‘100 per cent’ convinced that Queen Bee was actually Girls’ Aloud star Nicola

Viewers took to social media with screenshots from Nicola’s Wikipedia page proving she had been an activist in both anti-tanning and anti-bullying campaigns.

One said: ‘Queen Bee is 100% Nicola Roberts. She helped pass a law so that under 18s can’t sunbed, and banging her drum referring to ‘Beat of My Drum’ – love her! #maskedsinger.’ 

Another added: ‘More convinced that Queen Bee is Nicola Roberts after the ‘lawmaker’ clue – she helped campaign for the law that banned under 18s from using tanning beds #maskedsinger.’

One added: ‘Queen Bee is 100% Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud! #TheMaskedSinger.’

Is she right: Fans completely disagreed with the judge after she said she thought the star under the mask was actually Nadine

It’s her! Fans rushed to social media to share their theories that Nicola could be the star behind the Queen Bee mask

Energetic: Unicorn delivered a colourful rendition of the Lizzo hit Juice, before the audience voted them through to the next round

While another fan of the show penned: ‘How can anyone say the queen bee isn’t Nicola when any GA fan knows her voice a mile off #MaskedSinger.’

Another viewer wrote: ‘Dunno why I’m watching #MaskedSinger but the Bee is 100% Nicola Roberts. She campaigned for a ban on tanning under 18. It’s her.’

‘Late the the party but I am ADAMANT that Queen Bee is @NicolaRoberts #TheMaskedSinger,’ another said.

Saturday’s show saw five more characters take to the stage with individual performances, as they each tried to win over the audience vote.
