All eight of The Masked Singer’s remaining celebrities took the stage tonight before John Thompson revealed himself as the Bush baby.
The judges were all stunned to see the comedian and actor behind the cutest disguise in competition – even though Jonathan Ross suspected him?
Why did John Thompson Bush want to be a baby?
But why did the Cold Feet star want to do the show?
“I decided to take on the challenge because I was originally asked the year before, but I was just in the process of filming Cold Feet,” he said.
“When the opportunity arose, I chose it.”
And John didn’t have an easy time keeping it a secret, revealing, “The only people who knew where my partner, ex-wife and agent booked me on the show.
“In terms of explaining trips to London, I was just pretending it was for existing work that I had already done.”
MASKED SINGER SECRECY
He also sheds light on how much secrecy goes into filming and adds: “We were picked up by the driver who had signed an NDA.
“And when we approached the studio, we had to put on a mask, gloves and a sweatshirt without talking to me about it so that no one could guess our identity.
“Traveling from the locker room to the studio also involved being in full disguise.”
Hoping his character was a hit with both kids and adults, John admits, “I think it’s the big eyes. Another cute factor is that he’s dressed in a baby.
“I had a say in my costume. I had a choice of three and this one just spoke to me. “
He admitted that the whole experience was very strange and added, “The heat in the costume was unbearable.”
However, it didn’t stop him from wearing it again when he revealed, “I would love to wear my costume to a wedding or a funeral.”
Of the judges, he said, “There have been some very strange guesses from Rishi Sunak to Gino D’Acampo.
“I used an Australian accent to purposely confuse you.”
