The Masked Singer reveals Sir Lenny Henry is Blob as he becomes second celebrity of the night unmasked

THE Masked Singer has revealed Sir Lenny Henry is Blob as he becomes the second celebrity of the night unmasked.

The comedian, 62, was eliminated alongside A-Ha's Morten Harket as the Viking in a double-eviction on Saturday night.

The panel looked shocked when Lenny Henry appeared underneath the mask – though many fans had guessed already.

After being unmasked, Lenny said: "It's not Stephen Fry Jonathan. Thank you Alan for being so generous with Morgan Freeman.

He added: "I think when I discovered you can turn around it – the spin is a big breakthrough."

Asked why he wanted to be a part of The Masked Singer, he said: "I've been in lockdown since March. So they said 'can you do this?' and I said 'yes okay I'll go'.

"So to be with people who have been so lovely, it's been a real joy to be here."

Blob lost out to Dragon, both of who were in the bottom two this week.

The comedian sang Addicted to Love by Robert Palmer, but fans really got a hint of his true identity last week when he sang about hotels.

The 62-year-old famously promotes Premier Inn in telly adverts – and the Blob is even coloured in the hotel giant's purple and white colours.

That comes on the heels of some very heavy clues involving a school with many pointing out that the comic and actor played 'superhead' Ian George in TV's Hope & Glory, which was set in a struggling comprehensive.

But perhaps the biggest two clues were harder to spot – with one eagle-eyed fan pointing out the word 'WAISTS' in kids fridge magnets in one scene.

As they pointed out, that's an anagram of TISWAS, the legendary 70s and 80s kids show he fronted with Chris Tarrant.
