The Masked Singer series 1 has finally crowned its winner, with all three finalists revealing their identity.

Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts was revealed to be under the Queen Bee mask, and was crowned the overall winner.

Comedian Jason Manford was actually Hedgehog in second place, with opera singer Katherine Jenkins coming third as Ocotpus.

"The last time I sang like this must have been Popstars The Rivals," said Nicola after winning the show.

Nicola then performed 'Someone You Loved' by Lewis Capaldi, but without the mask.
