Fans of The Masked Singer were right to think that Lorraine Kelly was Owl as the ITV star was unmasked during tonight’s (January 27) episode.

The show saw the Scottish presenter unveiled during series five’s fifth episode. Owl landed themselves in the bottom two alongside Eiffel Tower, whom the panel chose to save.

For the panel’s final guesses, they went with the likes of Jo Whiley, Gabby Logan, Emily Atack, Emily Blunt, and Alex Scott.

Despite guessing wrong, Davina McCall was enthusiastic when Owl’s head was taken off, shouting, “YES LORRAINE!”

Lorraine called out Mo Gilligan after he said he would only wear his pants if it wasn’t Alex Scott.

Taking off his shoes and jacket, the comedian pretended to strip while the audience shouted, “Take it off.”

When asked by host Joel Dommett if she had enjoyed her time on the show, Lorraine expressed that she “loved being Owl.”

She added: “I’ve loved every single second, the show is so joyful.”

Lorraine explained that she had never sung in front of an audience before taking part in the show, stating that it was “amazing to do that.”
