The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins unveiled as Chameleon on The Masked Singer

The Masked Singer viewers were left in shock on Saturday night as Justin Hawkins was "unmasked" as Chameleon.

After an audience vote saw him in the bottom two alongside Duck on the third episode of the hit show, the celebrity detectives opted to send him home.

Ken Jeong, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Jonathan Ross each agreed that Chameleon had the weakest vocal of the night.

The Darkness frontman Justin had performed Portugal. The Man's Feel It Still in the Chameleon character before being put into the bottom two.

As they faced off against Duck, they returned to perform a second song; Cyndi Lauper's True Colours.

Show panellist Rita, 29, has hilariously forged a romance of sorts with Chameleon, gushing over his physique as he took to the stage for the first time last week.

During Saturday night's show, Chameleon handed the I Will Never Let You Down hit maker a single red rose, winning her over even more.

Viewers at home were left chuckling when Rita admitted to having a dream about her reptile beau, as she cheered him on during the series' first "face off."

However, after Justin's unveiling she continued to gush, telling the 44 year old she was a huge fan of his music.

All four of the celebrity detectives failed to identify Justin, with The Hangover star Ken guessing Chameleon was being portrayed by Jason Statham.

Former Big Brother host Davina opted for Curtis Pritchard, while chat show king Jonathan guessed it was Richard Blackwood.

Meanwhile, Rita hoped the character she had been flirting with was Anthony Joshua.

Justin's unmasking comes after former MP The Right Honourable Alan Johnson was revealed to be performing as Pharaoh last weekend.

However, the reveal left many fans at home confused, with people taking to Twitter to ask who the former Home Secretary was, admitting that they were not familiar with him.

One person wrote: "Alan Johnson.. I honestly had never heard of him", while another said: "I don't think Rita knew who Alan Johnson was (neither did I tbf)."

A third viewer wrote: "When they reveal it’s Alan Johnson and @RitaOra and @kenjeonghave no idea who it is (nor me lol) But fair play to him!! Life is short!! You walk like an Egyptian Al!! #TheMaskedSinger."

A fourth said: "Their faces of shock are actually 'who is Alan Johnson?'"

Last Saturday saw former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer unveiled as the mystery celebrity behind Butterfly on The Masked Singer.
