Charlie Simpson has won 'The Masked Singer'.

The 37-year-old musician - who shot to stardom as part of Busted - has won the latest series of the ITV show, as Charlie was revealed to have been behind the Rhino mask.

Speaking about his experience on the programme, Charlie shared: "I was terrified the entire time. The thing I was scared most of was remembering lyrics. I often forget lyrics to my own songs on stage!"

Charlie also confessed to being pessimistic about his chances of winning the show at the start of the competition.

Despite this, the singer - who sang songs such as Snow Patrol's 'Chasing Cars' and Pink's 'Try' - was determined to have fun on the programme, regardless of the result.

Asked if he felt he would win the series by host Joel Dommett, the pop star replied: "No, I was just like, 'remember the lyrics and have fun.'"

Earlier in the show, Natalie Appleton was unmasked as Fawn.

The 49-year-old pop star was the first finalist to be unmasked after she received the fewest number of public votes.

After her elimination was confirmed, Natalie - who is best known for starring in the British girl group All Saints - said: "I loved fooling you guys - it was such a buzz!"

Meanwhile, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson was later unmasked as Phoenix.

The judges were stunned when Ricky, 45, removed his masked - especially Rita Ora, as she'd previously worked alongside him on 'The Voice UK'.

Rita, 32 - who starred on 'The Voice' in 2015 - said: "Oh my God, we did a whole show together!"
