The 39-year-old Welsh opera star came third in the ITV singing show, which sees celebrities perform hidden inside costumes to conceal their identitiy.

Ross claimed she had confused him with her clue that she had been in the ITV soap Emmerdale.

Jenkins revealed: “I was in Emmerdale. I had a small cameo where I sang at the village fete.”

Judge Rita Ora correctly guessed Octopus’ identity after she slipped in some operatic notes into her performances.

Ora said: “I knew as soon as heard that.”

Jenkins said of the show: “My normal career can be quite static so singing songs I wouldn’t normally sing has been so much fun.”

The Welsh singer - who has had 13 Number One albums - had tried to throw the judges off the scent by speaking with an American accent.

She said: “I was trying to fool you. My husband is American and I thought my Welsh accent was a give away.”

Jenkins has been married to American artist and film director Andrew Levitas since 2014. They have a four-year-old daughter Aaliyah and a 22-month-old son Xander.
