Martin and Shirlie Kemp took part in 'The Masked Singer' to "embarrass" their kids.

The pair - who have singer Harley and DJ Roman together - were the latest stars unmasked on the competition series on Saturday (14.01.23) after they were in the bottom two alongside Knitting, and they admitted they weren't expecting their children to be impressed by their turn as Cat and Mouse.

Asked if Roman knew they were on the show, Shirlie said: "No!

"This is going to embarrass him. Most people say they are doing it for their kids."

Martin added: "We're doing it to embarrass them."

And the pair's prediction was right, because Roman shared footage of his horrified reaction on social media.

He uploaded a video on Instagram in which he asked: "Can someone please explain what is going on?"

He hilariously raged on Twitter: "ARE YOU F****** JOKING? I JUST SHOUTED THE PHRASE “TAKE IT OFF” TO MY PARENTS I CANT UNDO THAT.(sic)"

Roman later uploaded a clip of him watching the show with his mum and sister.

At the big reveal, he shouted: "Shut the f*** up. I knew it! I knew it! You're a liar. You're a liar, look at you over there. You are such a liar."

He then embraced his mother before the video stopped.

The Capital Breakfast host also shared a photo of Shirlie on TV after being unmasked and wrote of the former Wham backing singer: "My mum: I’ve no interest in being famous anymore

"Also my mum... (sic)"

Shirlie later took to her own Twitter account to reveal how she and Martin had tricked their family into explaining away their absence while filming the show.

She posted: "And to think, our kids thought we were on a romantic getaway… #MaskedSingerUK (sic)"
