Ghost was the first character to be eliminated from the new series of The Masked Singer UK
Warning: This article contains major spoilers for the latest episode of The Masked Singer UK.
The fourth season of ITV’s The Masked Singer kicked off in style on Sunday night, with a true football legend becoming the first celebrity to be eliminated from the competition.
During the episode, the first six of the new weird and wonderful Masked Singer characters performed for the panel for the first time.
Ultimately, the judges chose to send Ghost packing, with footballer Chris Kamara being unveiled underneath the spooky costume, following his performance of The Drifters’ Save The Last Dance For Me.
Sharing his excitement at the prospect of watching the show with his grandchildren, Kammy told the panel: “We’ll sit around together and they’ll have no idea. They love this show. They just sing ‘take it off’ and grandad’s going to turn around!”
Interestingly, the episode aired just days after it was announced that Kammy had received an MBE in King Charles’ first ever New Year’s Honours List.
The former footballer turned pundit was given the honour for his services to association football, charity and anti-racism campaigning.

The Masked Singer continues on Saturday night at 7pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
