Aled Jones has been revealed as Traffic Cone on The Masked Singer.
The Walking In The Air singer was unmasked during the semi-final of the ITV show, saying: “Can I go back to being classical and choral now?”
Asked why he wanted to take part he said: “It’s so uplifting and when will I ever sing Rick Astley and the Pina Colada song again?”

After he was unmasked, judge Jonathan Ross said: “I’m kicking myself.”
Jones had dazzled the panel with his rendition of Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes.
After his identity was disclosed, Jones wrote on Twitter: “What a brilliant fun experience! Singing stuff I don’t normally get to do!
“Thanks so much @maskedsingeruk and @itv – come and join #TrafficCone on tour end of the month and through March.”
