The boyband star added that he had taken on the challenge for his daughter: "Doing this has allowed me to explore my voice as well, but I've also spent the last two years with my baby so I've watched a lot of cartoons. This is for Layla."

He said of his Westlife costars: "I told the boys I'm just going to stay in London and chill out for a couple of days and they were like, but you've got a baby in Ireland."

Jonathan Ross joked: "You're going to have to get home or people are going to think you're having an affair."

Asked how the contestants would be feeling, she said: "It's very nerve-wracking, I know that you've got a mask and nobody really knows who you are so it's fine, but this is the night you've got to take it off and you're thinking, 'oh, they're going to find out it's me!'."

The remaining two contestants Mushroom and Panda will be unmasked at the end of the show when the winner is announced.
