Will Young has been unveiled as Lionfish on 'The Masked Singer'.

The 42-year-old pop star tried his best to fool the judging panel - which includes Rita Ora, Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan and Jonathan Ross - on the ITV series, but he's became the latest celebrity to crash out of this year's show.

After his unveiling, Will - who shot to fame on 'Pop Idol' in 2002 - said: "I was most concerned about you Jonathan, noticing my voice. It's really hard to try and disguise it - it's been the most incredible opportunity, you know, and such a brilliant challenge to take on."

Rita and Jonathan both managed to correctly identity the celebrity under the Lionfish costume.

Will also joked that the format of the show posed another unique problem for him.

The 'Evergreen' hitmaker quipped: "As someone who's agoraphobic, it's a big show!"

Will has become the third contestant to leave the show, following the earlier exits of Gloria Hunniford and Heather Small.

Gloria, 81, previously revealed that despite her elimination, she relished her time on the TV series.

Gloria explained: "I started to sing when I was seven, it was pre-TV days. I was making a few records but I haven't sang on stage for 27 years.

"I genuinely love this programme. I couldn't believe it when I was asked to take part!"

Heather, on the other hand, was amused by some of the guesses from the judges, which included names such as Jane McDonald, Elaine Paige, Rachel Riley and Debbie McGee.

She said at the time: "Hilarious, as they were so off the mark!"
