THE Masked Singer’s Cat and Mouse exited the show tonight after being named as married stars Martin and Shirlie Kemp.
The ex EastEnders actor and Pepsi singer were the third characters to be eliminated from the bizarre ITV show.
Martin, 61, told the panel after he pulled his mask off: “You lot were way out!
“We were so waiting for you to guess, especially when you said about EastEnders.”
His wife Shirlie, 60, added: “I’ve never done anything as nerve wracking in my life.”
Asked if their son, Capital Breakfast DJ Roman Kemp knows that they have taken part, 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!”
It was between them and Knitting, but the pair failed to win over pannelists Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Mo Gilligan and Jonathan Ross who ultimately decided to unmask them.
Though the panel seemed oblivious, many viewers of the ITV show already guessed that it was Martin and Shirley.
One shared a sarcastic ‘wow’ meme and penned: “Cat & Mouse are……. Martin and Shirley Kemp….”
Another moaned: “Of course it was them #maskedsinger never off the bleeding TV. But Davina McCall looks bloody amazing”
A third said: “That reveal was…anticlimactic.”
Next Saturday the remaining characters, Fawn, Jacket Potato, Pigeon, Rhino and Rubbish will be taking to the stage to sing in disguise and stump the panel and viewers alike.
