Davina McCall says she even gets grilled when doing her weekly shop in Tesco and says she couldn’t tell people if she wanted to thanks to a legal document the panel have signed
Davina McCall says she gets stopped in Tesco by shoppers who try to trick her into giving away The Masked Singer secrets.
Tonight’s the night as the ITV show’s finale hits our screens as the 2022 winner is crowned.
Panda, Mushroom and Robobunny battle it out and as you would expect, the theories are flying around.
But Davina has revealed she even gets grilled in supermarkets with people desperate for clues.
The former Big Brother host is now a judge – and she hasn’t had too much luck so far this series.
The panel will this evening add last year’s winner Joss Stone, who was unmasked as Sausage in 2021.
Joss will sit alongside Davina, Mo Gilligan, Jonathan Ross and Rita Ora – and the nation is gripped.
But poor Davina says she can’t get five minutes’ peace – even she she’s doing her weekly shop.
“It’s non-stop, people ask me, friends ask me – I was in Tesco today and someone tried to trick me into saying something.,” she told Silver Screen Beat.
“They go, ‘Of course Panda is so and so’ and I go, ‘You’re not going to do it that easily. I’m not even going to give you a hint you might be right!’ If you find out before the show and you didn’t just guess it, it ruins it. That is the joy of the show.
“We’re like Official Secrets Act-trained. We’ve signed, like, an NDA and legally we can’t discuss it.”
But host Joel Dommett has given fans a sneak hint of who the 2022 winner of the ITV show.
The 36-year-old appeared on ITV’s Lorraine on Thursday to discuss the finale.
Host Lorraine Kelly, 62, noted that Joel already knows who has won the hit celebrity singing competition as it was pre-recorded, asking if he was happy with the outcome.
He said: “I was very, very happy with the outcome. It’s such a special final. I think it’s just all out madness, silliness, great guest judge.”
He told Lorraine: “I think the three finalists are the three that deserved to be in the final this year. I think they’re very very good.
“One person in particular – I’m not going to give it away – but, I lose my mind. I lose my mind. It comes out of nowhere.”
Although Joel now knows the winner, he said he had no idea who was under each costume throughout this year’s run of the show.
He said: “It’s very strange from my perspective and they don’t care who I think it is now.
“But I get people properly shouting at me in the street. I think people are shouting abuse, and then I realise they’re shouting ‘who’s Traffic Cone?’”
