Davina McCall filmed the final of The Masked Singer UK months ago, but was sworn to secrecy. The mum-of-three has admitted that she won’t even reveal the secret identity of the contestants to her eldest daughter, as she said it would “ruin it”.
Davina, is mum to Holly, 19, Tilly, 17, and Chester 14, who she shares with her ex husband Matthew Robertson.
The 53-year-old said her first born had pestered her for some inside knowledge when they watched the show together before she returned to university.
Davina, of course, knows who will star in tonight’s final, who will be unmasked, and who will win the singing competition.
She sits on the judging panel with Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan.
The TV star said: “Holly, my eldest daughter, watched it with me a couple of times before she went back to uni.
“She was like, ‘Is it blah blah?’. I was like, ‘Holly, you know me so little’.
“She said, ‘I’m your daughter’.
“I went, ‘No, you can’t pull that cord, like, it doesn’t work like that. It ruins it, it would ruin it if you knew’,” The Sun reports.
There are only three contestants left in the competition now – Sausage, Badger and Robin.
Many names have been thrown into the mix as to who is behind each of the masks.
Former X Factor star Stacey Solomon has been mentioned a few times as a possible candidate for Sausage.
While the judges thought JLS star Aston Merrygold could be behind the character of Robin.
Former motorcycle racer Carl Fogerty and singer James Blunt have both been suggested for Badger.

According to reports, only six producers know the identities of the Masked Singers.
Even the costume designers only have measurements to work with behind-the-scenes.
Most of the cast and crew, as well as the studio audience, leave the room, when each contestant is unmasked to reduce the chances of the celebrities being revealed.
Last year, viewers of the show were delighted to see Queen Bee crowned the winner of the programme and unmasked to be Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts.
So far, this season has seen a host of famous faces take part in the competition from comedians to football stars.
Last week singer Gabrielle was revealed to be Harlequin and TV star Sue Perkins as Dragon.
Before that, comedian Lenny Henry was revealed to be Blob, former football manager Glenn Hoddle as the Grandfather Clock, Cold Feet’s John Thompson as Bush Baby and Spice Girl Mel B as Seahorse,
A-ha singer Morten Harket, Ex EastEnders star Martine McCutcheon and singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor also took part in the 2021.
The Masked Singer UK concludes tonight at 7pm on ITV.
