Masked Singer viewers stunned as footballer is confirmed as Grandfather Clock

Viewers tuning in to The Masked Singer on Saturday night were left gobsmacked as the Grandfather Clock was revealed to be none other than former footballer Glenn Hoddle.

The show's panel, which consists of Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan, struggled to decide who to unmask after the mystery male went head-to-head with the Viking.

However, in the end they decided to keep the Viking and the Grandfather Clock was forced to remove his mask.

Speaking about his time on the show, Glenn said: "It was so endearing, it’s been a bit surreal, it’s been great fun.

"I’ve always had a passion for singing and I wanted to give it a go. When this came along which was too good to say no to."

Asked how difficult it was to keep the whole thing a secret, Glenn said: "Incredibly tough! I wanted to share the news with my children and grandchildren as I knew they’d love it. I’ve had to bite my tongue on a few occasions."
