Morten Harket mocks Masked Singer judges saying it was ‘blatantly obvious’

Morten Harket has spoke of his complete shock that the The Masked Singer judges failed to guess he was inside the Viking.

Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan have been sharing their predictions for weeks but they didn't come close.

Speaking on This Morning, the A-ha frontman has teased them all by saying it was "blatantly obvious" it was him from an early stage.

Last week, he belted out smash hit Take On Me, originally performed by A-ha, to perfection – and even then the penny didn't drop, with guest judge Alan Carr also totally stumped after joining on Saturday.

The Norwegian vocalist said the red herring worked wonders and the 61-year-old told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about his time on the show.

"The idea is that we threw them further off!" he joked.

"I thought it was blatantly obvious it was me even before the last night. My band members spotted me straight away.

"My personal sound system was failing me, and it was really confusing – it made it so much harder. It made it even harder to dodge my voice.

"I managed to keep things quiet. The way to tell a lie is to stick to the truth.

"You had to twist the question when you are asked."

He even threw in the phrase "A-ha" during one of the chats before.

Everyone in the studio was stunned as Morten showed his face, while many at home had guessed the star.

Blob, Viking, and Dragon were in the bottom three as Blob joined him in leaving the show.

Dragon was saved, while Blob was eliminated and unmasked as comedian Lenny Henry.

This coming Sunday will see another double elimination out of the final remaining acts – Dragon, Sausage, Badger, Harlequin and Robin.

Morten was supposed to be on the road touring with his music group but the pandemic put those plans on hold.

He said after getting boot: "I was meant to be busy during the period in question when invited to join The Masked Singer.

"The pandemic cleared the majority of activities off the calendar and suddenly the door opened for other types of requests.

"When asked, I liked the idea of exposing myself to the insecurity of its confines, knowing I would hate that."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
