The Masked Singer’s Robin unmasked as JLS legend Aston Merrygold

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter lets Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes every Sunday

The Masked Singer fans were left chuffed on Saturday night as Robin was finally revealed.

Ever since the series kicked off at the end of 2020, viewers had been throwing various names into the mix for who was behind the bird costume.

But it seems fans didn't find it too difficult as they had correctly guessed JLS star Aston Merrygold for weeks and weeks.

Coming in third place, Robin was forced to finally reveal his identity and it just so happened to be on Aston's 33rd birthday.

When asked why he decided to take part, Aston said: "I love singing! So what better challenge than to be able to do it behind a mask and it be all about the voice."

Commenting on how difficult it was to keep his involvement under wraps, he added: "Not as hard as I first thought! It’s actually been quite exciting knowing and my friends and family had no idea."

Aston admitted to host Joel Dommett that even his JLS bandmates didn't know he was on the show.

Marvin Humes and his wife Rochelle took to their Instagram Stories as they watched the ITV show at home with their eldest daughter Alaia-Mai and posted a video in which they called Aston a "naughty uncle".

But it's no surprise that Aston didn't tell anyone as he admitted: "It was like a military operation at every turn! That just made it all the more fun."

Judge Rita Ora had correctly guessed Aston, but the rest of the panel had suggested some rather obscure names.

"Some of their guesses were very flattering and some I was very confused at!" Aston said.

"The panel are a great bunch and they bring great energy."

Theories as to Robin could be included various boyband stars such as Blue's Lee Ryan and Westlife's Nicky Byrne, as well as Peter Andre and Olly Murs.

Each week Robin gave viewers clues about his identity which led to all sorts of celebs being predicted.

When Robin was featured alongside two performers wearing 3D glasses, many pointed out that JLS have a song called 3D and have even released a 3D movie.

Other hints included a reference to Diversity and a Union Jack flag.
