‘I can’t sing but I am cute,’ Lisa laughed after taking off her mask.

‘Caterpillars can’t sing, you know that, but we do turn into butterflies. And that I can do. Well, at my age, I’ll probably turn into a moth,’ she laughed.

Lisa then said she was disappointed Hughesy didn’t guess her, after she appeared on his radio show just weeks earlier.
