He wrote: ”’It’s you daddy, it’s you!” If you’re wondering why I did the show then this smile right here should explain a lot!’

On Tuesday Aston revealed the strangest part of The Masked Singer UK was ‘covering up’ his body under his Robin disguise, as he admitted he’s spent his ‘whole life trying to take clothes off.’

However he confirmed it was refreshing not having to ‘tense my abs all the time’ as he reflected on his experience on the ITV programme and finishing in third place.

Aston said to The Sun on Monday: ‘I’ve been on stage my whole life trying to take clothes off, not clamp outfits on.

‘It’s a bit nuts. But it was nice not tensing my abs all the time. I was really kind of Conor McGregor, you know, swagger. It was outland-ish. It was fun.’

He also revealed that he was forced to brush off questions from his bandmates as they begun to suspect he was participating on the show. 

The singer, who has just released his new singe Overboard, confirmed he would respond: ‘What are you talking about?’ or, ‘I don’t have time for this,’ whenever he was probed about The Masked Singer.   

Aston admitted you can’t build friendships over the course of ten-plus-years and expect those friends to forget what you sound like. 

Panellists Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall and Rita Ora all guessed that the JLS singer was hiding beneath the elaborate bird disguise before he was finally unveiled.
