Denise Van Outen shares daughter’s reaction to Masked Singer unveiling

The Masked Singer semi-final saw two more characters unmasked on Saturday, as both Fox and Monster narrowly missed out on a place in the final.

After weeks of guesses, Denise Van Outen, 45, was revealed to be the star behind Fox, and took to her Instagram Stories to share her daughter Betsy’s, nine, stunned reaction to the pre-recorded unveiling.

After keeping her involvement in the show a complete secret – even from her daughter – Denise filmed the moment Betsy found out with the rest of the country.

The trio chanted ‘take if off’ along with the studio audience, with Denise maintaining a perfect poker face as Betsy could barely watch the screen.

After she removed her mask on the show, Betsy immediately turned to look at her mum, pointing and crying: ‘You!’ as Denise burst out laughing.

Confidence: The star took to Instagram and shared several snaps of herself in the studio and admitted she lost her confidence as a singer before taking part in the show 

‘It was a moment last summer when I was singing in the shower when Betsy my 9 year old daughter said to me, “Mummy, why have I never heard or seen you sing on stage?” That made me realise I had to get back to what I’ve always loved doing.

‘@themaskedsinger gave me the chance to get my confidence back. Thank you for all your lovely comments week after week. This cheeky little fox is a happy little fox.’

Denise tried to win over The Masked Singer studio audience with a rendition of Bonnie Tyler’s Holding Out For A Hero, which was highly praised by the judging panel. 

Guesses had included Tamzin Outhwaite and Martin McCutcheon, but Davina McCall was thrilled when she claimed Fox was Denise, and proved to be correct.

Denise has previously been known for her incredible voice as a star in the West End and Broadway, and has most recently been known for narrating The Only Way Is Essex. 

Denise wrote: ‘@themaskedsinger gave me the chance to get my confidence back. Thank you for all your lovely comments week after week’ 

Speaking about her time on the show, Denise said: ‘Well it’s been fun, because I’m mischievous, so it’s been good slinking around and misbehaving, I’m gonna miss the Fox!

‘It’s bizarre, and it does feel really weird, but it all starts to become part of you and you start to feel comfortable.

‘I do very musical theatre songs so I never get to do this song, so to get the chance to do this song and have no inhibitions.’

Denise then clarified some of the clues from throughout the series, explaining she worked with Andrew Lloyd Webber on a one-woman show, and previously performed as Roxy Hart in a Broadway production of Chicago.

The Masked Singer: The Final airs on Saturday at 7pm on ITV. 

Surprise! Denise was finally unmasked after missing out on a place in the final, and told host Joel Dommett she enjoyed the chance to perform songs outside of her West End roots
