The Masked Singer British star Alexander Armstrong was thrilled to appear on prime time TV 'dressed as an ac**k' as he performed as the show's Chicken Caesar

Alexander Armstrong has admitted he loved appearing 'dressed as a dick' on prime time television while appearing on The Masked Singer UK.

The actor and comedian, 53, revealed his identity on the show on Saturday night after performing while hidden in the Chicken Caesar costume.

Show panellists Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gillighan and Rita were tasked with guessing which celebrities performed as Chicken Caesar, Air Fryer, Bubble Tea, Owl, Piranha and Eiffel Tower using some key clues.

And Pointless presenter Alexander said he found the Chicken Caesar outfit amusing, adding that it was a liberating feeling to perform without being caked in stage make-up.

He told the Mirror: 'The costume just made me laugh, and being on prime time TV dressed as a dick.'

He added: “The fact that you don't have to put on makeup, you don't have to shave, no one has to see you.

'You don't have to say anything. It's very nice not to say anything.'

Speaking about taking part in the show, Alexander said after his unmasking: 'I've been longing to do it, every year I always get messages asking: are you so and so? Are you Traffic Cone? And I say maybe!

'I enjoyed it, it's the beginning of the journey and the end of the journey, but what a journey it has been!'

When asked if he wanted to keep it a secret, he added, “I've discovered that it's okay to keep it a secret. It's made very easy for us because we all have code names. I'm really good at talking about the codenamed program, so it was pretty good.

“Obviously it's a fact that we all have to wear a mask when we're walking around, we have to wear gloves, a full visor and all that. It just feels very Squid Game, but I don't mind that. It adds a bit of risk.

On not knowing who your co-stars are, Alexander said, “I think the strangest thing of all is that you obviously don't know any of the other people participating. The only clues you get are hearing them sing. Piranha, boy, oh boy, they are incredible. It's very strange not knowing who you're up against.

It comes after Dionne Warwick became the first character to be unmasked last week.

Joel Dommett has returned to host the ITV show, alongside judges Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan.

Olly Murs will replace Rita, 32, on the panel as she has had a 'number of diary conflicts'.

The 39-year-old singer was given the honor of his long-running role as a judge on The Voice last year, but was quickly tapped to join the Masked Singer family.

The characters who take to the stage in the hope of fooling the panel and viewers at home are Maypole, Cricket, Bigfoot, Dippy Egg and Rat.

It comes after it was revealed Davina stormed off stage in anger during filming of the new season.

The panellist, 56, admitted she was left so shocked and embarrassed after being unable to guess the identity of a singer, who turned out to be a very close friend, that she left the set.

Davina admitted that she had 'made a fool of herself' by the revelation and, despite being humiliated, called it the 'biggest surprise' she had ever had.

The broadcaster, who appears on the panel alongside Mo Gilligan, Jonathan Ross and Rita Ora, told The Sun: 'The funny thing was we all met this one character. We were kicking ourselves.”

“I couldn't help but storm away when I saw who that person was.”

“There have been a lot of people on the show that I've met in passing, but this was a true friend, someone I've known for years.”

The Masked Singer airs on Saturdays at 7pm on ITV1, ITVX and STV.
