‘Can someone please explain what is going on,’ questioned the Capital presenter, before flipping the camera to his parents on the TV.

Earlier, the show was kicked off by Jellyfish, who sang an exceptional cover of Hozier’s Take Me To Church. 

Hedging their bets, Jonathan guessed that the person behind Jellyfish was Janet Jackson, Davina guessed Kelly Clarkson, Mo guessed Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock while Rita rounded the guesses off with Halle Bailey.

Taking the show back to the 1980s with a performance of Un Poco Loco, Phoenix then took to the stage and convinced Rita that he was Jason Statham.

But Mo was adamant that it was TV personality Stephen Mulhern, before Jonathan guessed Robbie Williams.

After a dramatic performance, Otter needed a hand up from Joel as they struggled to get up from the strange, with Mo even hopping out of his seat to help. The pair eventually managed to get Otter back on their feet, before it was guessing time for the panel. 

Zoë Wanamaker was the Otter guess from Rita, while Mo went for Catherine Tate. Davina suggested Fiona Shaw and Jonathan opted to go with Mel Giedroyc.

Last but not least was Knitting, who took viewers back to 1970 by singing Enough Is Enough.

Davina guessed that Knitting was Jodie Whittaker while Jonathan picked up on button clues and suggested Emma Bunton. 

But Mo thought that it could be Kym Marsh, while Rita admitted that she had ‘no idea’ who was underneath the mask – but noted that it could be Jamelia.
