    The Masked Singer UK was back on our screens this weekend as for a sizzling semi-final that saw two celebrities unmasked in a double elimination.

    With just five acts remaining, Jellyfish, Phoenix, Rhino, Jacket Potato and Fawn were chopped down to just three in time for the final next weekend.

    This came as semi-final panellists Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan tried to guess their identities, with the quad accompanied by guest panellist Peter Crouch.

    First to be eliminated was Jacket Potato, who turned out to be Bon Jovi legend Richie Sambora, something that came after fans were completely convinced that an EastEnders legend was behind the mask.

    The 63-year-old American guitarist, who's real name is Richard Stephen Sambora, is best known for being the lead guitarist of the rock band Bon Jovi from 1983 to 2013.

    After getting unmasked Richie said: "It's a wild reality when you do this show."

    In his exit interview, Richie spoke of the reasoning behind signing up to perform and compete on The Masked Singer UK.

    He said: "Many of the biggest songs I’ve been a part of from Livin’ On A Prayer to It’s My Life, I sang on, alongside Jon, and I just wanted to be able to have fun singing again and show my fans in the UK some love."
