She said: "I had the best time, this has made my heart so full.

"My kids at home, I have two boys, six and eight, we are huge Masked fans. My oldest, during the pandemic, would make masks himself... when I got the call for this, hands down, of course I'm going to do this, my kids will be in awe of me."

The final saw guest judges The Vicar of Dibley star Dawn French and comedian John Bishop join Davina McCall, Oti Mabuse and Peter Crouch standing in for Jonathan Ross.

Most of the judges had guessed Morris was Scissors by the end of the final after she dropped a lot of clues about cheerleading - linking to her character in Glee. Although several of the judges had been sure she was one of the Pussycat Dolls.
