ITV The Masked Singer fans all saying same thing as Michael Owen unmasked as Doughnuts in 'best reveal ever'

The Masked Singer fans were triumphant as footballing legend Michael Owen was unmasked as Doughnuts after weeks of wondering.

Many viewers had already worked out that it was the former Manchester United and Liverpool striker, but one fan taking to Twitter said they were still shocked to see him standing on the stage dressed as a smiley pile of doughnuts.

As his final performance Michael, 42, rapped Everybody Get Up by boyband Five surrounded by other sweet treats on the zany ITV singing show.


The pundit was eliminated after the all-star panel had to decide who to save between Rockhopper and Doughnuts.
