Adding that she put “a lot of thought” into her northern English accent before saying she is a “massive massive fan” of the popular ITV show.

“I feel like a fan who won a competition. It’s just been amazing I’ve just loved it.”

Clair said she hoped her children would be “surprised” and “happy” but admitted her son might be a bit mortified.

Judge Davina McCall described her voice as “stunning” with Rita Ora adding: “Your voice is fantastic. And the tragedy thing was such a huge clue.”

However, everyone was stuck on what the four knitting needles represented with Clair Richards saying: “That’s because I came fourth in Big Brother.”

Daisy May cooper was also glowing about her time on the show as Otter, saying: “I’ve loved it, I mean I’m exhausted and absolutely relieved but I loved every single second of it and I did this for my daughter Pip who is a massive fan of the show and because I needed the cash.”

Mo Gilligan, who was the first panelist to guess the singer, said: “I got one! And it was an otter and I love otters. Do you know what it was with you Daisy, you could tell you were a comedic actress because you’re so physical, but you’re a really good singer.”

Host Joel Dommett praised This Country actor, saying: “You didn’t stop moving the entire time,” to which Cooper replied: “Tell me about it! Oh my god why did I put so much energy into the first…and then I had to keep it up. Why couldn’t I have been a sloth or something.”
