Talking after the results were revealed, Joss said of winning the 2021 series: ‘I honestly am still in shock. Every night I thought I was going to be unmasked. 

‘I even got my roots and lashes done at the very beginning to be ready. Haha! Silly things we do eh?!

‘If I am honest I didn’t really know the rules of the game before I got there. I thought it was if the panel guess you correctly then you have to be unmasked but no it was the audience that voted for who they liked. Eek! 

‘That made it even more nerve-racking! I just can’t believe I got so lucky to get so far. I think it was the costume that they liked rather than the singing. But hey ho as long as they were smiling and laughing we all did our jobs well.’

Talking about keeping her identity a secret, Joss added: ‘Very hard. People around me were constantly trying to guess what I was doing in these weeks.

Joss also admitted that she was ‘so nervous’ every time she performed, she confessed: ‘I was soooooo nervous every time I sang. My little knees were shaking so I had to try to stop that from shaking my voice. 

‘I knew I was going to have to unmask at some point so the last thing you want to do is a bad job beforehand. The songs were tough ones to sing but really fun. 

‘The breathing was a total mission. Just walking in that thing made me out of breath let alone singing too. Honestly that was the biggest challenge.’

Talking about the judges’ guesses over her identity, she quipped: ‘The panel are a bunch of lovelies aren’t they! Their guesses were way off but I loved them because some of them were my favourite singers. 

‘I could not believe it when I heard the names Jennifer Hudson and Beverley Knight. I would love to be able to sing even a little bit as well as they can.

Elsewhere, speaking after his identity was revealed, American singer Ne-Yo said: ‘I’ve been a fan of the show from the start! Really, I just wanted to try and see how far I could go without being identified.’ 

Talking about keeping the show a secret, he added: ‘I’m not the chattiest person, even in my personal life. So, for me it wasn’t terribly difficult to keep the secret at all.’ 

Speaking about having any show nerves, Ne-Yo said: ‘The only real nerves involved with performing in my costume for the first time was fear of falling off stage!
