Sue Perkins’ homage to Michelle Visage after Masked Singer unveiling

The Masked Singer’s Sue Perkins has sent a sweet message the way of Michelle Visage and Courtney Act after she was revealed as Dragon on the show.

Fans all had their theories, but many agreed it was between Michelle and Courtney.

So many were left stunned when Sue lifted off the costume’s head.

“What an absolute RIDE,” Sue tweeted after the reveal, “I loved every second of it.

“Thanks to all of MS team who helped me keep the secret – and most of all to Anna my voice coach and Steve the MD who helped drag the wee voice out of Dragon. Xxxxxx (Ps. love to ⁦ @michellevisage and ⁦ @courtneyact ).”

Drag Race and Strictly star Michelle was quick to comment below: “Sue, as always, you were SENSATIONAL.”

“It just felt so utterly counter-intuitive that I had to do it,” Sue laughed after her unmasking, “I’m usually up a mountain or down a river these days – so I’m probably the last person that anyone would think of in a musical entertainment context.

“I got an awful lot of joy out of hoodwinking the panel.”

And revealing the inspiration behind her cryptic clues, she explained: “The clues came from interviews I did with production, and I was really impressed with the way they drip-fed the information across.

“For me, 90 percent of the fun as a viewer of TMS is trying to guess the person behind the foam padding.”

Tonight’s was a double elimination, with pop singer Gabrielle unmasked as Harlequin.

Unlike Sue, however, fans had rumbled Gabrielle’s voice within a few shows.

Martine McCutcheon, Morten Harket, Sir Lenny Henry, John Thompson and Glenn Hoddle are the other unmasked celebs so far.
