The Masked Singer star Aled Jones will be touring in churches including Bristol Cathedral, Manchester Monastery, Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, Coventry Cathedral and more
Some of Britain’s most beautiful cathedrals are going to look like motorway roadworks later this month…
Singer Aled Jones will be touring prestigious churches on his UK tour – and will dress as a traffic cone, in homage to his Masked Singer character.
“I might have a cone costume that might come out at some points,” teases the Walking in the Air singer.
He adds with a chuckle: “I’m that predictable. But not the original costume because it is massive. It’s like seven and a half foot – it was quite heavy as well.” Aled, who was unmasked on Saturday night, required three people to help him into it.
He’ll incorporate some of his songs from the ITV series, including A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman, but rules out singing the Pina Colada song as he claims it is a “step too far”.
And comic Rob Beckett – who repeatedly claimed to be Traffic Cone on social media this series – is invited to join the fun.
“I messaged him on Saturday night and said ‘We should tour together – this could be the start of a beautiful relationship’,” says Aled. “But he was definitely not in the Traffic Cone costume because there wasn’t room for two – there was barely room for me.”
The series continues Saturday at 7pm on ITV.

Last week, Aled’s daughter Emilia, 19, was nominated for the Bafta best leading actress award for her role in the movie Coda.
He said: “I am so proud of her, such a hard-working, lovely person.”
The star learned the news while practising singing for his tour this month after a year-and-a-half off due to Covid.
He said: “I had a break and watched the ceremony on YouTube, where they did the nominations.
“And I jumped up and down because I was thrilled for her. She loves the work and I’m just a proud dad.”
