Masked Singer stars daughter already knew mum Katherine Ryan was Pigeon

The Masked Singer viewers up and down the country were left utterly gobsmacked on Saturday night (January 28) after beloved character Pigeon was unmasked as none other than comedian Katherine Ryan.

Fans at home suspected that the sassy singing bird on the wacky ITV singing contest was none other than The Only Way Is Essex legend Gemma Collins after spotting the character’s Essex accent.

But they weren’t the only people surprised at the recent revelation after the 39-year-old successfully kept the mysterious ITV reality show a secret from her eldest daughter Violet.

After the big reveal over the weekend, the stand-up comic begged the studio audience to keep the news quiet in order to film her daughter’s reaction.

She pleaded: “You can’t tell my daughter anything because she’d spill it to her whole school so she’ll be finding out with everyone else. We watch the show together.”

And now, the mum-of-three has shared the moment Violet watched her character was unmasked as it hit the airwaves last week.

Taking to her Instagram Story, her 13-year-old daughter could be seen jumping to her feet with frustration as she fumed: “Obviously. I knew this the whole time. I knew it wasn’t Gemma.”

The teenager later turned to her mother asking: “Why would you lie? You said you weren’t on it! I knew it!” before storming out of the room.

Katherine could be heard off-camera mumbling to her youngest daughter Fenna Grace: “Aww Fenna can’t believe it.”

Even the star-studded judging panel were surprised to see the Canadian comic on the ITV show, as she told host Joel Dommett that she was still heavily pregnant at the time.

She revealed: “I have a month left. I have a baby’s foot in my lung at most times.”
