Aled Jones has been revealed as Traffic Cone on The Masked Singer.

The Walking In The Air singer was unmasked during the semi-final of the ITV show, saying: “Can I go back to being classical and choral now?”

Asked why he wanted to take part he said: “It’s so uplifting and when will I ever sing Rick Astley and the Pina Colada song again?”

After he was unmasked, judge Jonathan Ross said: “I’m kicking myself.”

Jones had dazzled the panel with his rendition of Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes.

After his identity was disclosed, Jones wrote on Twitter: “What a brilliant fun experience! Singing stuff I don’t normally get to do!

“Thanks so much @maskedsingeruk and @itv – come and join #TrafficCone on tour end of the month and through March.”

The semi-final of the show saw Dame Joan Collins join Ross and fellow panellists Mo Gilligan, Rita Ora and Davina McCall.

Another star will be unveiled during the episode before three stars carry on, to perform in the grand final next Saturday.
