Chris Kamara shared the sweet moment his grandchildren watched him being unmasked as Ghost on The Masked Singer in the first elimination.

The former Sky Sports pundit, 64, who was recently diagnosed with apraxia of speech, admitted he had 'done the show for them'. 

Chris and his family gathered around the TV to watch the 'magical moment', with the young kids looking shocked at the big reveal.

They were chanting 'take it off' before excitedly shouting 'It's my grandad' when Chris took his skeleton mask off.

After being unmasked, Chris said: 'My grandkids, we'll sit around together and they’ll have no idea. They love this show. They just sing ‘take it off’ and grandad’s going to turn around!'

He added: 'I did it for the grandkids. I want to see the surprise on their faces when they see me unmasked on the show.

'Not even my wife knows so it’s going to be a surprise for the whole family. I’m not the best at keeping secrets so I’m not sure what will shock them most, taking part in the show or keeping it a secret.'

Chris also explained several of the clues about his identity, sharing that he previously had two albums out, and has done duets with big stars, such as Robbie Williams and Danny Jones.

The judges were gobsmacked, after having guessed the identity of Ghost as John Bishop and Iain Stirling.

Fans at home were not as easily deceived however, and many guessed that the former footballer was under the mask.

It comes after Chris went public about his apraxia of speech (AOS) diagnosis last year.

It was an end of an era for Chris when he left his Sky Sports jobs after 24 years at the end of last season due to the condition.
