Watch: Martin McCutcheon’s son reacts to her reveal on The Masked Singer
Martine McCutcheon has been unmasked as Swan in The Masked Singer.
Explaining the clues about her identity, McCutcheon said that she had once had a run-in with Donald Trump - one of the two presidents she had talked about having met.
Love Actually star McCutcheon said: “There was a prime minister and two presidents - the president, obviously we had in Love Actually and then I got to be Liza Minnelli’s wedding guest, I was her bridesmaid, and sat next to me was Donald Trump, make of that what you will.”
Her story drew gasps from the panel as Rita Ora told her: “Well, thank God you don’t know him now.”

McCutcheon’s former soap castmate Patsy Palmer, who played Bianca in EastEnders, took part in the first series of The Masked Singer and was voted off first.
Swan went up against Sausage in the sing off, a surprise bottom two as Sausage is considered to be one of the strongest performers in the contest.
The judges and many of the show’s fans were convinced that Sausage was Sheridan Smith, thanks to clues including references to the musical Legally Blonde and the TV programme Two Pints of Lager and A Packet of Crisps.
100% sausage #MaskedSingerUK is Sheridan Smith 100%

Still not sure about Dragon and Badger but I’m sticking with my predictions for the face-off;
🌭 = Sheridan Smith
🦢 = Martine McCutcheon#MaskedSingerUK

Mystery singer Sausage stays in the competition along with Robin, Badger and Dragon, who all made it through this week’s episode.
Popular guesses included Aston Merrygold for Robin, Sandi Toksvig for Dragon, and Jamiroquai’s Jay Kay for Badger.
The other five performers - Harlequin, Viking, Blob, Bushbaby and Grandfather Clock - will take to the stage for the second time next Saturday.
