The television presenter said: ‘My daughter Betsy had no idea. She watched with her best friend.

‘A lot of her friends at school asked if I was the Fox and she would ask me. As a child watching she thought it was live and didn’t know it was pre-recorded, and I would say to her, “how could I be on TV if I’m sitting right here?”.

She was really confused. I kept it a secret from Eddie too.’

‘Couldn’t really see, I only had two mesh inserts to look out of, so I couldn’t see below me or top the side.’

Denise also gave her thoughts on who the remaining finalists could be.

Despite the clues pointing to Nicola Roberts being Queen Bee, the television personality said: ‘Queen Bee I think is Ariana Grande or Jade from Little Mix. Whoever Queen Bee is, she has the most phenomenal voice.

‘You’re not allowed to speak to the crew.’
