Footballer Pepe Reina unmasked on The Masked Singer as Penguin in huge shock on Spanish series

Professional footballer Pepe Reina proved his skill set extends far beyond the pitch after being unmasked as Penguin on the Spanish version of The Masked Singer.

The Masked Singer provides celebrities with the opportunity to be judged solely on their voice, with previous stars on the UK iteration of the show including Glenn Hoddle, Sue Perkins and Jason Manford.

Sometimes, the stars who take part do have a singing background, such as Joss Stone, who won The Masked Singer UK this year.

However, at other times, those who participate come as a huge surprise – and Pepe’s big reveal definitely came as a huge shock.

During the seventh episode of the Spanish Masked Singer, Pingüino made a guest appearance to sing Hola, mi amor by Spanish artist Junco.

While comedian Jose Mota guessed that it was the former Liverpool goalkeeper behind the mask, the other panelists weren’t convinced.

Nonetheless, Jose turned out to be correct, as Pingüino took off his ornate head to reveal his identity.

Following his big reveal, Pepe tweeted about how much he had enjoyed his time on The Masked Singer, joking that he is ‘seriously pondering’ competing in Eurovision.

To be honest, he definitely has the singing chops for it!

Pepe admitted that he sweated a lot underneath his mask as the top part of his costume weighed so much.

He also shared how delighted he was for his children to see him taking part in the show, as he and his partner Yolanda Ruiz have five children.

Underneath Pepe’s tweet with the clip of his Masked Singer reveal, former professional footballer Peter Crouch shared his amusement, responding: ‘Yes Pepe!’ with a cry-laughing emoji.

Could Crouchy be interested in taking part in the third UK series? With The Masked Singer, you can always trust you’ll be in for a lot of surprises.

During a recent interview with Metro.co.uk, Sheridan Smith said that she was ‘so flattered’ that UK viewers thought that she was Sausage on The Masked Singer, who turned out to be Joss.

‘Everyone thought I was Sausage, even my own family started thinking I was Sausage!’ she said.

‘It did make me laugh because Joss Stone is the most amazing singer, so I was really flattered.’
