Chandelier was Heather Small. (Bandicoot TV)

First out of the contest, Chandelier was unmasked as M People frontwoman Heather Small.

She said: "The challenge was to disguise my voice so the panel couldn’t get to guess who I was. I wanted it to be a real surprise and I think I achieved that. I live with my son and mother and they had no clue."
