Mo chose Lee Dixon as his guess, while Rita suggested Ian Wright and Davina picked David Seaman, with Jonathan guessing Peter Shilton as he played during the 1986 World Cup.

Of how the judges didn’t guess his identity, Glenn said afterwards: ‘They were so close I thought any time now they’re going to nail it, but you didn’t clock me!’

Jonathan was particularly shocked as he had thrown Glenn’s name into the ring early on, after contemplating Grandfather Clock’s musical past and saying Glenn had a single with Diamond Lights. 

He said in dismay: ‘I’m kicking myself and I just remembered you had a hit single, Hoddle and Woddle!’
