Unforgotten’s Nicola Walker admits she’d be ‘too scared’ to do The Masked Singer

Unforgotten star Nicola Walker has opened up about the reasons why she doesn't think she's cut out for celebrity singing show The Masked Singer.

Although the 51 year old actress has a secret singing talent, she revealed to us that she'd be "too scared" to take part in the musical bonanza.

During her exclusive chat with OK! , she said: "I wish I was confident enough to do it."

She laughed: "I know you’re wearing a costume but what I’m scared of is I’d end up taking the mask off to resounding silence as no one ever knows who I am."

Nicola continued: "I often get, 'You’re the woman from that show that we love.' I’m not complaining but I’m far too scared of that sort of stuff."

Although we probably won't be seeing Nicola in the next series of The Masked Singer, fans can look forward to a brand new series of steamy legal drama, The Split.

"I’m still grinning all the time because anything to do with the Split family puts a massive smile on my face. I want everyone to really enjoy it. It’s such a good story and it has a fantastic ending."

Speaking of the ending, Nicola revealed a little spoiler that should get any Split fans chomping at the bit to watch the new series.

"The brilliant thing I’m allowed to reveal is that the series ends with a wedding. But, obviously, I can’t tell you whose."

Watch Nicola Walker in The Split. The third series starts Monday 4 April at 9pm on BBC One.
