During her shocking performance on The Masked Singer last year, where she stunned fans and judges alike with her singing talent, Martine said it was like a “military operation” to keep her identity a secret.

She added that her seven-year-old son Rafferty’s reaction was “priceless” and that he thought she was “cool” for doing something he never thought she would do.

Speaking of her time on The Masked Singer in January last year, Martine said, “I just thought it would be so nice to just come out and have fun!”

To which Davina replied: “You look amazing,” and Martine added: “That’s lovely, thanks!”

As one of her clues before she was debunked during the show, Swan teased that she had served a prime minister and done business with more than one president of the US.

Following her revelation, Martine revealed that her statement was actually a reference to her role as Natalie in Love Actually, where she serves as secretary to Prime Minister David, played by Hugh Grant, where she also meets the US President (Billy Bob Thornton) meets ).

Although the actress revealed she once had a real run-in with a US President when she sat next to Donald Trump at Liza Minnelli’s wedding in 2002.

She said of her meeting with Trump, 74: “Liza Minnelli’s wedding, I was a guest, I got to be her bridesmaid and next to me was Trump. So make of it what you want!’

Before her unmasking, Judge Jonathan said: “President, Prime Minister, makes me think of the movie Love Actually. Of course I think this is Martine McCutcheon, ladies and gentlemen!’

And after Martine’s revelation, Jonathan quipped, “I was right once!”

Jonathan also said: “I remember you once told me that you were in a girl band. Was your name Memphis?”

To which Martine joked: “Milan! We were signed to Polydor when we were 14. When I was 18 I felt like washing dishes.’

It comes after Martine recently reflected on the ups and downs of her marriage to husband Jack McManus.

She told The Sun that they “by no means have the perfect relationship” but that she “confesses in” with him when “life gets tough”.

Martine and Jack have been together for 15 years and married 10 years ago. They share seven-year-old son Rafferty, with whom they renewed their vows last month.

She told The Sun of their relationship: “Both Jack and I have always been honest, we don’t have the perfect relationship by any means.

“Like everyone, we had our ups and downs. We’ve had our challenges, but I think in the end we’re each other’s best friends.

“When life gets tough and it’s not always that fabulous, it’s good that you can have someone who you can also talk to and confide in and be completely yourself with and you know this is a safe place and he’s got your back.”

It comes two weeks after Martine sadly revealed the death of her brother LJ, who died aged 31 with no medical explanation.
