Westlife star Mark Feehily is set for a huge new role in a musical after he was ‘robbed’ of winning the ITV singing competition.
The Masked Singer’s Mark Feehily – who was unmasked as Robobunny in tonight’s final – is set for a huge new role after he was “robbed” of winning the show.
The Westlife star, 41, narrowly lost out on being crowned the champ after Panda – Natalie Imbruglia – stole the crown.
The talented singer reminded viewers of the show just how good he is at singing – and he has already been approached by producers who want him to star in a major musical.
A source exclusively told The Mirror: “There is genuine shock that he didn’t win! He was robbed!
“Honestly, Mark’s voice absolutely incredible. This has been a massive platform for him where he’s reminded millions of people of his talent.
“He’s already been approached by producers of a major hit musical and there is the potential of a new solo album on the cards.
“It is something he has wanted to do for a while but the timing has never been quite right.
“His commitment to Westlife comes first though and he’s preparing for a major new tour with the band this year and some new music but the Masked Signer appearance has opened new doors and is paving the way for Mark to do things by himself.
“2022 is going to be a huge year for him.”
It comes after singer-songwriter and Neighbours actress Natalie was unmasked as Panda on tonight and crowned champion of the ITV singing competition.
She was revealed to be underneath the cuddly costume on the ITV guessing game during the show’s final episode, taking home the victor’s gong for 2022.
Many fans argued Mark should have won the competition over Panda – who was crowned this year’s winner.
One infuriated fan penned: “Omg come on! Robobunny was way better! Mark from Westlife doing multiple voices! And you give it to some has been! Have a day off! Massive anti climax! #TheMaskedSinger #maskedsinger #maskedsingeruk #themaskedsingerUK.”
Another fumed: “Not quite sure how Panda won over Robobunny or Mushroom, but oh well. Guessed them all tonight – such a stupid but fun show #MaskedSingerUK.”
