The couple revealed they wanted to embarrass Roman...
Martin & Shirlie Kemp joined Capital Breakfast following their unmasking as 'Cat & Mouse' on The Masked Singer.
The pair lost out in this week's sing-off to 'Knitting' before unveiling themselves, to the surprise of the panel.
However, no one was more surprised at the reveal than their son & host of Capital Breakfast, Roman Kemp.

After a reaction video of Roman went viral on social media over the weekend, Martin hilariously explained the motive behind their appearance:
"We got exactly the right reaction, because that was the only reason we did it in the first place... to embarrass him."
Sharing why they'd kept it a secret, Shirlie continued: "Look at the pranks you've done on me since you were about 12 years old... as soon as they said 'Masked Singer', I thought, 'Oh, this is going to be so good once Ro finds out.'"

As well as chatting about the reveal, Martin shared a hilarious behind the scenes story:
"Forget the show, it's about what happens before, right? Backstage, they dress you in complete black. You've got a complete black visor, you've got gloves on.
"One night we come out of the studio and the limousine wasn't waiting for us, so they put us in a taxi, we're in the back of a taxi. The driver must have thought 'What is going on!?'"
Well done Martin & Shirlie!
