Natalie Imbruglia admits her son almost rumbled her Masked Singer Panda identity
Natalie Imbruglia has admitted that her son Max, two, almost rumbled her The Masked Singer Panda identity.
The Torn singer, 47, appeared on Wednesday's episode of ITV's This Morning to celebrate the 25th anniversary of her debut record, Left Of The Middle, which has sold over 7 million copies to date.
Natalie, who gave a live performance of hit 90s track Torn, also discussed her time on the Masked Singer earlier this year, where she was crowned the winner.
Asked how hard it was to keep her involvement a secret, as well as her Panda disguise, Natalie admitted: "I was hiding out, I live in Oxfordshire so that part was quite easy, but I'd shown videos of rehearsals to my son, thinking: 'Well, you know, he can't speak!'
"Then I went to Australia and he started talking, we were at the airport and somebody had a Panda wheelie bag. He starts going: 'Mummy, mummy!' I was like: 'Oh no, I'm going to be rumbled by my son!'"
It comes after Natalie was crowned the winner of The Masked Singer UK after she was unveiled as Panda on the hit ITV show earlier this year.
The Australian-British songwriter and actress, who has hits including Torn, Shiver and Wrong Impression, floored Mo Gilligan, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and guest judge Joss Stone during the final on Saturday 12 February.
Natalie wowed with her vocals and beat Charlotte Church, 35, who was unmasked as Mushroom, along with Westlife star Mark Feehily, 41, who was unveiled as Robobunny.
The songstress, who played Beth Brennan in Australian soap Neighbours in the early 1990s, sang Taylor Swift's Blank Space, performed a gorgeous duet with comedian Jason Manford, who was Hedgehog in series one, and ended with Demi Lovato's Stone Cold.
Meanwhile host Joel Dommett revealed how Natalie was his "biggest crush" and even described how his wife Hannah Cooper is aware of this fact.
Speaking about lifting her mask, Natalie said: "I just loved being Panda! When you put the costume on I just would become Panda!"
The judges guesses did not come close with Mo guessing Jennifer Hudson, Rita and Davina choosing Vanessa Hudgens, Joss Stone believing Panda was Lea Michele, and Jonathan thinking it was Bear Grylls.
