The Masked Singer's Denise Van Outen shared her daughter Betsy's joyous reaction to her unveiling as Fox on the ITV talent show on Saturday night.
The 45-year-old TV star and West End performer posted a video clip on Instagram of nine-year-old Betsy covering her face with anticipation before watching Denise remove her mask to chants of "take it off" from the panel and the audience.
Betsy then exclaims: "It's you!" She adds: "It was you all along!"
Denise - who is sitting between Betsy and a friend in the video- can be seen laughing as the girls bounce up and down on the sofa in excitement.

"Surprise! Kept it to myself for weeks," Denise revealed in her caption on social media. "Sneaky fox."
The presenter also shared backstage pictures of herself in her Fox costume - without the mask - and wrote in the caption: "At last, I can finally tell the truth. My mask has slipped.
At last, I can finally tell the truth. My mask has slipped. After many weeks sneaking around being an undercover singing 🦊 fox, dealing with endless questions from friends and family, telling constant lies and tales (bushy ones!), I started to dislike the fox I had become. But once you’re out, you’re ‘out out’ - no going back in the Den! This is where the fun begins. Thank you for your constant support and love, I’ve enjoyed every minute of being on #themaskedsinger. Best of luck to next weeks finalists and congratulations to the whole team and crew on a fantastic series. Queen Bee for the win 👑 🐝 #bekindtofoxes #themaskedsinger

Denise made it through to the semi-final of The Masked Singer, with judge Davina McCall correctly guessing her identity. Fellow panelists Rita Ora, Ken Jeong and Jonathan Ross were seemingly stunned by Denise's unveiling.
Octopus, Hedgehog and Queen Bee remain in the competition. Other stars who have been revealed on the show include Skin from Skunk Anansie, Kelis and CeeLo Green.
The Masked Singer returns on Saturday on ITV at 7pm.
