After he was unmasked, Howard took to his Twitter account to share pictures from the show, one of which was a backstage snap of him stretching in his costume.
Lying on the ground without his mask on, Howard held on to each foot as he did a dramatic split, showing he is just as flexible as he was when the boyband first started in the early 90s.
Howard wrote alongside the snaps: “Being unmasked was exhilarating after walking round the studio incognito @MaskedSingerUK.”
His fans were loving his bendy moves, with one writing underneath: “I’m very sorry for my language (as I try my best to be a lady) but…….HOLY F***.”

Another tweeted: “I loooove that you did this! And I loooove that you showed everyone once again how good a dancer you are! It was so much fun to watch! Hope you enjoyed it as well.”
A third added: “Omg! When you stretch your legs like that I have all sorts of images in my mind! Lol.”
After he was unmasked, Howard admitted it had been hard to keep his involvement in the show a secret from his two daughters.
He said: “[It wass] super hard, my daughters don’t even know, one’s 21 and one’s 16 and they’re like ‘what are you doing in London?’

“I’m so made up that I made it to the final, I got a bronze medal.”
Before Howard was unmasked, former EastEnders actress Tamzin Outhwaite was unveiled as Scarecrow.
Once Howard was revealed, he was followed by runner up Bonnie Langford as Squirrel and then Louis Smith was crowned the winner as Carwash.
