Dave Hughes humiliated by Nikki Webster on The Masked Singer
Comedian Dave Hughes has been left with egg on his face after he failed to pick Nikki Webster as the Alien on Monday night's episode of The Masked Singer.
The TV favourite said he was "sure" he knew who was behind the Alien mask, guessing Olympic skier and former Australian Survivor contestant, Lydia Lassila.
However, when it was revealed that 'Strawberry Kisses' singer Nikki was the celebrity behind the mask, David Hughes almost couldn't believe how he missed all the familiar clues, exclaiming: “Nikki was on my TV show, Hughesy We Have a Problem'.

Nikki couldn't believe it either, telling Hughsy: “I thought you’d get me first.”
Back-tracking, David Hughes claimed that he had initially suspected Nikki but then he “went off track”.
Nikki was unmasked as the Alien on Monday night
Luckily, there was no bad blood between the pair, with the dance school owner saying "love you!" to the comedian before she was booted from the show.
Last week, people started suspecting it was Nikki underneath the alien mask, with fans pointing out the petite frame and singing style mirror that of the 32-year-old famous singer.
Speaking with theDaily Telegraph, the Sydney 2000 Olympics icon had previously hinted her involvement with the show, coyly telling the publication: "I have seen a bit of talk and a lot of kids at the studio.
"Would I do a reality show like that? I don’t know. I guess it depends … right time, right place, it just depends."
