He sang I’m Gonna Be by The Proclaimers dressed as a big volcano. Iconic!

Seven also launched SAS Australia, which had an average viewership of 647,000 viewers, putting it in the middle of The Masked Singer‘s reveal and the rest of the episode. The episode saw the competing celebrities get tear gassed (yes, you read that right! This is no mere Big Brother challenge!), strip to their undies, and also do some monkey bars.

For the ABC, 7.30 had 636,000 viewers, Four Corners had 621,000, Australian Story had 608,000 and Media Watch had 496,000.

Finally, on Nine, Hot Seat had 470,000 viewers.
