The lead singer of Keane left the contest after singing the hit Unwritten, by Natasha Bedingfield. 
Speaking after the show, as reported in the Daily Mail, Tom said he decided to take part in the show because he had reached a point in his life where he didn’t take himself ‘too seriously anymore’.

“I think that’s pretty important if you’re going to dress up as a seven-foot multicoloured poodle,” he said. 
Taking to Twitter, Tom said: “Had such a blast being part of the maddest show on telly. Good luck to the remaining contestants.”
