"We are honoured to have you. You are an absolute icon of this nation and the world," Hughesy told him.

Mel B also shared that she was a fan, revealing the lengths she would go to to watch Neighbours as a child.

"My mum would let me off school and I'd stay and watch you!"

Chrissie asked if Ryan thought people would be calling him the Knight now when they see him in the streets with the star responding, "I think it might still be Toadie, but yeah, Toadie's always been the white knight, he's always riding in to save the lost soul on Neighbours, so I think the Knight was a pretty good choice!"

The Masked Singer continues tonight at 7:30pm on Ten.
