Roberts told the BBC singing in the panel was a cathartic experience.

"It is so liberating and liberated," says the 34-year-old, who actually wanted to perform, like an angel or a mermaid.

"In the sense that, if you live normally, it's like, 'What should I wear now? How is my hair? My make-up is right? Oh my God, I'm so pale, The Light is terrible for me, that's terrible!'

"My favorite thing to do is to just stand and sing, so that was what I was able to do, and I have to run completely with him. "

she adds: "I was not able to sing some of my favorite songs [and] really My Voice trails after a long time singing the really.

"I was really nervous, take off The Mask , because I was like, 'Oh, God, are the people happy? All That went into it, it was just a really great, crazy night. "

'The World 's biggest to keep ghoster'

After months of schtum, Roberts ruled to be able to celebrate your victory with your Friends - including former bandmates Cheryl and Kimberley Walsh .

she admits that she is "a really bad liar", and so the ghost had to "" a lot of people notified of their ancestors, it was the insect entertainer. It was also funny, she says, to see who had not found out yet completely "lose", if you are exposed.

"My phone was just On Fire ," she laughs.

"people were messaging me, and I thought, 'I'm a really bad liar', it is probably better that I reply just as to try and create the web of lies that I'm blatantly gonna get caught out.

"So, I just don't want to answer the people," she goes on. "I was, like, The World 's biggest ghoster for Seven Weeks .

"I'm gonna have to say you are sending a group message, 'I'm so sad, I just hide literally, your news'. "

Not allowed to leave the room,

As you can imagine, the producers have to avoid running a pretty tight ship, every spoil the surprises-and so the competitors are largely in cabins is limited to their own locker room.

As a result, Roberts admits she wanted to "Stir Crazy backstage and about to loose my mind". After reaching "boiling point" a few weeks back, she broke The Rules and escaped into the outside world for a short walk around the Parking lot, just to get some Fresh Air .

"The production [staff] freaked out, and so you are the 'Queen Bee ' s left, each Queen Bee 's on the left!' on their walkie-talkies. "

"you've already had films started using Monsters," she explains. "And Then , as soon as I Heard him sing, I was like, 'Oh, I can take my mask off, I have to stay in quick-change"). I pretended to just so I could hear the next performer, and it was Cee Lo [Green].

"I went backstage, my manager and I was like," The Monster is Cee-Lo, oh my God!"

'Witch Hunt '

The singer's "liberating" anonymous singing experience culminated in the same weekend that many are calling for more control of the comments about the celebs on Social Media and in the media in General, the following

Roberts' only solo album up to today, in 2011, Cinderella's eyes, contained the Text about the negative press she received as a member of Girls Aloud .

Now, she says, while "it's great that we have freedom of the press", you would like to see the back of the dominant "witch-hunt" culture online.

"There must be a line," says Roberts. "There is a culture is a small witch-hunt that is happening, and I think that Social Media can certainly prove toxic to times.

"I think it would be great to eliminate them if we could, that those elements within the Society . "

"Josie Rourke is the phenomenal Director and I have to honor the fact that you have chosen me, in this critically-acclaimed production, and I have to do my best and give everything to the game
