After the first two episodes of hit ITV show The Masked Singer UK, we now know that former Eastenders star Patsy Palmer was the celebrity behind the Butterfly costume and that the Pharoah was former Home Secretary Alan Johnson. However, the identities of the other celebrities still remain a mystery, although some clues have been dropped along the way as the judges, and the millions of viewers of the show, try to decipher which famous faces are hidden behind the costumes. We’ve taken a look at some of the clues we’ve been given so far to make our guesses at the faces behind the masks. The next episode of The Masked Singer airs this Saturday on ITV at 7pm.
Chameleon - Alexander Armstrong
One of the clues given about Chameleon was that he is “more used to the tech of the ’70s” which suggests the person behind the mask is at least in their 40s. He also said he’d voiced a cartoon character. Pointless host Alexander Armstrong meets both of these clues; he’s 49 and, of course, has done cartoon voiceover work on Peppa Pig and the revived series of Danger Mouse.
Daisy - Ashley Roberts
Given that she’s awkwardly avoided a few questions about if she is Daisy, we’ve gone for Ashley Roberts but in truth, Daisy didn’t give a lot away other than to hint that she’s not from the UK but that she’s hoping to stay here for a long time.
Duck - Paula Radcliffe
Duck seems to be a former sports star, after saying she used to be a long-distance runner. We’ve gone for Paula Radcliffe as our guess, just like the judges did.
Fox - Denise Van Outen
Fox admitted that she had the experience of working in the West End and that she had been collecting teapots for years. Well, Denise Van Outen has admitted in the past that she collects tea-pots and she has, of course, been a West End star!
Hedgehog - Jason Manford
We’re pretty sure that Hedgehog is a comedian, given that he said he is “most active at night” and used to working on a stage. The big clue came when he said he a had a job where he “died at 8.30 every night”, which, to us, is a clear reference to the role of Pirelli, which Manford played in the musical Sweeney Todd.
Queen Bee - Nicola Roberts
Firstly, Queen Bee had a really good voice, which made us think she is a celebrity singer. She then made a comment about starting her career as a youngster, but the comment that has us convinced that Queen Bee is former Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts is that she called herself a ‘wildcard’. When Roberts appeared on Popstars: The Rivals, she was actually eliminated from the competition before coming back as a wildcard and earning a place in Girls Aloud.
Monster - Cee-Lo Green
Monster definitely had an American accent and suggested he was successful after saying that he had “feasted on a lot of awards”. The big clue that makes us think that it is Cee-Lo Green was the name “elsewhere” which appeared on the US map on his VT. Gnarls Barkley had an album called St.Elsewhere, so we’re connecting a few dots there!
Octopus - Courtney Act
Octopus seemed to have a slight Australian twang, despite the voice distortion. She also hinted she was a former model by saying that she has experience on the runway and that she wants to be a “role model”. That hardly narrows the field but we think it may be Courtney Act.
Tree - Chris Kamara
Tree is almost certainly a former footballer, given the use of the words “goal” “pitch” and “shot” in his interview. Given the size of Tree, many people thought it was Peter Crouch but he took to Twitter to deny rumours, although he could be taking us for a fool! We think it is Chris Kamara, who has recently brought out his first solo album.
Unicorn - John Barrowman
In one of the clips on the sow, Unicorn described himself as a “show pony” that has “always stood out from the crowd”. Whoever was behind the mask knew how to act and perform, which is why we think it is
