The Masked Singer UK has made a spectacular return to our screens, and viewers are eagerly trying to work out the identities of the singers in costume.

Donuts performed the Spice Girls anthem ‘Spice Up Your Life’, and fans were quick to launch their theories about her identity, with many guessing the person behind the costume could be ITV This Morning Chief James Martin .

Taking to Twitter, one fan said: “Doughnuts could be James Martin! He sounds North #TheMaskedSinger.”

“#TheMaskedSinger donut is James Martin, the chef shown in the clues,” added another.

A third joked: ‘Doughnuts is a sleep paralyzing demon #TheMaskedSinger

Fans think they figured out who Donuts is



But the famous TV chef isn’t the only person fans suspect is behind the foodie disguise.

Some believe the secret singer could be former Premier League player Michael Owen, with subtle hints that could hint at the footballer’s identity.

Observant fans have spotted the character’s numerous references to speed on the show, and since Owen was known to be particularly fast in the field, viewers think that might be a clue.

Claims that the 42-year-old footballer is behind the disguise have flooded Twitter, with one person saying: “I’ve never been more sure of anything than Donuts being Michael Owen. #MaskedSingerUK.”

Donuts was rescued this week, which means we won’t yet know who’s behind the mask.

Fans have also wondered about the identities of the remaining characters, with Robobunny becoming a particular source of attention.

Viewers at home seem certain that Westlife’s Mark Feehily is behind the costume and the fabulous voice.

“That’s him from western life #TheMaskedSinger,” one fan suggested.

Another commented: “Convinced it’s Mark Feehily from Westlife #TheMaskedSinger #robobunny”

“Robo Bunny is definitely Mark Feehily from Westlife, right? Sounds like him! #TheMaskedSinger” chimed in another viewer.

So far, Chandelier, Snow Leopard, and Lionfish have been unmasked.

Lionfish revealed to be Will Young

Chandelier was the first to go, revealing that singer Heather Small was the true identity behind the costume.

Snow Leopard was Gloria Hunniford’s disguise and, at 81, she was the series’ oldest contestant.

Finally, Leave Right Now singer Will Young was revealed to be the Lionfish.


Last year, singer Joss Stone kept the judges guessing throughout the competition before claiming the crown.
