The One Show may have made a huge mistake by revealing the name of one of The Masked Singer competitors.
On Thursday, presenters Roman Kemp and Lauren Laverne spoke with Masked Singer star Davina McCall about the next series.
Fans of Doctor Who will remember her amazing debut in the 2023 Christmas Day special, in which new Doctor Ncuti Gatwa rescued her life from a falling Christmas tree.
On Thursday’s conversation, presenter Lauren made an intriguing remark, informing Davina, ‘A former Doctor Who will be making a cameo on The Masked Singer this season.’
Sure, he might appear as a guest judge on the programme, but the guests for this year have already been announced: Lorraine Kelly, Sir Lenny Henry, Rob Brydon, and Ellie Goulding – no major DW names.
The conversation moved swiftly, with no mention of Lauren’s remark regarding a past Doctor being in the series.
Later in the show, Davina detailed the finest unnasking of the series thus far, admitting she rushed on stage when the celebrity’s name was revealed since she knew them well.
Lauren’s remark may have been meaningless, but some keen-eared fans picked up on the possible spoiler.
Lucy Crewe took to X where she asked: ‘A former Doctor Who will be on #MaskedSinger?’
To which another fan responded and said ‘I noticed that, big spoiler, and nobody seems to have picked up on it.
‘Unless she meant as a guest on the panel for a week?’
We’ll have to wait a little longer before we see any prospective Doctors emerge from behind the mask, as the new season just started last week.
The first celebrity revealed was the great Dionne Warwick, whose unusual voice led to numerous individuals, including Davina, correctly guessing her.
Also taking to the stage this year and yet to be unmasked are animals Owl, Rat, Cricket, and Piranha, along with Weather, Bubble Tea, Air Fryer, Chicken Caesar, Dippy Egg, Eiffel Tower, Maypole and Bigfoot.
