Comedian Rob Beckett has been winding up fans in recent days claiming on social media he is The Masked Singer UK’s Traffic Cone but has now reportedly received messages from the true culprit.

Traffic Cone is one of the remaining secret celebrities on The Masked Singer, after Poodle was unmasked as Keane’s Tom Chaplin on Saturday night.

However, one person who previously claimed to be appearing on the show is Rob, who’s teased fans through a stream of suspicious tweets in recent days.

However, he has now backed down and denied being behind the mask, writing on Twitter: ’Right so I have a confession. I’m not Traffic Cone. It’s a wind-up.

‘However, it’s got so out of hand the actual Traffic Cone has angrily messaged me telling me to stop saying I’m traffic cone.

‘So for the record, I’m not Traffic Cone. But I now know who is.’

Getting in on the joke himself, Richard Osman responded: ‘Thanks Rob, I appreciate it.’

Morning Live presenter Rav Wilding couldn’t resist a similar comment, writing: ‘Cheers Rob sorry to be a bore mate but didn’t want to ruin it. Thanks again.’


We don’t know who to believe at this point…

Some of Rob’s followers think he’s only digging himself further into a hole, with one responding: ‘That’s what Traffic Cone would say…

A fan cheekily added: ‘Sounds like a diversion tactic, exactly what a traffic cone is known for.’

Another reckoned: ‘This is a bluff within a bluff within a bluff that is bluffing about being a bluff…

Many fans believe Traffic Cone is a comedian after one of their two truths or a lie was: ‘It’s often been said that I’m a stand-up fella.’

But after Rob seemingly ruled himself out, who could it really be behind the mask?

Names who are tipped to posing as Traffic Cone include Welsh singer and presenter Aled Jones, hitmaker Rick Astley and TV star Peter Andre.

He first seemed to confirm he was appearing on the show last weekend, putting out a tweet that read: ‘Just send this out once I’ve been unmasked’

‘Thanks for all the support being the Traffic Cone I absolutely loved it. Great show. The kids couldn’t believe it was me.’

A few days later he wrote: ‘Look itv are p****d off with me. The tweet was an accident. I’ve been quiet the last few days.

‘They still won’t pay me so I don’t care anymore. I’m traffic cone. Don’t give a s**t if it’s a spoiler. #maskedsinger.’

But has Rob just created a super elaborate lie to fool fans? We’re not sure at this point.

The Masked Singer continues next Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
