The Masked Singer UK is well and truly back after a New Year’s Day spectacular, and fans think they’ve already cracked the secret of Mushroom’s identity.
There was plenty of food for thought after their performance, with the mystery star speaking in a northern accent but appearing to sing with an irish tone.
Viewers believe the northern accent could be a clue pointing to Yorkshire-born Jodie being under the mask – while some also think that there were subtle clues to Doctor Who as well.
Mushroom made reference to ‘helping to control life’ and bringing in new life, as well as ‘wanting to be a number of things’ during the first episode.
The meaning has yet to be revealed, but fans think it could be Jodie under the mask – or in fact Aisling Bea, who is Irish and stars in Doctor Who episode Eve of the Daleks.
One viewer wrote during Mushroom’s performance of It’s Oh So Quiet by Bjork: ‘This is defo Jodie Whittaker.’
‘Mushroom has gotta be Jodie Whittaker,’ another added.
Could Mushroom really be Jodie? Only time will tell.
On the first episode of season 3, Mushroom, Robobunny, Doughnuts, Chandelier, Lionfish and Firework all took to the stage to perform, with host Joel Dommett back to preside over the unique guessing game.
Theories are already circulating, and numerous fans of The Masked Singer UK are convinced Doughnuts could be former professional footballer Michael Owen, with some saying his tone of voice is ‘unmistakeable’.
On Sunday evening, the rest of the characters taking part in the new season will perform, which will include Bagpipes, Panda, Poodle, Rockhopper, Snow Leopard and Traffic Cone.
Across eight shows a fresh cast of 12 celebrities, complete with new and ever flamboyantly elaborate character costumes, will be singing and concealing their identities as they attempt to stump viewers and the panel alike on who they could possibly be.
Masked Singer continues on Sunday at 7pm on ITV.
