The Masked Singer UK: Is Traffic Cone Rick Astley? Fans convinced they’ve been Rick-rolled by iconic popstar

The Masked Singer welcomed six more hidden stars during the latest episode of the series, but some fans think they know exactly who Traffic Cone is already. 

Sunday night’s programme saw the competition get even more exciting with the arrival of the rest of the secret celebrities.

But while it was another famous face’s time to depart the programme, viewers are only just getting started with the guessing game.

One act who particularly intrigued those watching was Traffic Cone, who performed a vibrant rendition of Never Gonna Give You Up, by Rick Astley.

However, as viewers got their thinking hats on, some believed they could be onto a winner, believing it was, in fact, Rick who was right there performing his own hit in a ‘double bluff’ move.

Fans flocked to social media to give similar verdicts, with one writing on Twitter: ‘Traffic cone is a Double bluff. It’s Rick Astley #MaskedSingerUK.’

‘#MaskedSingerUK pulling a ‘morten’ again is the traffic cone Rick Astley????’ added a fan.

‘The traffic cone is Rick Astley. They’re being rickrolled #MaskedSingerUK,’ joked a viewer.

Another added: ‘Traffic cone is Rick Astley. Obvs choice but they did it with Morton Harkett #MaskedSingerUK.’

 

 

 

 

 

Returning viewers may remember this has been done before, with A-Ha frontman Morten Harket trying a similar trick in season two.

Dressed as Viking, Morten performed the band’s hit song Take On Me, which seemed to throw a lot of fans off guessing it was the star.

But lo and behold, the Norwegian singer was later unmasked in the competition, giving fans quite the surprise.

So, it’s not unheard of that a performer could sing their own songs whilst taking part, possibly as a way to throw those watching off the scent.

Other guesses from fans and the panel alike included Peter Andre, Chris Kamara and former swimming champion Mark Foster.

But could it be Rick hiding underneath the costume of Traffic Cone after all?

Elsewhere, TV royalty Gloria Hunniford was the second celebrity to be unmasked after being eliminated on Sunday night.

Gloria performed Shirley Bassey’s Big Spender on the show, performing once again when she was unmasked.

Asked why she chose to take part, the 81-year-old explained: ‘I’m of a certain age and it was a challenge. It sounded like a lot of fun and I thought I’d like to try it.’

Gloria went on: ‘Even to this day only three people in my family know.  You get the point that you are so afraid of mentioning it that as time passes, you look back and think did I actually do that.’

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