THE Masked Singer on ITV has taken the country by storm as viewers are left on the edge of their seats every week for the unveiling of one celebrity.
The Fox is still on the show and fans have been weighing in on who they think is behind the big blue mask.
The Fox is a female celebrity
Who is the Fox on The Masked Singer?
We know the Fox is a female contestant who hides her identity behind a mirrored fox head mask and matching jumpsuit.
She strutted on stage during her first appearance on the show, suggesting that the mystery celeb might be one with a background in dance or theatre.
In her intro video, the Fox described herself as “street smart, nosy and vocal”, stated that she was looking forward to “rocking out” during the competition.
She went on to sing Blondie’s Call Me and followed that up with Donna Summer’s On The Radio.
She gave a clue to her identity by singing On My Own from Les Miserables.
Here’s the clues so far:
- Street smart, nosy and vocal
- Silver fox? Couldn’t say
- Feels like a rock star
- Bit of a party animal
- Connection to the East End
- Split time between town and country
- Collecting teapots for 30 years
- Clue to shoes
- Nimble and thinking on your feet
- Foxtrot with the best of them
- Waving US flag
- Broken records
- Topped the charts
- Loves dressing up, glam and clothes
- Always the last one on the dance floor
- Likes night out with the girls
- Modelled clothes
- Broken heel lead to big break
- Design reference
- Sang to a picture of Joel Dommett
The two lies and one truth given by Fox added to the confusion. Here they are for you to unravel:
- I have an award-winning body
- I’ve been on tour with the Rolling Stones
- I was one of the first stars of reality TV
So who could it be?
Fans think Denise Van Outen is the Fox
What are the latest fan theories?
Many viewers are certain that the Fox is actress, singer and dancer Denise Van Outen.
The Fox mentioned that she can be found in the East End every now and again something that fits Denise due to her role in EastEnders.
Fans also think that it is the former Strictly Come Dancing competitor because of the clue “splits her time between town and country,” as she works in London and lives in Kent.
Other followers of the show believe actress Kellie Bright could be under the mask, with one fan connecting her to the East End clue in the VT.
“I think the Fox is Kellie Bright from Eastenders. She is an Eastenders and she used to be in a show called T-Bag over 30 years ago. You heard it here first!”
Many believe The Fox could be Sam Fox, who was born in Mile End in East London and having the same surname as the name of the costume would not go amiss either.
Fans tweeted: “The fox is definitely Samantha fox!” and “Is Samantha Fox too obvious?”
And many believe she could be Carol Vorderman, with the mathematician tweeting “bluff or double bluff” after she held a photo of Joel Dommett upside down – a clue to them spending time in the jungle Down Under.
The judges selected Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Denise Van Outen, Liz McClarnon and, er, … Matt Lucas.
