Who is Octopus on The Masked Singer? Latest clues and fan theories


THE Masked Singer has got fans on tenterhooks to see which celebrities are underneath the amazing costumes.

And viewers and judges alike are still trying to guess who’s behind the bright pink, purple and yellow ensemble of Octopus.

The Octopus is still going strong on The Masked Singer

Who is the Octopus on The Masked Singer?

Octopus made their presence known with a rendition of the Little Mermaid song Part Of Your World for their first performance.

They went on to perform Bobby Darin’s Splish Splash before singing the Bond theme tune Diamonds Are Forever, which is a clue to the singer.

And in week six they belted out Lady Gaga’s I’ll Never Love Again.

In the semi final Octopus gave the “best performance” of the series with Barbra Streisand’s Somewhere, followed by Madonna’s Vogue.

Here’s the clues so far:

  • Bubbly, happy and always on the go
  • Leggy with a connection to the catwalk
  • Love for lifting weights in the gym
  • Role model for “little octopi”
  • Ready to “sashimi” into the competition
  • Feel like Naomi Campbell
  • Always learning but no apprentice
  • Record-breaking deal
  • Picture of Jason Donovan in her bag
  • Treasure on the beach
  • London travel guide
  • Wearing wellies, perfect for the beach, the Dales or in the sea
  • Known to visit dangerous locations
  • Takes some serious fish guts to do what I’ve done
  • British sense of humour
  • Job takes me to many places even back in time
  • Speaks Russian, Italian, German, Spanish, Welsh, Latin and Mandarin
  • Vegan
  • Performed to pensioners as well as royalty
  • Connection to a choir
  • Voice has been known to bring the house down – literally

The two lies and one truth given by Octopus did not help make things any clearer. Here they are for you to unravel:

  • I was discovered on a cruise ship
  • I’ve used an accent coach to prepare for this show
  • I made my first million in the cosmetics industry

In the semi-final the question asked by the judges was: “Are you a model?”

Octopus replied: “I dipped a tentacle in but it wasn’t for me.”

So who could it be?

What are the latest fan theories?

The latest fan theories on Octopus include Katherine Jenkins and Charlotte Church due to her operatic skills.

One fan is sure it’s Katherine tweeting: “Octopus is definitely Katherine Jenkins: multiple languages, she has modelled, vegan, emmerdale, dr who, opera, welsh accent, welsh link to Shirley bassey and her first celeb crush was Jason Donovan (apparently)”

A viewer tweeted: “Watching ‘The Masked Singer’ and I have no doubts that the Octopus is Katherine Jenkins.”

Another was equally convinced of someone else: “I do hope that octopus on the masked singer is the wonderful @clairesweeney. Miss hearing her beautiful voice xx”

Other suggestions include Susan Boyle and even Michelle Visage.

One fan even tweeted: “Sue Pollard Octopus the masked singer uk”

Fans thought the Octopus was Kylie Minogue, as there was subtle glimpse of a photo of Jason Donovan sticking out of a wallet during the character’s second performance.

Viewers were quick to point out that Octopus singing voice is very similar to Kylies.

Sticking with the Minogues, Kylie’s sister Dannii was also a contender, with fans pointing out that she was on Celebrity Apprentice, another of the clues given by Octopus.

Others have picked up on the Dales reference and plumped for former Emmerdale actress Sheree Murphy, who moved to Australia and also starred in Neighbours.

One fan tweeted, in the style of judge Ken Jeong: “Wait!!!! I know exactly who this is, ex footballers wife, links to emmerdale!! SHEREE MURPHY!! welcome to the masked singerrrr!!! Wooooohh!!!”

But the latest clues led to her veganism and multiple languages, with viewers veering towards Sarah Brightman and Katherine Jenkins.

The latest judges’ guesses are Charlotte Church, Katherine Jenkins, Sheree Murphy and Kym Marsh.
