Masked Singer Badger’s identity teased by Jonathan Ross ahead of ITV final

Jonathan Ross has teased the real identity of Badger on The Masked Singer UK ahead of the show's final on ITV tonight.

The chat show host admitted that he was unable to correctly guess the star behind the mask due to them being popular with a younger demographic.

Jonathan, 60, told the Mirror's Showbiz Editor Mark Jefferies: "Badger is one I didn’t get, and you probably wouldn’t get it either because of our age.

"I think that it’s one the younger crowd will know."

The final three contestants who will battle it out to be crowned winner of series two of The Masked Singer UK Badger, Robin and Sausage.

Keen not to spoil the guessing game, Jonathan said: "Well, I really can’t give too much more away.

"I still think it’s tough because a lot of the guesses online for people who are still to be unmasked in the final are wrong.

"Sausage has a really great voice, but Badger and Robin both have got great voices too.

"It’s interesting because even though it’s sort of a guessing game and fun, in the final it does come down to the quality of their singing."

Jonathan added: "Sausage came into her own in about week three or four, but that is partly also because they’re disguising their voices early on, or they’re trying to."

Currently bookies have Peter Andre and Ne-Yo are favourites to be Badger.

The furry contestant has teased their identity by giving clues such as that they have written poetry and referenced gardening.

Last week Jonathan guessed that Badger is former Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles.

Meanwhile, Twitter viewers are convinced that Robin is JLS singer Aston Merrygold.

Ladbrokes are offering odds of just 1/5 that the former X Factor contestant is behind the mask.

So far clues have included references to sport and boybands.

Finally Sausage's identity has had the nation guessing.

The kooky character is tipped to be Loose Women favourite Stacey Solomon, though the singer turned TV regular insists it's not her.

Speaking during last week, Jonathan said: :There has been one name I have been saying since almost the start as so many clues pointed towards her. She mentioned being a funny girl and she has been on stage in Funny Girl, it is Sheridan Smith."

Switching up his guess, he added: "I’m now convinced it is Stacey Solomon."
