The Masked Singer UK fans ‘work out’ Mushroom’s identity as series three returns

The Masked Singer UK fans think they have worked out Mushroom's identity as This Way Up star Aisling Bea.

The hit ITV competition sees celebrities conceal their identities under a dramatic costume and give cryptic clues about their lives before singing on stage.

Viewers and the judges – Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan – have to guess who is underneath the mask with one character asked to unveil their identity each week.

And during Saturday's launch episode of series three, show watchers were quick to predict that Mushroom could be none other than Irish star Aisling, 37.

During the instalment, Mushroom had to go against Robobunny in the first round where they had a Northern accent in their VT before switching to an Irish accent for their performance, leaving the judges even more confused as to who it could be.

Taking to Twitter, viewers were adamant that Mushroom is Aisling, who also appeared in the New Year's Day special of Doctor Who.

One person said: "Catching up on #TheMaskedSingerUK. Mushroom is Aisling Bea. Sounds just like her when she sang."

A different account put: "Mushroom is 100% Aisling Bea. #TheMaskedSingerUK #TheMaskedSinger."

Another follower tweeted Aisling directly, saying: "To think you were on @BBCOne and @ITV at the same time last night #DoctorWho #TheMaskedSingerUK."

A different show watcher put: "Definitely think Mushroom is Aisling Bea #TheMaskedSingerUK."

While another fan added: "#themaskedsinger #TheMaskedSingerUK the first singer is Aisling Bea. Great job. @WeeMissBea."

For series three, Joel Dommett has returned to his hosting duties on the hit ITV singing competition.

It comes after Joss Stone, who wore a Sausage costume, was crowned the winner of the 2021 series beating JLS star Aston Merrygold and singer Ne-Yo in the final.
