The Masked Singer: Who is Cricket? All clues so far
The Masked SingerITV’s most surreal competition series, is back.
Joel Dommett hosts, with judges Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan doing their best detective work to guess which celebrities are behind the weird and wonderful outfits.
This year’s participants hope to join the previous ones Masked Singer UK winners including Nicola Roberts, Joss Stone, Natalie Imbruglia and Charlie Simpson.
One of the hopefuls is disguised as Cricket – here’s what we know about them so far…
In an ITV press pack released ahead of the series, Cricket said: “I love the fun content of The Masked Singer, I could be creative!”
In the first week of the singing show, some judges were unconvinced by Cricket’s performance, as he walked onto the stage holding his back and walking slowly, indicating that he may be an older contestant.
Gilligan suspected that Cricket might be Jamaican musician and TV personality Levi Roots, while McCall thought that Cricket was pretending to be older, and suspected that this might be the case. Repair shop host Jay Blades.
Ross thought that because a scoreboard in the pre-recorded segment showed the number 60, it might indicate the age of the celebrities. That’s why Ross suspected it was cricketer and former England captain David Gower, who is 66.
Charlie Simpson, who was a guest judge on the first episode of the new series after winning the competition last year, guessed it was English cricketer Stuart Broad because he is 6ft tall and about the same size as Cricket.
Last year, Charlie Simpson was crowned the winner of The Masked Singer UK.
During his second performance on Saturday (January 13), Cricket performed their version of SNAP!’s 1992 song “Rhythm is a Dancer” to loud applause from the judges and audience.
Mo Gilligan, Olly Murs (who judged in Rita Ora’s absence) and Jonathan Ross all agreed that Cricket was a musician and Fame Academy star Lemar.
Fans agreed, pointing out that not only were the vocals similar, but the cricket background of Cricket’s video package could reference Frankfurt’s Lemar Cricket Club.
Elsewhere in the earlier clues, Cricket seemed to put on a faux-posh accent and continue using the word cheerful.
However, Davina McCall warned her colleagues not to jump to conclusions and explained The Masked Singer often fools viewers.
The Busted star, who secretly performed as Rhino throughout the competition, shot to fame with the boy band behind the hits ‘Year 3000’ and ‘Crashed The Wedding’.
In the final he defeated Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson, who was disguised as Phoenix.
The Masked Singer airs on ITV on Saturday evening, with the final expected to take place in February.
