The Masked Singer season 4 continued last night (22nd January), with Fawn, Jacket Potato, Rhino, Pigeon and Rubbish all taking to the stage to compete.


And while the identity of Rubbish was revealed following the character’s elimination, guesses are still coming in thick and fast as to which famous faces are behind the remaining The Masked Singers' contestant’s costumes on the ITV series.

Jacket Potato sailed through to the next round on The Masked Singer with a rendition of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, dropping various hints along the way, and some viewers are convinced they’ve worked out who is hiding behind the mask.

The clues included a possible connection to medical dramas or Doctor Who, as well as a mention of him almost taking a different career path.

The crooning carb went on to say he had “thick skin” and had gone through many auditions in their time, with the "universe" ultimately playing a part in his career.
