Take it off! Take it off! The Masked Singer is back with a brand new season, bringing with it musical guessing games galore.


This year, the show has welcomed its very first double act, Cat & Mouse onto the contestant line-up, and the pair will be returning to the stage for another performance this weekend.

They’ll be appearing alongside Jellyfish, Phoenix, Knitting and Otter.

When it comes to working out the duo’s true identity, two contestants means double the mystery, and it’s fair to say that the celebrity panel (consisting of Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall) is seriously stumped.

To get you up to speed on all the clues so far, here’s everything we know about Cat & Mouse.

The Masked Singer season 4 theories

Are Cat & Mouse Tom and Giovanna Fletcher?

Duos are twice as difficult to guess on The Masked Singer, and it feels like the panel are less certain when it comes to who is hiding behind Cat & Mouse's costumes - they can't even decide whether the pair are a romantic couple, or a working partnership.

Still, Ora's guess of married couple Tom and Giovanna Fletcher could have potential, as the reference to spinning a tale could allude to the pair's writing careers, while the mouse trap which appeared in the VT could link to Giovanna's time on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

Another theory offered by eagle-eyed viewers is that the duo could be another married pair: Martin and Shirlie Kemp.

The riddle referring to "stealing" cheese could point towards Steal, the title of a song by Martin's group Spandau Ballet, and the line "no stranger to legalities" could hark back to his time as a talent show judge on Shine.

Plus, the five jars of spice might be a nod towards Shirlie's cameo appearance in the music video for Mama by the Spice Girls.
