It's almost time to shout "Take it off!" as The Masked Singer continues this weekend.


Before then, viewers will be treated to eight performances from the remaining Masked Singer 2023 contestants, one of whom is Fawn.

Unlike Rubbish, who was revealed to be Snooker player Stephen Hendry, Cat and Mouse (Martin and Shirlie Kemp), Piece of Cake (Lulu) and Ghost (Chris Kamara), Fawn has done a pretty good job at concealing their idenity.

However, one celeb's name has consistently been mentioned.

All Saints Star Natalie Applenton has been tipped to be behind the mask of The Masked Singer's Fawn, and fans have their reasons for this.

As season 4 continues, read on for everything you need to know about Fawn, including all the clues that point to Natalie.

Who is Fawn? Clues, guesses and songs

Is Fawn Natalie Appleton?

After Fawn's performance in Week 2, many fans thought that the character could be All Saints star Natalie Appleton.

Fawn orders her coffee without milk, which could be a reference to the All Saints track Black Coffee, meanwhile the Sandy necklace could be a reference to the song Pure Shores.

Is Fawn Emma Bunton?

While Davina McCall guessed that Fawn might be Mel C, one of the clues in Fawn's VT could have been a reference to a different Spice Girls star.

Fawn asks for her coffee with five sugars, which could be a hint to the five-person band, and later on she says that she's "certainly not a baby" anymore, which may be a reference to Emma Bunton's nickname whilst in the girl group.

What time is The Masked Singer on?

The Masked Singer continues this weekend at 7pm on ITV1 and ITVX on Saturday 21st January.

Once all five singing hopefuls have performed, it’ll be up to the panel to do their best to work out who’s hiding behind each costume. Then, one of the contestants will be unmasked.

Last week, we saw Martin and Shirlie Kemp unmasked as the show's first-ever double act Cat and Mouse, with the pair becoming the third act to be eliminated this season.

The Masked Singer airs on Saturdays on ITV1 and ITVX. Check out more of our Entertainment coverage or visit our TV Guide and Streaming Guide for more to watch.
