The singing continues this weekend on The Masked Singer and viewers can expect to see Knitting showing off their vocal skills once again.


They'll compete againts the seven other remaining contestants Jellyfish, Phoenix, Otter, Fawn, Jacket Potato, Pigeon and Rhino.

So far, Knitting has done a pretty good job keeping their identity under wraps.

However, some fans think they might have sussed out who is behind the mask, with the likes of Emma Bunton, Kym Marsh, and even Doctor Who actress Jodie Whitaker tipped.

As they take to the stage again, read on for everything you need to know about Knitting - one of The Masked Singer 2023 contestants.

The Masked Singer season 4 theories

Is Knitting Kym Marsh?

Fans think actress Kym Marsh could be behind the mask of Knitting.

Following her performance, one took to Twitter to share their thoughts, comparing Knitting's voice to that of the former Hear'Say singer.

Is Knitting Konnie Huq?

Blue Peter presenters are famed for their crafting abilities, so could Knitting be Konnie Huq? Twitter users have also pointed out that the TV star, who ended up being the CBBC show's longest-serving female presenter, was also the 26th Blue Peter host, which fits in well with Knitting's riddle.

Plus, Magpie was the name of a children's show designed to be a competitor to Blue Peter, and last year Huq presented a documentary all about kids TV.

That still doesn't explain the links to Lancaster though, so we'll have to tune in at the weekend for further hints.

What time is The Masked Singer on?

Season 4 of The Masked Singer will continue on ITV1 and ITVX on Saturday 14th January at 7pm, when we'll see if Knitting can pull off another impressive performance - or whether they'll get in a tangle and drop a few stitches.

At the end of the episode, a third celebrity will be unmasked, after Chris Kamara and Lulu were previously revealed to be Ghost and Piece of Cake respectively.

The following episode will see Fawn, Jacket Potato, Rhino, Rubbish and Pigeon performing for the second time.

The contestants will be hoping to follow in Natalie Imbruglia's footsteps, after singer won last year as the show's Panda.
