After the first episode, Heather Small was revealed to be the show’s Chandelier, while Gloria Hunniford was unmasked as the show’s Snow Leopard.

Speaking about her time on the series, Hunniford revealed her mask almost fell off on The Masked Singer.

One of The Masked Singer season three contestants who will be hoping to keep their mask on when they return to the stage tonight (Saturday 8th January 2022) for the show’s special Movie Night episode is Lionfish.

Lionfish left The Masked Singer judges and viewers at home baffled as to their identity after their first performance, with guesses at the time ranging from Strictly’s Craig Revel Horwood, to American TV presenter Ellen DeGeneres.

More recently, some fans seem convinced that comedian Eddie Izzard could be behind the mask thanks to a language clue.

He might have kept us guessing on The Masked Dancer, but viewers seem pretty convinced Lionfish is Craig Revel Horwood. Extravagant Lionfish may have given himself away by suggesting he’s famous for his barbs – just like our Craig on Strictly Come Dancing.
