The third season of The Masked Singer is getting close to the finish line, with only five famous faces buried underneath elaborate masks left in the competition after two were eliminated last weekend.


Judges Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan are all back for season 3 and some wild guesses have been thrown into the mix for each mystery contestant identity. But how close have they got with Traffic Cone?

The Masked Singer theories

Is Rick Astley Traffic Cone?

Traffic Cone appeared with a version of Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up on Sunday night’s episode of The Masked Singer (2nd January).

However, many fans have predicted a big twist and suggested that the song was chosen to throw viewers off the scent – and that it will turn out to be Rick Astley himself behind the mask.

Whether the song choice was a bluff remains to be seen, and fans will have to keep watching to find out who the famous face is.

Is Tom Jones Traffic Cone?

Tom Jones

Sir Tom is a regular fixture at ITV thanks to The Voice, so signing him up to the show would be fairly simple - if he agreed to do it, that is.

"Traffic cone is Tom Jones he sounds Welsh and the name nearly rhymes," said one fan on Twitter. That may be clutching at straws a little, but we aren't ready to rule Sir Tom out of the running just yet.

Is Aled Jones Traffic Cone?


He's known for walking in the air, but has Aled Jones also decided to walk onto the stage of The Masked Singer?

"He's not admitted it, he's not mentioned it at all, but I'm convinced that is my mate Aled Jones," said fellow singer Russel Watson on Good Morning Britain, and many fans of the show seem to agree with him. Not only that, but Aled has a tour taking to the road next month – a stint on a primetime ITV show would certainly be good for publicity.

Is Rob Brydon Traffic Cone?

Gavin & Stacey star Rob Brydon is a favourite choice for many to be under the Traffic Cone costume – he certainly has the sense of humour needed to take part in the show. Twitter seems to agree with one saying: "It is Rob Brydon! He’s had an argument with the Japanese embassy in 2011 and also had a sitcom linked to him called Candy Chops in 2015."

But are they right? The voice certainly seems to match.
