ITV's The Masked Dancer continues this weekend, with the remaining five contestants taking to the ITV stage once more in the hopes of winning season 2.


Still in the running to be crowned this year's winner is Odd Socks, who'll be going up against Sea Slug, Scissors, Pearly King and Onomatopoeia this weekend.

It comes after Bake Off's Liam Charles became the latest contestant to be unmasked on the show as Candlestick.

So far, Odd Socks has managed to keep their identity under wraps, but that hasn't stopped the guessing with fans convinced that it's The Voice UK presenter Emma Willis or even Maisie Smith or Jessie Wallace behind the bundle of dirty washing.

As The Masked Dancer season 2 continues, read on for everything you need to know about Odd Socks - one of the contestants in the season 2 line-up.

The Masked Dancer theories

Is Odd Socks Emma Willis?

The judging panel believe that Emma Willis could be the famous face behind the Odd Socks costume. During the clue package for Odd Socks, they mentioned that their feet had carried them "in one big circle" - which could be a reference to Channel 4 reality show The Circle, which was presented by Willis.

There were also hints that Odd Socks has had several different jobs, which has many fans agreeing with the judges about the Emma Willis theory.

Some fans also thought Willis might be competing against her musician husband Matt Willis, with one fan saying, "Imagine if Cactus was Matt Willis and Odd Socks was Emma Willis."

In an exclusive poll, Masked Dancer fans think the clues point towards Emma Willis, with an overwhelming 71.6 per cent voting for her.
