Series two has got us well and truly scratching our heads over this year’s The Masked Singer contestants.

So far, we’ve already seen three celebs unmasked – Sophie Ellis-Bextor was revealed to be Alien, Mel B was unmasked and most recently Martine McCutcheon was unveiled as the show’s Seahorse.

Speaking to press including RadioTimes.com, Martine McCutcheon then predicted who will win The Masked Singer as she reveals who she thinks is behind the mask.

Nine contestants now remain in the competition, and it’s proving to be pretty tough for Davina McCall, Jonathan RossRita Ora and new judge Mo Gilligan to suss out their identities.

Just this week, Kym Marsh shut down claims she’s the show’s Harlequin, writing in her OK! Magazine column: “People keep asking me, but I’m not Harlequin on The Masked Singer! I haven’t watched the show. I don’t really have time to watch telly and when I do watch it, it tends to be on catch-up. I keep saying it’s not me and everyone says, ‘That’s what someone who is on the show would say.’ But it really isn’t!”

This year the competition has become bigger and better, with a variety of guesses. Former footballer Chris Kamara recently commented on claims he could be the show’s Grandfather Clock, Lorraine Kelly quizzed Ben Shepherd about whether he could Badger and fans are convinced Lenny Henry is Blob.

So, just who exactly is that behind the mask?

Read on for everything you need to know about this year’s contestants, including all the latest clues and guesses.
