Published: Saturday, 13th February 2021 at 7:00 pm

It's time for the The Masked Singer finals, meaning we'll finally get to find out who is behind the costumes of the three remaining contestants.


We've already seen nine celebrities unveiled on the show, including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Mel B, Martine McCutcheon, Glenn Hoddle, John Thomson, Sir Lenny Henry and Morten Harket.

And during the semi-finals, presenter Sue Perkins and singer Gabriele were revealed in a double unmasking.

Following her stint, Gabrielle revealed she almost quit The Masked Singer, telling "I was convinced it was going to end my career."

When it comes to Sausage, over 73 per cent of fans said that actress Sheridan Smith is behind the belting bratwurst in a poll, while many believe Aston Merrygold is the show's Robin.

Badger seems to have the judges Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and viewers at home with multiple names being touted.

From US singer Ne-Yo, to UK gardener Alan Titchmarsh and former Hollyoaks actor Will Mellor, we just can't seem to work out who is behind the mask.

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