The clues around Hedgehog's indentity so far have hinted that Hedgehog is already a performer, as his "natural habitat" is the stage. "I once had a job that meant I died at 8.30 every night," he revealed, while visual clues in episode three suggested a connection with musicals like Phantom of the Opera, Cats and Hairspray.

Viewers at home believe Hedgehog could be West End stars Michael Ball or Alfie Boe, who have appeared in Les Miserables. Other guesses include comedian Jason Manford, however, he denied this on Friday during an appearance on Good Morning Britain, and 2007 X Factor star Rhydian Roberts.

Octopus gave clues that suggested she could be a model as she said that despite all her arms, she’s "equally leggy" and has spent time on the catwalk. She also revealed that she "loves weight training". Celebrities believed to be the Octopus include former Dancing On Ice star and model Caprice, and Ashley Roberts. One fan tweeted: "Ashley was in the Waitress musical = weight training? Cat walk! Pussycat! Ashley is the Octopus!!!"

Holly Willoughby also recently responded to rumours that she's behind Octopus. After being quizzed by fellow This Morning presenter, Kem Cetinay, Holly said: "Guys this is really nice of you but you've all heard me sing right? Octopus has got a really good voice!" However, the mum-of-three then went on to give a more elusive answer saying: "You know what, I'm not going to confirm or deny, I'm just going to leave it there," before teasing, "I get up to a lot in my spare time..."

Queen Bee caused quite the stir after she performed on the first show with her rendition of Sia's Alive going down a treat with viewers and the judges. Describing herself as "no longer a princess" and a "queen", the secret celebrity admitted she started her career "quite young". In episode three, she revealed that she was a "lawmaker" and had a background in activism.

Nicola Roberts and Charlotte Church have been the most popular guesses for her identity, but the latter has hit back at claims it's her under the mask. Taking to Twitter, Charlotte wrote: "I'm definitely not the bee, repeat NOT the bee." She also shared a clip of herself singing live, adding: "This is my voice singing live folks. NOTHING LIKE THE BEE. I've spent my Saturday night on my hands and knees scrubbing my kitchen floor like a 1950s housewife on purple hearts!"

The final of The Masked Singer is on Saturday at 7pm, ITV.
