While fans and bookies alike are determined that JLS star Aston Merrygold is Robin, bookies also believe that Blob is Lenny Henry while Aha star Morten Harket is Viking, and songstress Sheridan Smith is Sausage. 

Other popular guesses for Sausage include Stacey Solomon and Billie Piper - what do you think? Meanwhile, there are also odds for Olly Murs or Nicky Byrne being Robin, and Jack Whitehall and Romesh Ranganathan as Blob.

The last episode saw comedian and actor John Thomson unveiled as Bush Baby. Before exiting the show, John – best known for his roles on Cold Feet and Coronation Street – proceeded to give one final performance, singing 'Release Me' by Engelbert Humperdinck.

Could Morten Harket be Viking?

Following his unveiling, John said: "I thought the panel did a good job at guessing but I'm pretty sure I completely fooled them until my reveal. There were some very strange guesses from Rishi Sunak to Gino D'Acampo. I put on an Australian accent to deliberately confuse them."
