Who do you think Panda Bear is?

The hints had plenty of fans convinced that the former Girls Aloud is behind the mask! Many picked up on the "direction" clues, which could be a nod to her relationship with One Direction star Liam Payne, with whom she shares a son, Bear.

Her son's name would also explain her choice of costume, and her references to Bears in the VT. During episode five, Panda Bear even went on to sing the One Direction track, The Story of my Life.

One person wrote on Twitter: "Surely Panda is Cheryl Cole? Son called Bear, sang One Direction and the father of her child is in One Direction, she was a judge on X Factor!" Another echoed this, adding: "Is Panda Cheryl Cole? Doesn't sound like her but the One Direction clues..."

A third also thought Cheryl could also be the true identity: "It's Cheryl, 100%. Moves in One Direction, sang Story Of My Life, she's a Panda which is a bear, she held up a sign saying 'I love you Bear-y much', that was to her and Liam Payne's son Bear. 100% Cheryl."

Meanwhile, episode five saw the Poodle mask sent home after being voted out by the panel and studio audience. It then transpired that singer and Keane frontman Tom Chaplin was behind the mask all along.
