During last week's episode, the mystery celebrity dropped hints during their VT for those watching at home – and some were convinced that former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl is behind the mask.

Panda Bear told the camera that their career had gone into a "new direction" as well as holding a sign up which read: "I love you Bear-y much," perhaps a nod to their costume.

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 the stage to sing the One Direction track, The Story of my Life, to the judges and studio audience.
