Which celebrity contestants have been revealed in season four?

Returning to our screens for the fourth season of The Masked Singer, host Joel Dommett introduced the first six characters battling it out on stage. As Knitting took on Jellyfish and Otter competed against Ghost, we also saw Cat and Mouse singing against Phoenix, but only five could go through to the next round.

Following the judge's decision, Ghost was revealed as the first contestant to leave the competition, but who was behind the mask? None other than ex-footballer and commentator, Chris Kamara. 

As we headed into the second week, our next round of contestants saw Potato, Fawn, Rubbish, Pigeon, Piece of Cake and Rhino giving some incredible performances, but ultimately it was Piece of Cake that had to remove their mask. Unveiled as Scottish singer and actress Lulu, both the judges and fans couldn't have been more surprised.

"Finally caught up with Masked Singer and Phoenix is 100% Ricky Wilson! I've seen that man live and those notes are definitely his! If I'm wrong I'll be very surprised," declared one. 

A second penned: "Very late to the game but finally catching up on Masked Singer with the kids. If Phoenix isn't Ricky then there's someone who could stand in for him on recording sessions and gigs."
