Masked Singer viewers 'work out' that Mushroom is comedy star after series of 'clues'

01/10/2022

THE Masked Singer viewers are convinced they have worked out who Mushroom is after a string of comedy-related "clues".

Fans have taken to Twitter in their droves to suggest that the hidden celebrity could be Catherine Tate after the character wowed the judges on Saturday.


Mushroom's identity has so far remained hidden after they stunned with a series of movie-themed performances over the weekend.

The character gave a number of hints to their identity in the show, which led fans to speculate it could be much-loved British comedian Catherine, 52.

"There's not a lot of places you won't find mushrooms," the mystery star said. "I've been lucky to be able to leave my forest and plant myself in lots of exciting places.

"It has been nice to be part of the action, and I've seen a lot of places. Honestly, I could never have imaged it all but I try to take it all in my stride."

Mushroom sang hit song There Are Worse Things I Could Do from musical Grease- leaving the judges totally stumped to her identity.

Fans of the show took to social media, however, to speculate they had worked it out as they suggested it could be The Catherine Tate Show star.

"I'm starting to think that Mushroom is Catherine Tate," one wrote, as a second agreed: "My guess is that Catherine Tate is Mushroom."

A third pointed out: "Mushroom? Catherine Tate. Naan …. Nan. Seen a lot of places I could never have imagined at all ……. Doctor Who. Career started a bit fizzy ….. she won a Perrier award."

Previously, viewers were certain that Mushroom was comedian Aisling Bea after she posted a cryptic clue on her Instagram stories.

As they sang, judge Davina McCall suggested: "She sounds Irish." While Jonathan Ross commented: "She can sing!"

Fans rushed to Twitter to make their guesses, with Sarah Millican, Jane Horrocks and Pauline McLynn all being named as potential celebrities behind the mask.

But one eagle-eyed viewer claimed that comedian Aisling Bea has 'revealed herself' – after she posted about Bjork on Instagram following Mushroom's performance.

Aisling shared a clip of Bjork accepting the award for Best International Female at the Brit Awards in 1998, adding: "I love this so much."

Writing on a Masked Singer Reddit forum, one fan said: "Not a certain celebrity referencing the artist of their first performance song on Instagram…"

Another posted on Twitter: "Aisling is now posting Bjork videos on IG after Mushroom performed a Bjork song on the masked singer…"

Another said: "The Masked Singer Mushroom is deffo Aisling Bea."

Other acts this series include Traffic Cone – who viewers have decided is DIY: SOS and I'm a Celebrity star Nick Knowles.

Nick is a long-time singer with a silky voice who has even released his own album, Every Kind of People.

However, back when he started out on TV as the traffic reporter for the Meridian region, he was "Nicky Knowles, the man who knows his cones".

That could explain why the character described themselves as the "OG TC" – or original traffic cone.
