The Masked Singer’s Rita Ora faces the wrath of fuming celebrity after ‘rude’ claims he is Doughnuts


THE Masked Singer judge Rita Ora has left Radio X host Chris Moyles fuming after claiming he is the character Doughnuts.

The stack of glazed treats is one of the weaker singers left in the competition, but his colourful outfit and lively performances have endeared him to viewers.

While many think it is a footballer behind the mask, Rita went left-field and suggested it was the former Radio 1 man.

Reflecting on her suggestion on his show yesterday, Chris said: "'Mmm, is it Chris Moyles?!' Shove it! How rude! [does impression of Doughnuts singing].

"I don’t think that’s even a famous person, I think that’s somebody trapped. It’s one of the staff from a dress rehearsal the other day trying to get out of the stupid costume.

"Just to clarify then, in case you haven’t worked out from what I was saying… It might be me…"

Chris, who has lost six weight in recent years, joked it was sizest for him to be considered as Doughnuts.

He added: "I’ve never been so insulted!"

At the weekend, Dougnuts performed Spice Up Your Life.

There were plenty of clues pointing to the character being former England and Liverpool star Owen – but many insisted they didn't need any.

One wrote: "Just from the voice alone you can tell it’s Michael Owen" while another tweeted: "10000000% Michael Owen!"

But for those who do need convincing, there was a nod to Stoke, the city where he ended his Premier League career between 2012 and 13.

At one point there was a reference to "stoking a fire" while the character was shown pouring out golden syrup.

One fan wrote: "It is definitely Michael Owen (footballer, played for Stoke, won the golden boot)."

The Golden Boot is the prize awarded to a tournament's top goalscorer and Owen won it twice in the Premier League.
