The Masked Singer UK has come back with a bang, featuring a new batch of celebrities trying to hoodwink the judging panel.
Presented by Joel Dommett, the ITV reality series sees 12 stars, whose identities are concealed by extravagant costumes, take the stage and belt out a tune.
Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall must then attempt to guess which famous faces are hiding behind those outfits, with a performer being eliminated every week.
However, the foursome aren’t completely left in the dark as they are given clues about who the mystery singer is, rather than just relying on their voice alone.
With that in mind, what clues have been given about Jacket Potato – and who could they be…?
Several names have been thrown into the mix as possible candidates for Jacket Potato, including…
Jacket Potato constantly makes references to baking, leading Mo to believe outgoing Great British Bake Off host Matt Lucas.
This theory is given further clout over the clue of being a ‘foil’ or sidekick, with Matt having worked with David Walliams for many years on the likes of Little Britain.
Jack Whitehall certainly has the performing credentials, having toured extensively as a stand-up and acted in shows including Bad Education.
The moniker Jacket Potato could also be a nod towards his first name, while the dancehall clues could be a play on his surname.
A popular theory emerging on social media is that Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora is behind Jacket Potato.
The rock legend certainly has the talent as he wrote all the band’s hits, along with Jon Bon Jovi, and has also enjoyed a successful career as a solo artist.
Jonathan suggested Jacket Potato could be Professor Brian Cox, due to the stethoscope in a clue package and him being ‘a doctor of the sciences.’
The physicist also certainly has a lot of knowledge about a different kind of ‘stars’, so could he be a secret vocalist? Jonathan did point out that he used to play keyboard in a hit band…
If the clue about Jacket Potato being a ‘pussycat’ is true, Ray Winston is certainly a possibility.
Davina noted that he is known for playing tough guys on-screen, but he’s actually a real softie underneath.
We know him as Alfie Moon, but Shane Richie is a very popular guess online.
The EastEnders actor has spoken about previously being approached to star in Doctor Who, and viewers are almost certainly that they can pick up his voice.
Jacket Potato has proved that there has to be some sort of rocker under the costume, with the performer picking up the guitar in a recent performance.
There’s been countless references to a ‘Jack’, which has got some people convinced the clues have to point to actor and Tenacious D front man Jack Black.
The Masked Singer continues on ITV on Saturday at 7pm.
