Masked Singer UK fans say Doughnuts is 'painfully obvious' former footballer

Doughnuts on The Masked Singer UK has had fans divided for weeks, over the true identity of the celebrity under the mask on the ITV series.

From football favourites to other stars, viewers have been trying to figure out who it is.

But on Saturday night, many fans were convinced they had cracked the case for once and for all, and that they now knew who was under the mask.

The clues included the famed football anthem 'Sweet Caroline', which Doughnuts belted from the stage, as well as having greeted "princes and dignitaries".

Doughnuts said: "My career has seen my reach some dizzying heights. You're not going to believe some of the opportunities I've had."

Viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on who could be under the mask - and everyone was guessing former footballer Michael Owen.

Taking to Twitter, one fan commented: "Doughnuts is without a doubt Michael Owen."

Another said: "Doughnut is @themichaelowen and it's so painfully obvious."

A third chimed in to write: "Doughnuts has to be Michael Owen."

Several viewers said the voice of Doughnuts was even similar, writing: "Doughnuts voice isn't much different - Michael Owen!!"

Doughnuts performed as one of eight contestants competing to stay on the show, ahead of the next elimination.

Last week, Pat Cash became the fourth celebrity to be unmasked as it was revealed he was Bagpipes on the show.

Panellist Jonathan Ross was convinced it was fellow tennis player John McEnroe behind the mask, and was stunned to find out he was wrong.

Will Young was third to be unveiled a week earlier, after fans correctly worked out he was Lionfish on the ITV series.

This followed the first two eliminations of the series earlier in the month, with Loose Women star Gloria Hunniford being unmasked as Snow Leopard in episode two, and singer Heather Small revealed to be Chandelier in the very first episode.

Viewers have been predicting for weeks who the mystery celebrities are underneath the remaining costumes.

On Saturday nigh’s show, it was Panda, Poodle, Firework, Mushroom, Doughnuts, Traffic Cone, Rockhopper and Robobunny taking to the stage.

As ever, Jonathan and his fellow panellists Rita Ora, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall took it in turns to predict who was under the masks, as host Joel Dommett also tried to work it all out.

The Masked Singer UK airs Saturdays at 7pm on ITV.
