Masked Singer's Fawn 'suspect' Natalie Appleton fuels speculation by meeting up with ex contestant

Natalie Appleton has done nothing to dismiss the growing speculation that she is Fawn on The Masked Singer, by meeting up with another celebrity who's starred on the show.

Since Fawn made her debut on the ITV programme last month and clues including 'black coffee' and 'Down Under' emerged from her VTs many viewers have been convinced that Fawn is All Saints star and former I'm A Celebrity contestant Natalie.

Another one word clue that sealed the deal for the die hard All Saints fans watching Masked Singer was the mention of 'wonderland.' In a riddle after her performance, Fawn said she'd taken a trip to Wonderland but her name isn't Alice.'

The Masking Singer panel haven't come close to rumbling Natalie yet, if Fawn is indeed her; with their latest guesses on the star inside the costume being Cat Deeley, Kym Marsh, Liz McLarnon and even Shania Twain, after Fawn's latest performance saw her cover Sigma & Paloma Faith track Changing.

While Natalie has been largely silent on social media since the new series kicked off on New Year's Day, her followers have been anything but, flooding old Instagram posts with their references to her being Fawn. And those kicked up a notch on Sunday when Natalie shared a photo of herself with friends including husband and Prodigy star Liam Howlett and Denise Van Outen, who was Fox on the first run of The Masked Singer back in 2020.
