The Masked Singer UK fans convinced Mushroom is comedy star after new cryptic clue

The Masked Singer UK fans are convinced that Mushroom is This Way Up star Aisling Bea after a new cryptic clue.

The hit ITV competition sees celebrities conceal their identities under a dramatic costume and give cryptic clues about their lives before singing on stage.

Viewers and the judges – Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Mo Gilligan – have to guess who is underneath the mask with one character asked to unveil their identity each week.

Show watchers have already been quick to predict that Mushroom could be none other than Irish star Aisling, 37, and are now "convinced" after a new cryptic clue.

During the opening episode, which aired on New Year's Day 1 January, Mushroom performed Björk hit It's Oh So Quiet, where they switched from a Northern accent in their VT to an Irish accent for the performance.

After fans were quick to predict it could be Aisling, viewers are now even more convinced after the This Way Up star posted a video of Björk accepting the Best International Female award at the 1998 BRIT Awards earlier this week.

Aisling penned alongside the video: "I love this so much. Bjork: « I am grateful grapefruit »."

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to link the two as one person commented: "Mushroom performed a Bjork song on Saturday…"

A different account put: "I actually thought @weemissbea might have been mushroom! Now I'm convinced!"

Another follower said: "Mushroom performed a Bjork song on The Masked Singer on Saturday. I thought it was you already but this makes me more certain."

While a different fan added: "Is this a Masked Singer Clue ??" followed by a crying laughing and mushroom emoji.

It comes after viewers were adamant that Mushroom is Aisling last week, who also appeared in the New Year's Day special of Doctor Who.

One person said: "Catching up on #TheMaskedSingerUK. Mushroom is Aisling Bea. Sounds just like her when she sang."

A different account put: "Mushroom is 100% Aisling Bea. #TheMaskedSingerUK #TheMaskedSinger."

Another follower tweeted Aisling directly, saying: "To think you were on @BBCOne and @ITV at the same time last night #DoctorWho #TheMaskedSingerUK."

A different show watcher put: "Definitely think Mushroom is Aisling Bea #TheMaskedSingerUK."
