The masked singer is back on our screens tonight, and within minutes of the show’s debut, fans believe they’ve guessed one of the celebrities behind the disguises.
It might not be Valentine’s Day for another month, but the masked singers are already getting in the mood with a “love special” episode of the show.
In the show’s usual eccentricity, the lineup of colorful celebrity costumes tonight (Saturday, January 15) includes a traffic cone, a piper and a poodle.
Even some of the judges embraced the ‘love mania’ theme, with Jonathan Ross sporting a showy leopard print shirt and Davina McCall a stunning red dress with puff sleeves.
Singer Rita Ora and comedian Mo Gilligan also guess the celebrities, bringing the jury to four.
And it’s the “Rockhopper” penguin, who hinted that he “likes to inspire and support” who fans think they guessed tonight.
The penguin sang a moving version of Amy Winehouse’s Love Is A Losing Game, which audiences couldn’t get enough of.

Mo Gilligan commented that the singer behind the costume had a “beautiful voice”, while Davina said the “beautiful” song “clearly came from the heart”.
And according to fans, that haunting voice apparently belongs only to Alesha Dixon.
“Penguins don’t live in the arctic rockhopper xx and you are Alesha Dixon #maskedsinger“, said a confident viewer on Twitter.
Another confident viewer simply wrote, “Rockhopper alesha dixon.”
“The Rockhoppers voice is so familiar…it bothers me,” added someone else who wasn’t so sure.
The judges couldn’t decide either, with one guessing that Swedish singer Robyn was behind the disguise “because of the accent”.
“Rockhopper definitely has some sort of accent, sounds Scandinavian to me,” one fan agreed on Twitter.
We won’t know until the mask falls…
