Masked Singer fans convinced Firework is EastEnders legend and I'm A Celeb contestant after 'clues'

THE Masked Singer fans have shared theories that Firework is EastEnders legend and former I'm A Celeb contestant Rita Simons.

Rita, 44, starred in EastEnders as Roxy Mitchell for ten years before leaving in 2017.

In The Masked Singer's latest episode, a reference to 'Chicago' left viewers in a tizz thanks to the famous musical of the same name.

The main character is called Roxie Hart, leaving sofa detectives at home cheering when they spotted a connection.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer mused: "I think Firework in #TheMaskedSinger is Roxy from EastEnders, can't remember her real but the clues make sense"

Another wrote: "Firework could be @OfficialRita Rita Simons – Roxy from eastenders #MaskedSinger"

One more said: "Yes!! Roxy from EastEnders!"

Rita – who is also known for taking part in I'm A Celebrity in 2018 – left EastEnders on New Year's Day five years ago along with Samantha Womack, who played her sister Ronnie Mitchell.

Their dramatic exit storyline saw the sisters drown in a swimming pool.

Rita is also the niece of the billionaire and Apprentice star Lord Sugar.
