Who is Octopus on The Masked Singer? Latest fan theories

ITV's hit show The Masked Singer has got fans buzzing to see which celebrities are underneath the amazing costumes.

And viewers and judges alike are still trying to guess who's behind the bright pink, purple and yellow ensemble of Octopus. Here's the rumours…

Who is the Octopus on The Masked Singer?

Octopus made their presence known with their rendition of the Little Mermaid song Part Of Your World for their first performance.

They went on to perform Bobby Darin's Splish Splash before singing Diamonds are Forever, which is a clue to the singer.

Here's the clues so far:

  • Bubbly, happy and always on the go
  • Leggy with a connection to the catwalk
  • Love for lifting weights in the gym
  • Role model for "little octopi"
  • Ready to "sashimi" into the competition
  • Feel like Naomi Campbell
  • Always learning but no apprentice
  • Record-breaking deal
  • Picture of Jason Donovan in her bag
  • Treasure on the beach
  • London travel guide
  • Wearing wellies, perfect for the beach, the Dales or in the sea
  • Known to visit dangerous locations
  • Takes some serious fish guts to do what I've done

The two lies and one truth given by Octopus did not help make things any clearer. Here they are for you to unravel:

  • I was discovered on a cruise ship
  • I've used an accent coach to prepare for this show
  • I made my first million in the cosmetics industry

So who could it be?

What are the latest fan theories?

Fans think the Octopus is Kylie Minogue, as there was subtle glimpse of a photo of Jason Donovan sticking out of a wallet during the character's second performance.

Viewers have also been quick to point out that Octopus’ singing voice is very similar to Kylie’s.

One fan said: "Only just started watching tonight's the masked singer. Octopus sounded like Kylie Minogue to me!"

Sticking with the Minogues, Kylie's sister Dannii is also a contender, with fans pointing out that she was on Celebrity Apprentice, another of the clues given by Octopus.

Some fans have gone for other Aussie singers such as Natalie Imbruglia and Delta Goodrem.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 winner Courtney Act is on the minds of many viewers due to her friendship with Apprentice candidate Andrew Brady, as well as the Australian link with the Jason Donovan photo.

The 37-year-old has added fuel to the fire by tweeting an emoji of an octopus, to which a fan replied: " I done said the octopus on masked signer was Courtney Act".

Others have picked up on the Dales reference and plumped for former Emmerdale actress Sheree Murphy, who moved to Australia and also starred in Neighbours.

One fan tweeted, in the style of judge Ken Jeong: "Wait!!!! I know exactly who this is, ex footballers wife, links to emmerdale!! SHEREE MURPHY!! welcome to the masked singerrrr!!! Wooooohh!!!"

The latest judges' guesses are Charlotte Church, Gemma Arterton, Myleene Klass and Gemma Atkinson.
