The Masked Singer fans believe they have ‘worked out’ mushroom’s true identity after their first performance.

During Saturday night’s opening night of the third series, viewers watched Mushroom go up against Robobunny as they battled it out on stage.

Prior to their performance, ITV producers teased fans of the popular talent competition with a short VT which dropped a series of subtle hints as to who the celebrity could be behind the mask.

In the clip, the performer had a noticeably northern accent but when the star started to sing it was obvious to hear that they now rocked an Irish accent.

It didn’t take long before fans were buzzing with theories online as many theorised it could be stand-up comic Aisling Bea who is set to star in the new series of Doctor Who.

Viewers soon swarmed to Twitter to share their thoughts as to who could be in the costume online.

One user guessed: “Mushroom …. could it be Jane Horrocks or Aisling Bea? That ‘RIOT’ was pure Aisling for me!”

Another agreed: “I am thinking Aisling Bea could be Mushroom #TheMaskedSingerUK.”

A third chimed in with: “Mushroom’s voice when they start to sing sounds like Aisling Bea.”
