Once again The Masked Singer is back on our screens, meaning there are a whole host of crazy characters entertaining us each Saturday night.

Here's what we know about Cat and Mouse including which celebrities were hiding under the costume...

Who is Cat and Mouse on The Masked Singer UK?

Cat and Mouse were the third celebrities to be unmasked on The Masked Singer UK season 4 and their identities were revealed to be music legends Martin Kemp and his wife Shirlie Kemp.

Their son, radio host Roman Kemp shared his stunned reaction to his parents being unveiled on the show with numerous tweets and a video of him shouting "I knew it!" to his sister Harley Moon Kemp and mum when the grand moment was revealed on TV.

Speaking about why they decided to do the show, the husband and wife duo joked that they wanted to embarrass Roman, who believed that they were on a romantic getaway at the time and didn't know they had taken part.

Shirlie said: "No this is going to embarrass him. Most people say they are doing it for their kids."

Who is Cat and Mouse on The Masked Singer UK? Verbal clues

The first verbal clue we had for Cat and Mouse was: "They’re feline good - Its Cat and Mouse," which didn't give much away.

One of our guesses included the nation's favourite pair of TV presenters, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, especially since Mouse had been shown to be comically shorter than Cat — a joke that Ant often brings up during their presenting stints as Dec is shorter than him. 

Other iconic TV double acts we thought of were Strictly Come Dancing presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman and hilarious presenting duo Dick and Dom. So everyone was stunned to discover that Martin and Shirlie Kemp were under the masks!

The Cat and Mouse costume showed Cat dressed as a detective with a magnifying glass and Mouse dressed as a robber, complete with a SWAG bag of all their stolen goods.

We also guessed TV and music presenters Sam and Mark to be the masked duo due to one of the games they used to host being called Copycats. As well as popular father and son duo Bradley Walsh and his son Barney.

The Masked Singer UK 2023 airs on ITV on Saturday evenings at 7 pm.
