Who is Fawn on The Masked Singer UK? She came in third place on The Masked Singer UK season 4 — but did you guess who was under the mask?

Once again The Masked Singer returned to our screens, meaning there were a whole host of crazy characters entertaining us each Saturday night.

Here's what we know about Fawn including which celebrity was hiding under the costume...

Who is Fawn on The Masked Singer UK?

All Saints singer Natalie Appleton was revealed to be Fawn, confirming fans suspicions from early in the show.

After her reveal the 90s sensation said: “I loved fooling you guys, it was such a buzz. I had the best time, it’s been amazing. I do recommend.”

She also added that she enjoyed Mo Gilligan thinking that she was Country superstar  Shania Twain during the competition.

Who is Fawn on The Masked Singer UK? Songs

In week one, Fawn sang 'Beauty and the Beast' from Beauty and the Beast.

Fawn performed 'Into the Groove' by Madonna in week four.

Fawn's clue song was 'Ironic' by Alanis Morrisette in week five.

In week six, Fawn sang 'Changing' by Sigma feat. Paloma Faith.

Fawn sang 'Tomorrow' from Annie and 'Be the One' by Dua Lipa in the semi-final.

For the final, Fawn sang 'Hopelessly Devoted to You' by Olivia Newton-John and 'When She Loved Me' by Sarah McLachlan with Aled Jones as Traffic Cone.

But in week 2, following their performance of Beauty and the Beast, clues started to get a bit more specific and they told the audience: "I live in a cottage and not in a palace, I've visited Wonderland but my name isn't Alice."

Clearly, we could rule out any Alice's based on the most recent verbal clue, but it was still quite cryptic and we had to pay attention to uncover some more key information. The cottage clue could have pointed to them living in the countryside or somewhere more rural.

In addition to this, in their VT they mentioned "black coffee" and "sand" which led some fans to guess that Fawn could be All Saints singer Nicole Appleton, as this could be a reference to their iconic song Pure Shores.

In week four, Fawn teased in her clue package: "Now, my home may be the forest but it was in a topsy-turvy land that I discovered a very heavy silvery-white metal." 

There was also a suitcase saying "Precious Cargo" on the front, that she's won "a lot of other trophies" and a bowling pin.

Other clues included a jar of jam and marmalade and that her aspirations were always much simpler.

For her Clue or False, the two clues were: "Let me tell you what I 'herd', they're saying you might know me from the movies" and "They're saying to take care moving around the festival. Don't want to break a leg!" The audience thought clue number two was true. 

Jonathan Ross guessed singer Anne-Marie as Fawn, due to her karate skills and Davina McCall suggested former EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa.

Fawn took to The Masked Singer UK stage once again for week five and we got cracking on trying to work out her identity thanks to the clue package.

In her clue package, Fawn was seen following signs that said: 'Short Road', 'Long Road' and 'Even Longer Road.'

Fawn then hinted that she knows a lot about "travelling great distances" and that she can take three or four flights a day. We then saw a number 98 on the door.

"I'm no international woman of mystery, but this isn't the first disguise I've worn. It's true I have been in the background in my early career. But I've also taken the lead," Fawn said.

We then saw a stuffed bird in a glass box with the word 'AL' written underneath, while Fawn revealed that "all the world's a stage." Could she be in the theatre?

Fawn performed her clue song which was 'Ironic' by Alanis Morrisette and was accompanied on stage by two hedgehogs and a display of butterflies. 

The judges guessed LeAnn Rimes, Kelle Bryan, Paula Radcliffe and Lindsay Lohan.

Fawn kicked off her clue package in week 6 with: "Have you heard the one about the deer who won the lottery? She felt like a million bucks haha!" 

She also teased that she HAD always been the joker in the pack and that "being able to take the mickey out of others is a real testament to any friendship."

We then saw two makeup artists with devil horns and angel wings on, while Fawn said that she WAS lucky to be surrounded by nothing but love and support.

'TOTP' was also carved into a tree and Mo Gilligan instantly spotted that it meant Top Of The Pops — could she be a singer?

Fawn's prop clue was a name tag from The Weakest Link.

Fawn returned to perform again in the semi-final, giving us another opportunity to try and guess her identity. 

Her first clue was: "Remember, remember the 1st of November," as she wandered past a beach chair with inflatable balls and palm trees.

"I've supplied many clues for you. I could even give you 12 million more," she hinted once again.

After her performance, the judges guessed Shania Twain, Jenny McCarthy, Myleene Klass, Suzanne Shaw and Billie Piper.

'Platinum' and 'Rankin' were also clues given by Fawn. Some fans believed that TV star Suranne Jones was behind the mask thanks to a clue they believed was about Gentleman Jack and the fact that she was also photographed by famous portrait photographer Rankin for the BAFTAs.

Who is Fawn on The Masked Singer UK? Verbal clues

The first verbal clue given to us was simply: "They were Fawn to be wild - it's Fawn!"

Originally, we speculated that Fawn could be singer Marc Anthony, due to the fact he rescued a baby deer in 2020. But now we know for sure it's not the superstar singer!

Who is Fawn on The Masked Singer UK? Costume clues

There are no additional clues on the costume that give away any ideas as to who is behind the mask so far, but one star who has a special connection with deer is singer and TV personality Stacey Solomon, so she's definitely a possibility. 

We originally suspected singer and TV personality Stacey Solomon because of her special connection with deer, but it was actually Natalie Appleton behind the mask!

Episodes of The Masked Singer UK are available to watch on ITVX.
