Ghost was the first celebrity to be unmasked, and when his costume was removed, he amused fans by revealing he had another costume beneath — a skeleton! Eventually, his mask was taken off to reveal his identity as football commentator and Cash in the Attic presenter Chris Kamara.

Who is Ghost on The Masked Singer UK? Verbal clues

ITV originally released a short teaser for this character, which is simply: "Ghouls just want to have fun — it's Ghost!". This pun could have suggested the celebrity is a woman, with the "girls" pun, but it turned out to be a red herring because the celebrity is male.

Ghost's costume is pretty basic and some fans felt sorry for the character, saying that the cost of living crisis must have hit ITV because the costume was so plain! 

It was originally thought that the costume could point to the hit BBC series Ghosts, but it turns out it wasn't Charlotte Ritchie, Lolly Adefope, or star and co-creator Martha Howe-Douglas under the sheet!

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