Who is Jellyfish in The Masked Singer UK? We might get stung but we're going to try and find out!

The Masked Singer UK season 4 comes with a whole host of crazy new characters ready to take to the stage, and Jellyfish is shaping up to be a bit of a superstar. Rita Ora said Jellyfish was one of the characters she was most drawn to, and Davina McCall added: "Jellyfish is an extraordinary performer and has made us all feel pretty emotional" when asked if any of the singers had made her cry — does this mean Jellyfish is on track to be our next winner?

Here's what we know about Jellyfish so far, and our best guesses at some of the celebrities who could be wearing the mask.

Who is Jellyfish on The Masked Singer UK? Songs

In week one, Jellyfish performed 'Sweet Child O' Mine' by Guns N' Roses.

In week three, Jellyfish sang 'Take Me To Church' by Hozier.

Jellyfish sang 'Leave A Light On' by Tom Walker as part of her clue song in week five.

Who is Jellyfish on The Masked Singer UK? Show clues

In Jellyfish's first clues package, we saw the star on the beach, under a limbo pool next to a sign that read "how loa can you goa", which the panel took to potentially be  pointing viewers to India. 

Elsewhere, the initials M.E could be seen on the sand next a shell, possibly a hint that the new star could be named Michelle? And then the other big clue is the revelation that Jellyfish has "unexpectedly won" another competition before, so they're likely a winner of a similar competition in the past, hence why Rita guessed it could be X Factor winner, Alexandra Burke, though Drag Race judge Michelle Visage is proving to be one of the most popular theories online!

In week three, one of the clues included in Jellyfish's clue package was: "Fun fact, guys, a group of jellyfish is called a smack. That's awesome, right?" which made Rita Ora think that she could have been in a band.

There was also a shot of a cassette tape saying 'Good Magic' on the front lying on a bed of crystals, while Jellyfish said: "Something exceptionally small turned out to be my biggest encouragement." As well as a sign that read 'Ogeretla' on a beach hut which spells alter ego backwards.

In the game Clue or False, Jellyfish's clues were: "Past life regression, whoopie. I'll have none of that" and "Across time, mononymous has become synonymous with me." The audience believed clue number two was true.

The judges guesses a range of singing stars from Janet Jackson to Little Mix singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

In week five, Jellyfish performed on stage once again and we were given more clues to her identity.

Jellyfish teased that she's one to give out compliments and that she may critique, but it comes from "a place of love." Could Jellyfish be a judge of some kind? She was next seen holding a mallet.

"Although a decision was made in my career that saw me removed from the spotlight. Now that's just not on," Jellyfish hinted in her clue package.

For her clue song, Jellyfish sang one of her favorite songs — Leave A Light On' by Tom Walker.

After her performance, Jonathan Ross seemed convinced that Jellyfish was Glee star Amber Riley, who recently won The Masked Singer US season 8.

Who is Jellyfish on The Masked Singer UK? Verbal clues

The one clue we had for Jellyfish before the show started was: "They only sing when they're stinging - it's Jellyfish!"

With 'sing' and 'stinging' in the clue, we thought that this could point to one British performer in particular... none other than Sting himself! He's sung in front of many a crowd before both in his solo career and with The Police, so we thought he would be a good guess. However, given that Jellyfish performs with a powerful feminine voice, it seems highly unlikely that Sting's going to be behind the mask...

Who is Jellyfish on The Masked Singer UK? Costume clues

The most obvious answer for Jellyfish seems to be someone connected with the ocean, but that seems way too obvious for The Masked Singer team. The costume itself is full of fancy ruffles and bright colours and looks like it could find a home among the glitz and glam of Strictly Come Dancing or Dancing on Ice, so maybe a pro like Karen Hauer or Dianne Buswell could be hiding inside.

Another potential idea could come from the Jellyfish that appeared in The Masked Singer US's fourth season when a green and black Jellyfish was eventually unmasked as the pro snowboarder, Chloe Kim. Perhaps this means this Jellyfish will also be an extreme sportsperson from somewhere in the UK? 

During her performance, Jellyfish's head lit up with colorful LED lights. Could that be a clue?

We will expect to see more costume clues when Jellyfish performs again, so be sure to check back here after their performances to see if there's anything else we can use to crack their identity.

The Masked Singer UK season 4 continues Saturdays at 7 pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
