As The Masked Singer UK season 3 costumes have been unveiled, there’s one luminous and orange outfit that’s hard to miss— Traffic Cone! 

Now this one is particularly hard to guess. Who could be hiding under the large bright cone complete with a white mustache and flashing beacon?

Who is Traffic Cone in The Masked Singer UK? Verbal clues...

The clue for Traffic Cone is: “Traffic Cone — they may be able to stop traffic in this high-vis high fashion costume.”

We haven’t got much to go off here, but could the high fashion costume clue hint at a model or fashion designer? Model and fashion designer Alexa Chung is known for her hilarious personality and has modeled for high fashion labels. She now has her own fashion label and has also hosted the Netflix series Next in Fashion. 

Queer Eye star and fashion expert Tan France also hosted Next in Fashion alongside Alexa Chung and he always gives knock-out fashion advice. So, could he be the one hidden under the orange bravado?

This huge traffic cone costume is truly memorable and got us thinking on who could possibly dress up as a huge traffic cone and sing on stage.

During RuPaul’s Drag Race UK season 3, legendary Drag Queen River Medway stunned viewers with her iconic traffic cone look that was inspired by a statue in her hometown. Could this costume be a tribute to her famous look? It seems like it would be an easy guess if so, but it would be a clever way to pay homage to it.

Who is Traffic Cone in The Masked Singer UK? Show clues...

“Hey, yo, I’m Traffic Cone,” is the first thing that Traffic Cone says in his clue package! “You’re looking at me like, “Why a Traffic Cone?” Easiest decision ever. The shape of a traffic cone is just like something that’s close to my heart.” This clue seemed to puzzle the judges. 

Traffic Cone went on to say, “You might think traffic cones are all about safety. But not me. I’m here to bring the party.” Davina McCall suspected that they could be a DJ, whereas Rita Ora thought they could be a rapper. 

“With the help of these threads, I reckon I’ve got a sporting chance of keeping you guessing.” As he said this, there was a red lunchbox with a pie inside and he took a swig from a flask on a construction site. Could this star have worked in construction before their fame?

Afterwards, he revealed, “But I’m hoping I’m on the road to success” as he waved a boombox to the camera. Rita came up with another idea that maybe he is a radio host, before he ended his video with: “Cos there ain’t no plan B. Get ready, cos I’m the OG TC.”

One last clue was: “I made my money taking my top off.” Who could it possibly be?

Many came up with the theory that Traffic Cone is Rick Astley himself! Whereas some were sure it was Tom Jones.
