'The Masked Singer' UK fans 'crack' Robobunny's secret code

The Masked Singer UK fans are all talking about Robobunny, after claiming they've figured out which celebrity is hiding behind the elaborate costume.

So far the judges have all guessed Alfie Boe, Donny Osmond, Jason Derulo, Nile Rodgers, and Matt LeBlanc, but fans on Twitter have a different theory entirely, and it's all because of a QR clue.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that there's a QR code on Robobunny's costume and some have managed to successfully scan it to see what secret is hidden inside. 

One Twitter user shared what the code brought up, writing: "Just been watching the #maskedsinger and #robobunny had a QR code on the back which linked to this. Anyone else any ideas?"

The image reads: "My royal barcode is 20019992003" which has led fans to believe these could be dates, and one savvy Twitter user believes they've cracked the code.

Putting two and two together, linking the word "Royal" with The Royal Variety Performance, one Twitter fan said that it's very likely it could be Westlife's Mark Feehily, who performed on those dates.

They explained: "#MaskedSingerUK #maskedsinger @ThisisDavina so after spending ages trying to scan the bar code on the back of robobunny and getting a royal barcode , tracking it to the royal variety show 1993, 2000 & 2003 I'm confident it's #markfeehily."

Other fans are agreeing too, with many absolutely convinced it's Mark based on this seemingly obvious clue. But is it a red herring?

While this theory seems pretty solid at the moment, fans won't know for sure until Robobunny is eliminated from the competition and finally unmasked before the judges. 

They're currently competing against Mushroom, Panda, Rockhopper, and Traffic Cone, so it could be a while until we find out who it really is! 

The Masked Singer continues on ITV with episodes also available on-demand via ITV Hub. For full listings — see our TV Guide
