The Masked Singer UK season 3 fans have linked Traffic Cone to a singer who had an embarrassing moment in front of The Queen at a Royal Variety Performance.

After much speculation as to who Traffic Cone could be, Bradley Walsh, Rob Brydon and Alexander Armstrong being a few famous faces that have been named, fans are now convinced that Welsh singer Aled Jones is under the mask.

This comes as fans reckon they've used roman numerals to crack who Rockhopper is!

Last week, the episodes teased us with double the clues and eagle-eyed judge Davina McCall spotted a new addition to Traffic Cone’s costume with the word “Believe” written on the side.

Combined with the clue of: "I got that diamond bling, yo. And a royally sick cut,” which the judges and viewers reckon was a reference to the Royal Variety Performance, it only confirmed people’s theories further that it was Aled Jones.

Many fans on social media used their detective skills to work out the clues, and many mentioned that Aled Jones has an album called “One Voice: Believe” which the “believe” clue could be talking about. One fan also said that Aled Jones forgot the lyrics for the song “Memory” while singing in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.

Traffic Cone’s singing voice is also a give away according to fans, as well as the clue: “Everyday I feel 'hashtag blessed,'” which viewers think is a hint at him being a presenter on Songs of Praise.
