Who is Sausage?

Fans have thought Sausage could be Sheridan Smith or Stacey Solomon from the start (Picture: ITV)

Fans have been convinced that Stacey Soloman is behind the brilliant Sausage costume since the start of the show.

But some strange happenings on Sheridan Smith's Wikipedia page has left eagle-eyed fans suspicious that she could be Sausage instead.

On her page, it had been edited to state that she had starred on the Masked Singer as Sausage, but has since been changed. A note on the edit history now reads "changed she WAS sausage to she is suspected to be".

While Wikipedia is not a 100% reliable source, this edit suggests that judges and fans predictions that Sausage is Sheridan could be true after all!

So far we’ve been told that Sausage has a "strong connection to the beach and the coast", "loves a bit of glam' and that she’s 'no-nonsense".

Sausages also said in her VT: "Sausages aren't often the subject of fairy tales, but maybe that's about to change, because this little Sausage has some tales to tell.

"I could tell you I snagged myself a king, or how I was once on the menu for a princess. I'm a true romantic, and I guess one of my favourite tales was getting to see some very important people say for better or worst."

Other famous names that have been linked to Sausage include Ella Henderson, Maya Jama, Stacey Dooley, Joss Stone, Leona Lewis, Pixie Lott and Meghan Trainor.

Who is Robin?

Robin has impressed the panel with his amazing voice, but his moves have also attracted plenty of attention.

Fans are convinced that it could be JLS singer Aston Merrygold hiding behind the Robin costume, but Westlife star Nicky Byrne has also mentioned and so has Olly Murs.

Over recent weeks Robin's clues have mentioned representing his country, starting out as a performer by doing impressions, and a number of Westlife songs have been referenced along the way, too.

After one performance Robin said: "I had so much fun out there, I felt like I was in a world of my own." and another time he mentioned flying without wings - both of which are famous Westlife hits.

In his last VT Robin said: "This Robin might have a red breast, but he's also known for being blue. Starting out in any career at a young age means you have to grow up fast.

"As a Robin I've evolved quickly. You could say my discovery was almost accidental."

As well as Aston Merrygold, Nicky Byrne and Olly Murs, Craig David has also been mentioned, along with Lee Ryan, Gareth Gates and James Blunt.

Who is Badger?

Badger fans thought that perhaps Good Morning Britain's Ben Shephard could be hiding in the fury costume, but now they have turned their attention to Jamiroquai’s Jay Kay.

Some clues have referenced not being recognised in public, and there’s also been hints about hats throughout the competition.

Badger said: "So far in the competition, just like my career, I've been remaining anonymous."

Jay Kay is known for wearing large hats and fans have speculated that he’s using Badger’s giant mask to hide his identity this time. In addition to this, Badger has previously stated he was "on cloud nine" and that’s the name of one of Jamiroquai’s tracks.

There’s another clue that could be linked to the Jamiroquai song, Canned Heat. Viewers have seen oil and tin cans throughout the competition.

Badger's clues have also made a lot of references to Christmas including gifts and snow. Badger said: "Spreading cheer shouldn't just be for Christmas, it should be 365 days a year. I've been blessed and humbled to have such a platform, and try to use it to give back."

Other names mentioned by fans and the panel include Robin Thicke, Michael Buble, Louis Walsh, Matt Baker and Peter Andre.
