The Masked Singer is back in the UK for a second series! But which celebrities will be behind the elaborate costumes?
After a hugely popular first series in early 2020, the guessing game is back for series 2 on ITV.
First airing on Boxing Day 2020, The Masked Singer will continue into early 2021 with 12 more famous faces singing classic tunes for judges Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and new member Mo Gilligan, alongside host Joel Dommett.
As each episode passes, we'll look at the theories and clues behind each mask, including Alien:
The Masked Singer series 2: Alien clues
In episode 1, Alien revealed:
- A wedding dress in her VT.
- The VT took place in a crime scene.
- “I have never been invaded but I have been part of a battle.”
The Masked Singer series 2: Alien is revealed!
Sadly for Alien, her identity was revealed at the end of episode 1, after she came bottom in the voting.
She was revealed to be none other than... Sophie Ellis-Bextor!
Her 'battle' reference wasn't actually about her famous chart battle with Victoria Beckham back in 2000, but actually about her cameo appearance in Game of Thrones.
She also wore a wedding dress in her 'Get Over You' music video, and the crime scene referred to her song 'Murder on the Dancefloor'.
