The Masked Singer: Badger’s fate sealed as difficult clues lead him to victoryJanuary 9, 2021
Masked Singer: Badger gives away identity clues
The 2021 series of The Masked Singer is well under way and tonight, several more acts will take to the stage hoping they can conceal their identities for another week. But, eagle-eyed viewers think they have worked out who is underneath the Badger costume and suspect he will go all the way to the final before being unveiled.
Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan will be back playing detective this evening, throwing their ludicrous suggestions into the game.
But what do we know so far about Badger?
The previous clips showed a bicker jacket-wearing Badger being filmed fixing a motorbike.
He was chasing about “being hidden” and “anonymous, and a lucky celebrity who is able to walk down the street with no-one knowning their identity.

Another clue was Badger sees things “like a virtual world” – figured him out yet?
His debut performance was the classic Feeling Good and while it was originally recorded by Nina Simone, Badger’s version had more similarities to Muse’s cover.
As for who the judges thought was hiding behind the animal head, Davina wondered whether Badger could be The Stig from Top Gear.
While the three were blown away by his surprisingly good vocals, some suggestions were David Myers one half of the Hairy Bikers, actor Andy Serkis, Jay Kay from Jamiroquai or Hollywood star Idris Actor.
For those watching the show at home, many took to Twitter with their guesses, with some thinking the anonymity clues were a reference to Daft Punk.
Or perhaps a guitarist in a well-known band, or even dumber Dom Howard from Muse.
The biker reference saw motorcycle racer Carl Fogerty’s name being thrown into the mix.
However, many viewers ignored the clues entirely and thought Badger sounded more like Pop Idol’s Will Young.

Either way, the difficult clues have left bookmakers claiming Badger will make it to the final.
Betway gave Express.co.uk the latest odds regarding the celebrity behind Badger.
One name in the ring was David Myers, with odds on 4/1 to be the 2021 winner while Andy Serkis was at 5/1.
Damon Albarn was third at 7/1 while Mick Hucknall’s odds were 10/1 for being the star behind the mask.
Betway’s Chad Yeomans said: “Having already unmasked pop royalty in Week One and Two, The Masked Singer has turned us into a nation of amateur detectives.
“While we have only had a few clues, it sounds like Swan hails from across the pond and their career has been ‘very honoured’.
“Drag Race’s Michelle Visage is odds-on at 10/11 to be Swan, having crowned a fair few Queens in her 10 years as a resident judge.
“Or it could be battle of the bandmates as Pussycat Doll members Ashley Roberts and Kimberly Wyatt are available at 9/4 and 11/4 respectively to be the regal bird.”
There are ten more celebrities who need to be unmasked, who will be the third?
The Masked Singer airs tonight on ITV at 7pm.
