Russell Watson has revealed that he “knows” that The Masked Singer’s Traffic Cone is his friend, Aled Jones.
The operatic singer was quizzed by Susanna Reid and Adil Ray on Good Morning Britain about whether he was behind the mask of the Traffic Cone on the hit ITV singing show.
Adil even joked to “zoom in" and "check the sweat on his brow" as they grilled him.
However, the 55 year old confidently dismissed the claim and admitted he “knows” who it is and shared clues to prove his theory.
Russell responded: “No, no, no, I know who that is.
“The strange thing is, I didn’t know who it was when I saw the first performance," he continued. "I had no idea who it was and then I heard the second performance and I know who it is.”
The singer went on to say that he was “absolutely certain” that the person behind the Traffic Cone was fellow classical and operatic singer, Aled Jones.
“I’m absolutely certain,” Russell continued, “he’s not admitted it, he’s not mentioned it at all, but I’m convinced that that is my mate Aled Jones.”
The ITV presenters were surprised by the suggestion with Adil commenting: “Aled Jones, Very deep for Aled Jones that!”
He added: “Come on Russell that’s a distraction!”
Yet, fans were already confused about the Traffic Cone's true identity as Rob Beckett appeared to reveal himself as the masked singer on social media.
As a few viewers shared that they thought Rob could be behind the mask, the 36 year old comedian took to Twitter to get involved in the speculation.
His tongue and cheek tweet read: “Just send this out once I’ve been unmasked.”
He continued: “Thanks for all the support being the Traffic Cone I absolutely loved it. Great show. The kids couldn’t believe it was me.”
Fans were divided by the potential reveal, as they didn't know whether to take it as a joke or as a double bluff.
One wrote: Noooooo you just ruined it for me. Well done if it’s really you.”
As another added: “If this is true, I’d like to point out I guessed this last night.”
As a third exclaimed “I knew it” as they had always said it was him.
ITV’s hit singing competition has left fans scheming about who is behind the mask each week and they have predicted that the Panda is actually Michaela Strachan.
Grand slam tennis player Pat Cash was the latest star to be voted off the show, as he was revealed to be the man underneath the Bagpipes costume. The Masked Singer continues on Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
