Judge Davina McCall thought it could be singer and presenter Jane due to her strong northern accent and powerful vocals.

And during the video, mushroom teased a jet setting lifestyle heading to 'exciting places far from home', which would fit Jane as she has many travel shows under her belt.

A reference to ‘chattering teeth’ also caught Davina's attention.

She said on the show: "I feel that that is a proper, northern accent. The chattering teeth immediately made me think of Loose Women, you know chatter. I thought of Jane McDonald."

There was also a telltale sign picked up by viewers. The letter W was shown in the VT, which they believe could be a reference to her hometown of Wakefield.

One wrote: ‘Mushroom is Jane McDonald? W for Wakefield, been all around the world… #TheMaskedSinger,’

Another said said: "I love #mushroom she is stunning voice #MaskedSingerUK I agree with @ThisisDavina she sounds like jane mcdonald.

A twitter follower added: "Jane McDonald for #Mushroom I’m saying #MaskedSingerUK.

And another tweeted; "Jane McDonald 100% #mushroom #MaskedSingerUK.

On Saturday, Will Young became the latest celebrity to be eliminated after being unmasked as Lionfish after landing in the bottom two with Firework.

The Masked Singer continues on Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
