The Masked Singer's Hedgehog appeared to have been accidentally unveiled on Good Morning Britain during Jason Manford's appearance on the show today.
Over the past week, fans of the bizarre new ITV singing show have become convinced that Hedgehog's posh accent is being faked.
As a result, many have speculated that Jason Manford could be the man behind the mask.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain today, he addressed rumours that he was taking part in the ITV show.
After revealing that his new quiz show, First & Last, had been moved to make way for the Masked Singer, Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway probed him on the rumours.
Kate asked him: "Have you moved the time because you're defeating yourself?"
"I don't want to spoil the show by saying no but – no," he laughingly replied. "My own kids asked me as well!"
Guessed names have so far included Charlotte Church as the Queen Bee and John Barrowman as the Unicorn , but viewers have so far been stumped over the Hedgehog.
However, after the creature came out again at the weekend, viewers believed they finally uncovered who is inside the prickly character.
One viewer decided to take matters in their own hands by directly tweeted to Jason: "I think you’re trying to put on a posh accent on #TheMaskedSingerUK but you said the word “last” and you couldn’t hide your Man accent .
"My money is still on hedgehog being you," they confidently declared.
Another viewer piped in: "Just spent 15 mins looking up YouTube videos of Jason Manford singing Les Mis songs to work out if he is the Hedgehog. Answer – yes I think so!"
But he added that his own thoughts about who it could be, revealing that he thought it could be Alexander Armstrong.
Jason also spoke about hosting the Olivier Awards but admitted that he was "a bit nervous" despite having presented them last year.
However he confessed: "I'm not going to do a Ricky Gervais and take down West End!"
