Masked Singer viewers mistake BBC breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty for Harlequin.
The 45-year-old breakfast TV presenter was missing from today’s show (January 23) and the viewers quickly put two and two together.
As a result, they are convinced that Naga will enter the successful ITV singing competition.
Did Naga shoot The Masked Singer?
Naga recently took a new job at BBC Radio Five Live and now only presents BBC Breakfast Thursday through Saturday.
However, she was missing conspicuously on television this morning.

What were the fan theories?
Despite the fact that The Masked Singer finished filming, some fans were convinced that Naga was under the mask.
One said: “@BBCBreakfast, it’s not a giveaway that @ TVNaga01 isn’t there because she’s recording #TheMaskedSingerUK, is it?”
Are you going to practice your next song for #TheMaskedSingerUK?
“Are you going to practice your next song for #TheMaskedSingerUK?” said another.
Why is Naga suspected of being on the show?
On last week’s show, Davina McCall suspected Naga was under Harlequin’s mask.
Fellow guest Rita Ora declined the idea, saying that “Voices are definitely not breakfast messages.”

Naga replied to Rita on her radio show with a comment: “We are not going to say whether I am a Harlequin or not, this is so that the program can continue and you can keep guessing.”
However, there was another clue during the show.
A spokesman said, “I get up to work in front of the sun.”
