Masked Singer UK’s second season keeps viewers busy as they grapple with theories that celebs are behind the costumes.
Tonight, the second celebrity was exposed at the end of the show when the judges voted Seahorse out.
Mel B was behind the disguise – which Rita Ora, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan guessed correctly.
But the fans of the show still don’t know the identities of the Harlequin, Bush Baby, Grandfather Clock, Viking and Blob.

What are the best and funniest theories about any masked singer? Continue reading…
Who is harlequin
We thought she might be Ruth Langsford at first because she’s a bit posh and, when it comes to cards, pointed out that she’s a bit of Jack. Her teenage son with husband Eamonn Holmes is called Jack!

One guess to the left of the field, however, was a former Strictly Come Dancing pro …

Who is Viking?
So we thought it was Si King, one of the Hairy Bikers, because he kept emphasizing the ‘KING’ Viking.
Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson – and formerly The Voice – was a popular choice on social media.
But a few others suggested Morten Harket from the pop band A-ha – he’s Norwegian (tick!) And also performed there on The Voice (Viking gave a hint to find his voice).
