Who is Bagpipes? Clues and theories so far

Bagpipes has said they have a 'bit of Scottish' in their past, and their VT was filmed at Edinburgh Castle.

They also said they were no stranger to an instrument, and that they're ‘Not going to be as easy as ACDC’.

The likes of Pat Cash, David Tennant, and Richard Madden have all been put forward as guesses.

Some fans have become convinced that Bagpipes is AC/DC guitarist Angus Young.

One person tweeted: "I reckon bagpipe is Angus Young from ACDC #maskedsinger".

Another added: "I think bagpipes is Angus Young from acdc #MaskedSingerUK".

A third wrote "#TheMaskedSinger very confident that the bagpipes are Angus Young from AC/DC."

Angus is Australian, but he was born in Scotland - which could explain the Bagpipes.
