The Masked Singer is back, and we're already scratching our heads trying to work out who each contestant is.

The ITV series is in its third series, and we can't wait to find out who'll be unmasked this year.

The premise of the show is simple - it sees a bunch of celebrities perform a song to a live audience each week. The catch, though, is that they're all dressed in elaborate costumes, and we have no idea who any of them are...

Judges Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall, Rita Ora, and and Jonathon Ross are all tasked with guessing who each is based on clues, and the celebs are unmasked when eliminated from the competition.

Here's everything we know about who could be behind Doughnuts' mask...

Who is Doughnuts?

Ahead of the show airing, Mo Gilligan revealed that one of Doughnuts' performances left him in hysterics which could potentially hint they may be a comedian...

Mo said: "There was one performance that Doughnuts did that I really could not stop laughing at and people are really going to enjoy it at home. I thought it was so funny."

After their first performance, fans of the show were convinced that former footballer Michael Owen is behind the mask - as many thought Doughnuts' voice sounded like his.

One person wrote: "Yeah that is 100% Michael Owen not doing a very good job at covering his voice as Donuts."

Another added: "Can’t even disguise Michael Owen’s tone on #TheMaskedSinger."

A third wrote: "Michael Owen is doughnut. FACT."

In their VT, Doughnuts said they were ‘extra speedy’, have ‘never been the lazy sort’ and that they ‘run ice rings around the competition.
