It's finally time to time out your detective hats once again - because the The Masked Singer is back on our screens.

The bonkers ITV show is back for a third season, and Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Mo Gilligan, and Davina McCall have returned to the panel.

The Masked Singer sees mystery celebrity contestants perform a song each week to a live audience while dressed in elaborate costumes, and we don't find out their identity until they're eliminated from the competition.

One of the characters taking part is Firework. Here's what we know about who could be behind the mask...

Who is Firework?

In their first clue package, Firework described themselves as a 'pocket rocket' and 'bundle of energy'.

They also added: "I light up the street with a different kind of flash."

Mel C, Michelle Keegan, and Molly-Mae Hague were all put forward as potential contenders by the panel.

Before their second performance, Firework said: "The reality of being a firework is that you're always looking for a spark. I like things that spark my interest.

"I have a very short attention span. I've always been that was - when I was just a little sparkler I was always jumping from sport to sport.

"I won a gold medal once, and I did end up taking part in some games later on in life.

"Those early years lit a fuse under me that made me the firework I am today."

Many have predicted that Firework is Paigie Turley, who appeared in Britain's Got Talent when she was 14 and also previously won Love Island.

One viewer wrote: "Firework has to be Paige Turley from Love Island."

Another added: "I could be way off but I'm going to throw in Paige Turley from Love Island for Firework."
