The Masked Singer is now entering its fourth week, meaning we're firmly in detective mode trying to work out the identity of each character.

So far, we've had Chandelier unmasked as Heather Small, Snow Leopard as Gloria Hunniford, Lionfish as Will Young, and this weekend saw Bagpipes revealed as Pat Cash.

One of the characters who's had many of us stumped is Poodle, but many viewers have a new theory about who they could be after a key clue on Saturday night.

Before their performance, Poodle said they were 'no stranger' to wearing a dog collar.

After this clue, many people rushed to Twitter to theorise that Reverend Richard Coles, who was formerly in 1980s band the Communards, is behind the mask.

One person wrote: "#themaskedsinger Poodle I think is Richard Coles."

A fourth said: "Poodle is Richard Coles, Reverend, Cricket, Science. I have no doubts #TheMaskedSinger."

The Masked Singer continues on Saturday at 7pm.
