Who is Rhino? Clues and theories so far

We don’t know too much yet, but the Rhino could be something to do with their profession.

See the full list of clues and hints here:

  • “They were horn this way – it’s Rhino!”
  • "I'm the authority in these parts."
  • Walked into a town called Cobalt.
  • Walked past three arrows and then looked at a book that said he was responsible for '2 Bad Jokes'.
  • "I'm chief of this town and happy-go-lucky but one of you guys might think I'm quite muggy."

James Blunt, Freddie Flintoff and Rylan Clark were suggested by the judges, as well as comedian and social commentator Russell Brand.

On Twitter, people thought that Rhino was singer James Arthur.

Another clue is that judge Davina McCall said Rhino's performance is particularly emotional.

"Rhino has been particularly emotive. There are people who completely draw you in,” she admitted.

"It’s lucky for Rhino, actually, that they can pull some emotion out of the bag, because it's very, very hard in that costume to give us anything at all. They are massive, and they are quite humble.

"They keep putting their little hooves together, it looks so sweet. If it's possible to have a sweet rhino, this is it."
