Who is Pigeon? Clues and theories so far

Pigeon was revealed as comedian Katherine Ryan after she sung a rendition of Cheryl Fight For This Love.

See the full list of clues and hints here:

  • "It must be dove — it's Pigeon!"
  • Speaks with an Essex accent
  • "I might be an old bird but aging has never bothered me and even though I may have ruffled a few feathers in my time, personally I'm unflappable so I'm good at being able to ask the tougher questions."
  • Pigeon can also be seen with carrots in their handbag.

Judge Jonathan Ross guessed it could be Queen Consort Camilla Parker-Bowles, while Rita was convinced that Pigeon was a young person such as Maya Jama.

Gemma Collins and Emily Atack were also suggested due to the cockney accent.
