The Masked Singer has officially returned, and we can't wait to once again spend our Saturday nights playing the best guessing game on telly.

The ITV series is now in its third year, and Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall, Rita Ora, and Jonathan Ross have all returned to the panel.

Each series sees a bunch of mystery celebrities perform a song to a live audience while disguised in elaborate costumes, and we don't find out who they are until they're eliminated.

Here's everything we know about Rockhopper...

Who is Rockhopper?

Many fans are convinced Rockhopper is Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle, after they mentioned 'jump' and 'love machine' in their VT.

One person wrote: "Girls Aloud did a version of Jump. I think they're disguising their voice and no one would need to do that more than Nadine.

Another added: "Rockhopper... The Show... Jump... Love Machine. Nadine Coyle"

Rockhopper also said to just call them "entertainer, because I’m here to bring you a show!". They also said “Greatest Show”, which could be a reference to film The Greatest Showman.

Ahead of the show's launch, Davina McCall said of Rockhopper: "Rockhopper did a performance that was so lovely and afterwards we could see that Rockhopper was actually crying after their performance."

Joel Dommett is the host of The Masked Singer.

Speaking about his excitement for the new series, Joel said: "It's amazing. It's really great, especially this series as having an audience has really changed everything. The energy in the studio has stepped up a notch and having full families in front of you enjoying it in the same way they enjoy it in their lounge is super important. It's made it the best series yet."
