If you've been living under a rock and aren't familiar with its format, the show sees mystery celebs don elaborate costume and perform a song each week to a live audience and panel of judges, who are then tasked with guessing who they are.

They are helped along by a number of handy clues given in their VTs, costumes and song choices.

While some characters remain a complete mystery (see: Badger), there are a few who have a clear front-runner when it comes to celeb guesses.

One of these is Sausage, who the bookies have put at odds of 2/1 as being Sheridan Smith.

However, a new theory could throw a huge spanner in the works - as it claims that Sausage is actually Stacey Solomon, who is current second favourite at 5/1.

TikTok user Sophie Marsh filmed an advert promoting the show last Saturday, with 'That's Not My Name' by The Ting Tings playing in the background as the characters performed.

And, as the singer sang the lyrics 'They Call Me Stacey', the shot cut to Sausage's performance.

Sophie wrote alongside the video: "IT SAYS STACEY ON SAUSAGE!!! Is that a clueee".

Sausage has given away a number of clues regarding her identity in her first three performances, including that she's a 'combination of a little bit of everything', and is a 'bit of a girly girl' even though she looks like a tomboy.

Her 'two lies and a truth' were:

"My hair colour is officially certified by law.

"Someone once said I look like a popstar, I sound like a popstar and I am a popstar.

"I owe my career to a horse"

Stacey's Loose Women panelists previously discussed the rumour that it's her, with Coleen Nolan saying: "I think it definitely sounds like Stacey. There’s elements of it. And she loves sausage and chips."

The full list of odds for Sausage are below:

(from Betfair)

Sheridan Smith: 1/2

Stacey Solomon: 5/1

Billie Piper: 8/1

Beverley Knight: 12/1

Stacey Dooley: 18/1
