Sausage first performance clues

Sausage said in her first VT: "Hello, it's me, Sausage.

"The thing about Sausages is that they're a combination of a little bit of everything, and I guess you could say the same about me.

"With my chips and my newspaper wrapping, I might look a bit of a tomboy, but i really am a girly girl.

"I love a bit of glam, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun, and to be honest I'm a bit of a silly sausage, and to be honest I just want to have a laugh.

"And tonight I'm singing a real banger."

Sausage second performance clues

In her second VT in week two, Sausage said: "Let me catch up on my last performance.

"Wow what a great response, I'm overwhelmed cos honestly I'm just a regular old sausage

"The panel tried really hard to get the scoop on who i am, this sausage has certainly put the panel in a pickle and im relishing every moment

""he thing with sausages is that they can me gourmet or they can be no nonsense, and I'm definitely a bit of the latter.

"I don't mind speaking my own mind and following my own path, but ultimately i love a bit of the simple life.

"I don't need a glam party, I'm very happy with a couple of beers and a bag of potato snacks.

"I'm equally at ease with a night in at home, you'll most likely find me with a hammer and set of nails, because I love a bit of DIY."

Sausage third performance clues:

In her third VT, she said: "The joy of this mask is that you're totally trying to guess what I look like.

"I'll be honest with you - someone once said I look like a horse.

"I do enjoy hiding my face behind this mask, although its not the first time i've made sure you can't see my face in my work

"Tonight the chips are down, and I'm just hoping I can cut the mustard."

Sausage celebrity theories

The most popular theory on Sausage's identity is currently Sheridan Smith, with Billie Piper and Stacey Solomon also popular theories.

Further 'evidence' pointing to Sausage being Sheridan Smith was found in her 'two lies and a truth' segment in episode three.

Sausage said the following:

"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"

Jonathan Ross then pointed out Sheridan starred on the West End in Legally Blonde, which would fall in line with the first clue...

The odds for Sausage (from Betfair) are as follows:

Sheridan Smith: 8/11

Joss Stone: 4/1

Stacey Solomon: 7/1

Billie Piper: 16/1

Ellie Goulding: 25/1

Pixie Lott: 33/1

Badger said in its first VT: "Yo, I'm the Badger.

"The Badger is a pretty unmistakable animal, yet life behind the mask means my identity is going to be completely hidden.

"In my career, I've been totally used to being anonymous.

"Seriously, there have been times i could have been on the street surrounded by people, but nobody would have had any idea who I am.

"Tonight, it's me versus Sausage, and I';m going to try and claw my way to victory."

Badger second performance clues

Badger said in his second VT: "My last performance was amazing.

"When it comes to digging, they'll have to get up extra early to catch me.

"Badgers are shy creatures, and I certainly was when I was younger, especially around girls.

"At school, I wrote poems about girls that I liked, but I was so shy i'd never show them.

"Due to my shyness, for years, I had a talent for years I kept hidden

"Then why day I decided to show my friends what i could do, and this badger blossomed.

"Then I learnt a lesson - be yourself is your greatest gift.

"Badger fur is black and white and I'm going to go out there and win tonight."

Badger's 'two lies and a truth' are as follows:

"I'm good at dodging furniture.

"When working, I'm often found in green.

"Strictly speaking, dancing is something I'm well known for."

Third performance clues:

Before his third performance, Badger said: "So far in the competition, I have the panel flummexed.

"To be honest, I'm on cloud 9 about that.

"Badgers are very homely, they live in big families in well maintained sets.

"I grew up in a large household. I guess you can say I was one of a kind, my family were all very creative.

"It was mum who opened me up to my gift when I was very young. With so many of us under one roof, there was little room to spare.

"There wasn't even room for a mouse in the house."

Fourth performance clues:

Badger said before his fourth performance: "There's more than one type of studio this badger's familiar with.

"Does this sound cryptic? Good, because I love to play games.

"What I can tell you is that tonight, this Badger's going to come out fighting."

In Badger's backstage footage, he picked up a note saying: "Badger, just wanted to say thank you. Love, Barbra".

"I've really puffed out my chest in pride when I've represented my country."

He also hinted that he could have played in a red shirt while playing football, indicating he could have played for Manchester United or Liverpool.
