Fans think they've rumbled the identity of Dragon on The Masked Singer...

The Masked Singer is now entering its fourth week, and if you - like us - are donning your detectives hats and playing the best guessing game on TV, we have great news.

One of the characters - Dragon - may just have been identified, as fans have found an old performance of Courtney Act singing the same song the character performed on Saturday's show (You've Got A Friend In Me), and the two sound suspiciously similar...

Sharing the clip to Twitter, one fan wrote: "if this isn’t the dragon on #TheMaskedSinger ! The voices are identical!".

Many agreed - with one writing: "Thought the exact same thing, why I searched for this video."

Another added: "This is a clear give away for Dragon on the masked singer."

Dragon gave away a few other clues that could point to Courtney - including that they have 'two left feet', which many took as a dancing show reference, and indicate Courtney's appearance in Dancing With The Stars Australia in 2019.

Another hint given by Dragon was that the clue was 'in the name', which could indicate they are a drag star.

Courtney has now responded to speculation on Twitter, tweeting: "If you listen to the Dragon sing and you think it’s me, and not [Sue Perkins]- you’ve got rocks in ya head."

The Masked Singer returned for its third episode last Saturday, and saw Dragon, Robin, Badger, Swan and Sausage all perform their second song.

After a tense sing-off between Sausage and Swan, it was Swan who was eliminated by the judges - and it turned out it was Martine McCutcheon.

Jonathan Ross guessed correctly, due to her hints referring to a Prime Minister and President, which he correctly guessed was a nod to her role in Love Actually.

Speaking about her decision to go on the show, she said: "I just thought it would be so lovely to just come up and have fun."
