Who is Blob? The Masked Singer UK is back - here's everything we know about new character Blob.
Everyone's favourite TV talent show is finally back on our screens, with a brand-new set of mystery celebs donning their wacky costumes and performing for a live studio audience.
The Masked Singer, which originated in South Korea, sees a number of famous faces perform behind masks - with the panel, Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan - tasked with guessing who they are.
One of the characters competing this year is Blob - here's everything we know about who could be behind the mask...
Who is Blob?
Blob appears to be a man, and said in their first VT: "I'm big, bright and loud. Oh, and it's not the first time I've been called four eyes. having these extra eyes helps me to observe everything, and I've definitely done a lot of that in my career
"As a kid I wanted to be James bond or batman, but instead I became the Blob.
"Tonight I've got all four eyes on the prize, and I'm, hoping to go out there and make a good first impression."
Many people on Twitter have guessed that Blob could be Lenny Henry, with one writing: "Lenny Henry is my guess that voice sounds so familiar".
Blob's final clue was: "I have recorded a demo for Simon Cowell".
Guesses from the judges included Greg Davies, Richard Osmond and Andy Peters.
Before Blob's second performance, he said: "In my last performance, the panel were getting some serious teacher vibes
I’m a bit of an academic, so maybe i can teach them a lesson in guessing.
"Have they got the shape of me? Absolutely not.
"As a musician, I’ve had the great fortune to duet with amazing artists over the years.
"I played to large audiences and also intimate celebrity gigs - I even played for a top political journalist.
"My career has seen me record with the best, like when i worked with George Michael’s producer.
"Even though I've got no hands, I’ve written songs too. Tonight I hope to write Blob a winning anthem."
