Here's everything you need to know about the Chameleon from The Masked Singer...

The Masked Singer practically has practically broken the internet. Originating in South Korea, the ITV singing competition sees stars perform in front of four judges and a packed audience, while their true identity stays hidden behind a mask. 

The series has already seen Patsy Palmer, Alan Johnson, Teddy Sheringham and Kelis revealed after they were eliminated.

And during the second week, The Darkness' Justin Hawkins was unmasked as the Chameleon.

Here's everything you need to know about him...

Now we know the Chameleon was Justin Hawkins, but in the first episode they teased they were a fan of “tech of the 1970s”.

They also said they are a "dazzling urban act" who has "many talents", and voiced a children's cartoon character.

And after impressing audiences with their cover of Creep by Radiohead, fans have started guessing who it could be.

Many viewers of the show reckon the Chameleon is in fact I’m A Celebrity presenter Declan Donnelly.

On wrote on Twitter: "I have an exam tomorrow and need to be revising but what am I doing, rewatching #TheMaskedSinger to convince myself that the chameleon is Dec from Ant and Dec and the hedgehog is Rob Brydon."

Another said: "Those of you who watched #TheMaskedSinger last night, who thinks the chameleon is Dec? I’m still convinced that it could be, the voice sounded like him at times and the clue was he voiced a cartoon character and obviously Dec voiced Engie Benjy."

Other guesses included Jason Donovan, Phillip Schofield, Chris Eubank and Alexander Armstrong.
