Who is Dragon? Find out all the clues and theories so far about the real celebrity identity of The Masked Singer contestant.
The Masked Singer is *finally* back on our screens, with a fresh batch of mystery celebrities competing to win the most bizarre show on earth.
If you aren't familiar with the ITV show (where have you been?) it sees famous faces perform a song each week to a live audience and panel comprising of Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan.
The audience and panel are tasked with guessing who each performer is, before a dramatic unmasking at the end of each show...
One of the mystery celebs is Dragon - here's what we know about who may be behind the mask...
Who is Dragon? What are the clues so far?
Dragon's clues and theories from performance 1:
Dragon performed for the first time in episode one, and said in their first VT : "I am the Dragon.
"The Thing about dragons it they're all fire and strength on the outside, but they just want to be loved.
"Becoming a dragon has meant I've literally become a big character, but I'm not entirely sure that's how I'm usually thought of.
"Anyways, I mustn't drag on.
"Tonight, are you going to try and guess who I am?"
After the performance, Dragon said: "I might be cute, but sometimes I have a fiery temper."
Some people on Twitter suggested that Dragon could be Courtney Act, with others suggesting Michelle Visage.

Another guess was actress Susan Calman, who recently responded to the rumours during an appearance on Lorraine.
She said: "OK ... this is the most flattering rumour that's ever been spread.
"I didn't know about this until a couple of days ago.
"Last series of 'The Masked Singer' - I love it, I think it's amazing - I would sit at home with my wife going, 'I wonder if it's that person, I wonder if it's that person.'
"I'm not [Dragon], but thank you for thinking I was."
Dragon's clues and theories from performance 2:
Before their second performance, Dragon said: "Hiding behind Dragon, I can perform in a way i would never be able to do normally.
"The thing about dragons is, they are brave. or at leats thats what people think. I cant decide whether I'm brave or silly.
"But i'll tell you this, I'll do anything for a dare.
"It was a dare that got me started in my career.
"Being on stage, that is a scary thing. But it was from being on stage that I met a boyfriend, so it's not been all bad.
Dragon added that performing in costume helps them hide their 'big belly'.
Host Joel Dommett spoke about Dragon's costume before the show started, saying: "We’ve really stepped up the budget this year – we’ve got smoke coming out of a dragon’s mouth….and maybe sometimes its bottom. I don’t want to give anything away but you might see smoke coming out of both ends of Dragon."
Dragon's clues and theories from performance 3:
Before their third performance, Dragon said: "Being the Dragon is too much fun.
"You can't deny there's destiny in me becoming the Dragon, it's like my journey started and ended with a giant winged costume. It's true, I'm no oath breaker."
Dragon also said that they had been 'all over the world'.

Michelle Visage: 11/10
