Here are all the clues and theories surrounding the identity of The Octopus on The Masked Singer...

It’s probably the most bizarre TV show on our boxes at the moment, but The Masked Singer has gripped us all.

The guessing game - which originated in South Korea - sees a bunch of celebrities dressed head-to-toe in whacky costumes, while they take to the stage with an iconic song.

It’s then up to judges Rita Ora, Davina McCall, Ken Jeong and Jonathan Ross to try and work out who’s behind the mask, as well as a live audience and viewers at home.

It's already been revealed that EastEnders’ Patsy Palmer was behind the Butterfly, and former Home Secretary Alan Johnson had been dressed as an Egyptian Pharaoh.

The Darkness singer Justin Hawkins was also unmasked as Chameleon, while former football star Teddy Sheringham revealed he's been moonlighting as the Tree.

But who is the Octopus? Here’s everything we know so far...

Who is the Octopus on The Masked Singer?

So far, it's been teased that the Octopus ‘is always on the go’ and has experience on catwalks.

They also claimed to be a 'role model' to kids, and added they love training in the gym.

The plot thickened this week when more clues referenced fish and chips, signing a record-breaking deal, and a possible appearance on The Apprentice.

There was then a glimpse of a photo of Jason Donovan sticking out of a wallet, while their two lies and one truth included they were discovered on a cruise ship, made their first million in the cosmetics industry, and used an accent coach to prepare for the show.

Viewers have been quick to put in their guesses, as one wrote: "The masked singer uk - Octopus is Dannii Minogue. She was on celebrity apprentice."
