Who is Sausage on The Masked Singer?

Sausage appears to be a woman, and said in her first VT in week one: "Hello, it's me, Sausage.

"The thing about Sausages is that they're a combination of a little bit of everything, and I guess you could say the same about me.

"With my chips and my newspaper wrapping, I might look a bit of a tomboy, but i really am a girly girl.

"I love a bit of glam, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun, and to be honest I'm a bit of a silly sausage, and to be honest I just want to have a laugh.

"And tonight I'm singing a real banger."

At the end of her performance, she said: "My performances are something of a balancing act".

Some people on Twitter (as well as panelist Davina McCall...) have guessed that Sausage could be Billie Piper, while others suggested Stacey Solomon.

Stacey's Loose Women panelists discussed the rumour that it's her during the show earlier this week, with Coleen Nolan saying: "I think it definitely sounds like Stacey. There’s elements of it. And she loves sausage and chips."

In her second VT in week two, Sausage said: "Let me catch up on my last performance.

"Wow what a great response, I'm overwhelmed cos honestly I'm just a regular old sausage

"The panel tried really hard to get the scoop on who i am, this sausage has certainly put the panel in a pickle and im relishing every moment

""he thing with sausages is that they can me gourmet or they can be no nonsense, and I'm definitely a bit of the latter.

"I don't mind speaking my own mind and following my own path, but ultimately i love a bit of the simple life.

"I don't need a glam party, I'm very happy with a couple of beers and a bag of potato snacks.

"I'm equally at ease with a night in at home, you'll most likely find me with a hammer and set of nails, because I love a bit of DIY."

After her second performance, many people on Twitter have guessed that Sausage is Sheridan Smith - due to the Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps reference.

Further evidence pointing to Sheridan Smith was found in her 'two truths and a lie' segment.

Sausage said the following:

"My hair colour is officially certified by law.

"Someone once said I look like a popstar, I sound like a popstar and I am a popstar.

"I owe my career to a horse"

Jonathan Ross then pointed out Sheridan starred on the West End in Legally Blonde, which would fall in line with the first clue...

Who is presenting The Masked Singer?

Joel Dommett, who presented the first series of The Masked Singer back in January, is returning to host this time round.

He has claimed that the clues for each contestant is harder this series, saying: "The clue packages are much harder this time round, they can really throw you off the scent.

"I think last year they went a little easier as people were getting a sense of the show. I will say it’s much harder when you’re in the studio than when you’re sat at home and you’ve got Google. This year there’s certainly a couple of people that had everyone thrown off right until the end."

Who won the first series of The Masked Singer?

Nicola Roberts, dressed as Queen Bee, was crowned the first winner of the UK series.
