The Masked Singer UK is back on our screens, and we're so excited to don our detective hats and play the best guessing game on telly once again.

One of the mystery characters is Mushroom - here's what we know about who could be behind the mask...
Who is Mushroom?
Mushroom used a mixture of accents, including Irish and Yorkshire, and at one point said that they want to "Want to bring peace and love man".
Guesses have included Aisling Bea, Liam Gallagher, Rebel Wilson, Sia, and Vicky McClure.
Some fans have also guessed Mushroom is Sheridan Smith, after viewers appeared to spot 'two pints of milk' in her VT - which could be a reference to her role on Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.

A third wrote: "#MaskedSingerUK two pints of milk in mushroom's VT? Sheridan smith? 2 pints of larger."
