Unicorn’s identity has been at the centre of much debate on The Masked Singer, with viewers of the ITV reality show convinced for weeks the celebrity showcasing their vocal talents was Dancing on Ice star, John Barrowman, 52. With more clues given about who was hiding in the costume, the game was given away in the latest instalment, with the majority of the judging panel believing Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears, 41, was the all star in front of them. Low and behold, they were right, but viewers were upset with the discovery.
Before they took to the stage for their fourth performance of the competition, one clue about Unicorn’s celebrity identity sealed the deal for two guest panellists.
With Sharon Osbourne, 67, and Kelly Osbourne replacing judge Ken Jeong, 50, on the panel, they were shocked the contestant had a connection to their loved one, Ozzy Osbourne, 71.
Explaining they’d been in the presence of the rock icon when they were naked, his daughter was convinced the celebrity was Jake and not John as many had presumed.
As the theory came to fruition, some viewers were disappointed the former Doctor Who actor wasn’t unveiled to be the fantastical creature.
