Fox is just one of five contestants still battling it out to remain anonymous on The Masked Singer after weeks of showcasing their stellar vocals. They came close to being booted off the ITV reality show in the most recent round of the competition, but the judges decided the hidden celebrity had done enough to progress. With their identity still a tightly guarded secret, Rita, 29, may have given the game way last night after getting distracted by the costume and making a blunder with regards to the A-lister she was trying to name.
Taking to the stage for the fourth time, Fox performed a rendition of 35-year-old American singer Katy Perry’s chart-topping hit Firework in the latest episode of the reality show.
Following their performance, yet more clues were dropped about who could be hiding inside the elaborate costume, with one of the most prevalent being they had worked with musical composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber, 71.
Despite this cheeky spoiler, Rita decided to hone in on the hints the celebrity could be connected to the radio after the contestant performed On The Radio for one of their earlier performances.
Distracted by the fox costume and believing BBC Radio Two presenter Sara Cox, 45, was the all-star standing in front of her, the chart-topper threw the name Sara Fox into the mix.

Before making her blunder, Rita explained how she’d got to her decision, telling Fox: “I definitely think you’re British. Definitely musical theatre.
“You might be on the radio a little bit because you did sing On The Radio, so maybe it’s Sara Fox,” she declared, unaware of the awkward error she’d made.
Fellow judge Jonathan Ross, 59, responded to the claim by saying: “If any of us knew who she was.”
Host Joel Dommett, 34, then corrected the professional singer, asking her: “Do you mean Sara Cox?”
