In the clues, Panda said: “I like to follow my own path. Sometimes you find a fork in the road and make a choice to explore another avenue."

The mystery performer then went on to stage to sing One Direction’s popular hit ‘Story Of My Life’ and now fans are convinced they’ve uncovered the link between Panda and 1D.

Fans have been speculating that the celeb in Panda’s costume could be Australian-British singer-songwriter Natalie Imbruglia, who was a judge on the X Factor when Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik were put together in One Direction.

Another theory is that the Panda is Cheryl, who was also a judge at the time and went on to date Liam, with whom she now shares 4-year-old son Bear Payne.

Taking to Twitter to share their theories, one fan penned: “Panda is Natalie Imbruglia, she was on the X factor panel when one direction were formed."

"I'm still sure this is Natalie Imbruglia,” speculated another.

A third went on to say: “Surely Panda is Cheryl Cole? Son called Bear, sang one direction and the father of her child is in one direction, was a judge on X factor! #Panda #TheMaskedSinger.”

“Panda has to be Cheryl..... lots of 1D references... and doesnt she have a child called Bear? Eyes#TheMaskedSinger.”

Panda is still in the competition so fans will have to wait to find out who Panda really is.
