Who is behind the mask of the Hedgehog? The Masked Singer fans share their top theories and clues on which celebrity it could be.
The Masked Singer has given UK viewers a lot to think about when it comes to who is disguised as Hedgehog.
The ITV show, which originated in South Korea, has become a massive hit with the British public and with Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall, and Ken Jeong from the US version as the judges, it's sure to be renewed for another season.
With the final nearing on February 15, the Hedgehog is set to go head to head with the Octopus and Queen Bee to win the first series.
But who is behind the Hedgehog costume? Here's what we know...
Hedgehog performed Little Mix's 'Black Magic' on the opening night of the show and most of the guesses on social media believed the singer was either a male British comedian or actor.
Guesses included Jason Manford, Michael Sheen, Bill Bailey or Michael McIntyre.
However, Denise Van Outen - who was recently revealed as the Fox, threw in a spanner in the works after guessing a name that has yet to be mentioned; actor Luke Evans.
Her reason behind this was: "Because he’s made an album recently," and she may be on to something!

Fans still have mixed opinions about who it could be, with one tweeting: "Normally I don't pay attention to reality type programmes but The Masked Singer has me hooked with all the detective stuff. Hedgehog sounds like Jason Manford, complete with an operatic voice and Salford accent."
Another added, "Catching up on the masked singer and that is totally Jason manford dressed as a steampunk hedgehog singing an absolutely brilliantly batty rendition of Black Magic right...?!"
In the episode he revealed the following details about him:
- Is a bit posh
- Is mostly 'active at night'
- Most happy on stage
- Is more introverted than you might expect
- They had a job where they 'died at 8.30 every night'
