MASKED Singer fans are now convinced that former Bake Off host Sue Perkins is The Dragon.
The second series of the ITV reality singing competition hit our screens back in December and since then fans have been scratching their heads over who is behind each of the masks.

With seven celebs already revealed, many viewers think they’ve got the person behind The Dragon costume sussed.
Just last month they thought that Australian drag queen Courtney Act was the front runner to be unmasked as the character.
But with references to The Rainbow List, clues connected to her Supersizers Eat show and an identical singing voice to her, many think that the mystical creature is in fact Sue Perkins.
Many fans have taken to Twitter to share their theories.

Many have picked up on the LGBT references in the character, with one tweeting: “She’s on the Independent’s rainbow list. Bake Off timer. Celeb Big Brother (house with money). QI etc.”
A second said: “She’s a big fan of game of thrones. A member of the rainbow list. Used to eat weird stuff on her supersize programmes with Giles she cant turn down a dare etc. Theres loads. Its 100% her
Meanwhile others touched upon her previous TV work, with one pointing out: “On the subject of thinking dragon is Sue Perkins, not Courtney act. All the weird foods could be reference to the show she did: The Supersizers/The Supersizers Go #TheMaskedSingerUK.”
Another added: “All the refs to food were the progs she did with Giles Coran. One clue was she met her boyfriend on stage – she had a 6 year relationship with ‘Rob’ who she met in a school production of Carmen.”

A sixth chimed in: “#MaskedSingerUK #dragon IS Sue Perkins. Everything matches.”
And a seventh simply tweeted: “Dragon is Sue Perkins.”

Many thought that the clue was literally in the name, which made them lean towards Courtney.
Another was that they once suffered an embarrassing incident with a famous shoe.
This reminded fans of when the Aussie star trod on her dress while wearing famous shoe brand Louboutin and flashed the audience as they entered the Big Brother house in 2018.
But the most recent clues have cemented their thoughts and they are sticking with the theory that Sue Perskins is The Dragon.

And while it looks like fans have sussed out The Dragon, they have been left pondering over the remaining characters.
Many think that Stacey Solomon is The Sausage, singer Neyo is The Badger and JLS’ Aston Merrygold is The Robin.
