Masked Singer fans sure Lionfish could be Eddie Izzard after language giveaway

Viewers of The Masked Singer are convinced that the identity of Lionfish, who left the celebrity panel in awe after delivering an outstanding performance of Nessun Dorma by Giacomo Puccini, could be Eddie Izzard or musical stars including Lin Manuel Miranda and Michael Ball.

After The Masked Singer UK's official Twitter feed called the performance 'off the scale' with a heart eye emoji, the programme asked viewers to send in their guesses.

Many fans have since suggested that the star behind the mask could be the famous comedian, with one saying: "Lionfish, no idea, but mum says Eddie Izzard, while a second added: "Lionfish is Eddie Izzard."

One of the clues given about the character's true identity was that they can speak both French and German, something which Eddie can do, including delivering entire comedy shows in French.

Noting this, a third viewer added: "I think lionfish is Eddie Izzard. Does comedy in French and German."

However, other fans have been quick to suggest performers including Michael Ball and Lin Manuel Miranda, due to the power of the character's singing voice, which was described as "beautiful," while one viewer said, "I'm not crying, you're crying."

Talking about their guesses, one fan said: "Michael Ball for Lionfish," while another viewer commented: "Is Lionfish Michael Ball? I mean him and Alfie Boe are my go to guesses for everyone though."

Taking all the clues into consideration, plus the performance, guesses made by both fans and the celebrity panel have also included Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood, Ellen DeGeneres, Jack Dee and once again, Lin Manuel Miranda.

Clues given to viewers and the celebrity panel about the character's true identity have included: Wanting to add some soul to the proceedings, never too late to start and very gentle.

Other clues have included: Only defends their barbs when absolutely necessary and I’ve appeared in places I’ve never been.

Whoever Lionfish is, it is very clear that both fans and the celebrity panel are eager to discover who is hiding behind the mask.
