“This week five more celebs will be sweating nervously behind their elaborate costumes ready to impress the nation.
“Having stunned the judges with a show stopping performance of ‘And I Am Telling You’ from Dream Girls, Sausage has jumped to the head of the 2021 Winner market at 2/1, resulting in Badger’s price being pushed out to 4/1.
“Viking is second favourite at 10/3 ahead of their performance this weekend, could the bearded singer batter Sausage to take the title?”
As for who is hiding behind the Viking costume, the clues for the famous face have left those watching at home curious.
In their first VT, Viking said: “You are curious who I am, I am curious too, and that’s the thing about a Viking, we are a curious kind.
“We are explorers, we forge our own way. We discover answers, and in my career, throughout this competition, I’ll be looking for a voice.”
Suggestions from Twitter included Ricky Wilson, Tom Jones, Bear Grylls and Brian Cox.
Rita also thought survival expert Bear Grylls had signed up to the show, while Davina guest footballer Ledley King after the word King was emphasised

Viking’s final clue was: “I may be a Viking, but I also wear another kind of armour”.
The panel then started throwing Game of Thrones names around while some fans came to the conclusion that the Nordic persona, is in fact, James Blunt with the “armour” remark being a possible link to his time in the army.
Viking’s vocal ability also surprised viewers.
Taking to Twitter to comment, one said: “Holy s*** Viking’s voice surprised me #TheMaskedSinger.”
“Viking actually has the most beautiful voice #TheMaskedSinger,” someone else said.
A third wrote: “Don’t have a clue but I’m stunned in the Viking with his voice #TheMaskedSinger.”
“I was not expecting that voice from Viking! I am so confused. #TheMaskedSinger,” a tweet read.
