Judges Davina McCall, Rita Ora, Mo Gilligan and Jonathan Ross were joined by Lenny Henry on the panel for the latest episode as they tried to guess which celebrity was under each costume. 

And Maypole took to the stage to sing of of Rita’s hits with viewers at home convinced they were either Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, or even ex member Jesy Nelson. 

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, one wrote: ‘Jade from Little Mix’.

Someone else said: ‘So Maypole is actually someone from Little Mix’.

Last month eagle eyed fans put the clues together, which are shared each episode, together and believed Maypole was actually Pussycat Doll singer Melody Thornton. 

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, one fan broke down all the clues in a bid to prove their theory was correct.

They wrote: ‘Maypole – Melody Thronton. “Not my first rodeo” she won Masked Singer Australia. “Manchester, Glasgow, Shanghai’ there are the locations she played lead in The Bodyguard. “Since year of Orwell” she was born in 1985, which the title of George Orwell’s book’. 

While a second said: ‘Maypole is definitely Melody Thornton from PCD without a doubt’.

With someone else adding: ‘Maypole 100% Melody Thornton’.

And: ‘I say Maypole is Melody Thornton she was on Celebrity island with Bear Grylls and she’s performed in The Bodyguard in all the cities mentioned’.

While another viewer wrote: ‘I know you all think Jessie J but I hear Melody Thornton and most of the clues fit with what i know about her’.
