Whether you think it's utter genius or utterly bonkers, ITV's The Masked Singer UK has definitely got everyone buzzing on social media. Famous faces, hidden underneath elaborate costumes, showcase their vocals in front of Mo Gilligan, Davina McCall, Rita Ora and Jonathan Ross, who are then tasked with trying to uncover their identities (without much any luck).

Some of the contestants are clearly professional singers and performers, while some definitely aren't. As well as listening to them perform, the celebrity panel and viewers are also given a couple of clues to help them with their guesses.

Here are all the clues and theories we have about The Masked Singer UK season three so far.
