Singer-songwriter and radio presenter Jamie Cullum was Rita Ora’s initial guess after hearing Piranha’s epic vocal talents.

‘I’m speechless. I think it’s one of the best vocalists we have on this whole show right now,’ she praised.

‘Just based off the vocal, it sounded a bit like Jamie Cullum to me.’

Jamie, 44, is best known as an English jazz-pop singer, songwriter, and radio presenter.

Although primarily a vocalist and pianist, he also plays guitar and drums with nine studio albums to his name.

Listen, it’s The Masked Singer, anything could happen.

Mo Gilligan threw a rogue guess out there after listening closely to Piranha’s accent.

Of course, contestants have been known to fake their voices in the past, but the panel picked up on twinges of Americanisms, such as Piranha’s pronunciation of ‘water.’

‘It could be someone who is British but they spend a lot of time in America,’ Mo noted.

‘An English man in New York, piranhas bite you, they sting, it could be Sting.’

Sting, 72, definitely has the vocals, but does that mean he is Piranha?

Danny Jones

While the judges weren’t confident at all with their guesses, viewers at home reckon McFly star Danny Jones is behind Piranha’s mask.

Taking to X following their Masked Singer debut, viewers put forward plenty of evidence, saying they wouldn’t be shocked if the mask came off and Danny was underneath.

Many said it was ‘obvious’, with clues referring to McFly travelling to America, and the motion sickness being a nod to McFly’s Motion in the Ocean album.

Have viewers cracked the case?

The Masked Singer continues on Saturday at 7pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
