The Masked Dancer welcomed six hidden stars during the first episode of the series, here’s everything we know about who Astronaut might be so far.

Saturday night’s programme marked the debut of the second series of the competition after Louis Smith won the first-ever UK series back in 2021.

It soon got pretty exciting with the arrival of half of the brand new secret celebrities. 

One act that has intrigued fans already is Astronaut, who was up against Odd socks.

But who could be behind the out-of-this-world costume?

  • Describes themselves as an astronaut
  • Says their mission on this planet ‘is to explore’
  • Is her to ‘seek out new adventures,’ so perhaps, a star who’s moved from the UK from another country?
  • A fan of a cheeseboard?
  • ‘Space might be the front…ear, but you may have heard from me by the same name more than once’

Many of the initial clues related to space, with Astronaut describing themselves as someone who was ‘put on the planet to explore’.

Brian also had a career before being a famous scientist, acting as a keyboard player for the band D:Ream in the 1990s.

But could it be the physicist behind the costume?

The Masked Dancer continues next Saturday on ITV.
