Masked Singer: Robin gives away identity clues

The Masked Singer began on Boxing Day (December 26) on ITV as the first six contestants took to the stage. Many of the new performers had the judges and the viewers stumped, including Robin. Express.co.uk has rounded up some of the major theories about who could be behind the mask.

Who is the Robin on The Masked Singer?

On Saturday night, Robin took to the stage of The Masked Singer and impressed the judges with his vocal skills.

Performing Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake, he left everyone guessing exactly who he was in the new season of the show.

There were some clues dropped throughout the show, including some hints about boxing as well as a reference to “flying without wings.”

Judges Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross, Mo Gilligan and Davina McCall were mixed in their guesses.

These included Bruno Mars, Amir Khan, Joe Wicks and even Dean Gaffney.

Following his performance, viewers have been speculating about who they think the real Robin is.

Aston Merrygold

One of the biggest names guessed so far is JLS band member Aston Merrygold.

Not only does Robin’s voice sound similar to the singer’s but the song choice also left some connecting the dots.

Can’t Stop the Feeling was used in the films Trolls, which Aston did a much-loved dance to when he appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017.

There was also a hint about the Westlife song ‘Flying Without Wings’ during his performance.

And fans may remember how JLS performed this song with the boyband in The X Factor final.

A third clue it could be the singer came from the fact he actually performed the song Rockin’ Robin on Stars in their Eyes in 2002.

This was the young star’s first breakthrough on television and he appeared as Michael Jackson.

Therefore, his costume could be in reference to this on the show.

Karim Zeroual

Another possible identity behind the mask is Karim Zeroual.

This was because during Robin’s clue package there was a sign which read Albert Square.

Karim is best-known as a presenter but he also had a small part in EastEnders in 2006.

Posting on Twitter viewer _Ptbrad wrote: “I think Robin is the Karim geez that was in [sic] EastEnders and Strictly Come Dancing…”

Jake Wood

The EastEnders clue also got some wondering if Jake Wood might be behind the mask.

He is known for playing Max Branning in the long-running soap.

However, it was also the boxing clues which led some to make a link.

This is because he has hosted the boxing podcast Pound for Pound with Spencer Oliver since 2018.

Lee Ryan

Another guess is Lee Ryan from the boyband Blue, given Robin’s high singing voice.

This could make sense as some fans pointed out he has previously appeared in EastEnders.

Fan Lucy14225598 tweeted: “Robin definitely has to be Lee Ryan.

“Woody Woodward in Eastenders, has that iconic high singing voice and was the one from Blue who commented about Westlife’s flying without wings.”

The Masked Singer airs on Saturday evenings on ITV.
